All Jennifer Lopez Movies Ranked
The player: Jennifer Lopez. The plan: Hustlers. The heist: Making off with awards season hype. Strictly looking at her filmography and its attendant Tomatometers, Lopez isn’t top billing when it comes to Oscar contention, but her new film, Wall Street femme heist flick Hustlers, is just the vehicle for a gold-studded getaway.
Before Hustlers, Lopez hadn’t had a Fresh movie since 1998, though her 21st century filmography still includes commercial hits (The Wedding Planner, Monster-in-Law, The Boy Next Door) among notorious bombs like Gigli. And The Cell certainly has its fans.
With Hustlers drawing up praise similar to her ’90s star-making hits like Out of Sight and Selena, we’re taking a whole u-turn on her career as we rank all Jennifer Lopez movies by Tomatometer!
