All Jennifer Lopez Movies Ranked

Before 2019’s 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 joining the ranks of her other 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!


Gigli (2003)

Adjusted Score: 11.268%

Directed By: Martin Brest

Adjusted Score: 16.799%

Directed By: Rob Cohen

Adjusted Score: 20.047%
Critics Consensus: Instead of being light and charming, this romantic comedy is heavy-handed and contrived in its execution. Also, it's too unoriginal.
Synopsis: This lighthearted romantic comedy in the tradition of Runaway Bride (1999) casts Jennifer Lopez in the Julia Roberts mold. Lopez... [More]
Directed By: Adam Shankman


Jack (1996)

Adjusted Score: 19.289%
Critics Consensus: Robin Williams' childlike energy is channeled in all the wrong places with Jack, a bizarre tragedy that aims for uplift but sinks deep into queasy schmaltz.
Synopsis: Jack is a boy who is growing normally, but at four times the normal rate. Kept out of school for... [More]
Directed By: Francis Ford Coppola

Adjusted Score: 22.047%
Critics Consensus: Unoriginal and unfunny, Ice Age: Collision Course offers further proof that not even the healthiest box office receipts can keep a franchise from slouching toward creative extinction.
Synopsis: Scrat's epic pursuit of the elusive acorn catapults him into the universe where he accidentally sets off a series of... [More]
Directed By: Mike Thurmeier


The Back-up Plan (2010)

Adjusted Score: 22.074%

Directed By: Alan Poul


Monster-in-Law (2005)

Adjusted Score: 23.548%

Directed By: Robert Luketic


Money Train (1995)

Adjusted Score: 23.445%
Critics Consensus: Loud, incoherent, and aimless, Money Train reunites Snipes and Harrelson -- and proves that starring duos are far from immune to the law of diminishing returns.
Synopsis: Actors Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes team up for the third time in this actioner that has them playing brothers... [More]
Directed By: Joseph Ruben


Enough (2002)

Adjusted Score: 25.156%
Critics Consensus: Enough exploits the serious issue of spousal abuse to make an illogical, unintelligent thriller.
Synopsis: Working class waitress Slim finds her life transformed when she marries wealthy contractor Mitch. She settles into an idyllic suburban... [More]

Adjusted Score: 27.684%
Critics Consensus: The cast is stocked with likable performers, but What to Expect When You're Expecting is too disjointed -- and too reliant on stock rom-com cliches -- to live up to its distinguished literary namesake.
Synopsis: Over the moon about starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules and dance show star Evan find that their high-octane... [More]
Directed By: Kirk Jones


El Cantante (2007)

Adjusted Score: 28.09%
Critics Consensus: El Cantante adheres to the most basic conventions of the musical biopic, rendering it indistinguishable from others of its ilk.
Synopsis: "El Cantante" is the dramatic-biography of Puerto Rican salsa pioneer Hector Lavoe. The film follows Lavoe's passionate relationship with Puchi... [More]
Directed By: Leon Ichaso


Angel Eyes (2001)

Adjusted Score: 37.088%
Critics Consensus: Though the earlier part of the movie suggested something more, the movie turns out to be nothing more than a schmaltzy romance.
Synopsis: Jennifer Lopez stars in this gritty, emotional drama as police officer Sharon Pogue, who covers up a painful past with... [More]
Directed By: Luis Mandoki

Adjusted Score: 41.642%
Critics Consensus: Ice Age: Continental Drift 3D has moments of charm and witty slapstick, but it often seems content to recycle ideas from the previous films.
Synopsis: Scrat's nutty pursuit of the cursed acorn, which he's been after since the dawn of time, has world-changing consequences -... [More]


Anaconda (1997)

Adjusted Score: 40.728%
Critics Consensus: Anaconda's pulpy pleasures are constricted by its own absurdity, but creature feature fans may enjoy its brazen silliness.
Synopsis: A documentary film crew journeys to the depths of the Amazon in search of the mysterious Shirishama Indians, and ends... [More]
Directed By: Luis Llosa

Adjusted Score: 42.02%
Critics Consensus: Too blandly generic, Maid in Manhattan also suffers from a lack of chemistry between Lopez and Fiennes.

Directed By: Wayne Wang


Lila & Eve (2015)

Adjusted Score: 40.693%
Critics Consensus: Lila & Eve gets some mileage out of its formidable stars, with Viola Davis in particular proving that she will commandingly commit to any material, but this is a revenge flick served stale due to a lackluster script.
Synopsis: A tense and exciting film, LILA AND EVE is directed by Charles Stone III (DRUMLINE), and tells the story of... [More]
Directed By: Charles Stone III


Parker (2013)

Adjusted Score: 43.715%
Critics Consensus: Jason Statham is game as usual, but Parker is a thoroughly generic and convoluted heist movie.
Synopsis: Set amidst the unparalleled wealth and glamor of Palm Beach, Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez team up to get their... [More]
Directed By: Taylor Hackford


Jersey Girl (2004)

Adjusted Score: 46.841%

Directed By: Kevin Smith


Second Act (2018)

Adjusted Score: 48.1%
Critics Consensus: Second Act proves Jennifer Lopez remains as magnetic as ever on the big screen; unfortunately, the movie's muddled story isn't always worthy of her gifts.
Synopsis: Second Act is a comedy in the vein of Working Girl and Maid In Manhattan. Jennifer Lopez stars as Maya,... [More]
Directed By: Peter Segal


The Cell (2000)

Adjusted Score: 50.876%
Critics Consensus: The Cell offers disturbing, stunning eye candy, but its visual pleasures are no match for a confused storyline that undermines the movie's inventive aesthetic.

Directed By: Tarsem Singh


Shall We Dance (2004)

Adjusted Score: 51.214%
Critics Consensus: The cast is warmly appealing, but with the loss of cultural context and addition of big-name celebrities, this American version loses the nuances of the original.
Synopsis: Directed by Peter Chelsom, this film is the English-language remake of Masayuki Suo's 1995 romantic comedy of the same name;... [More]
Directed By: Peter Chelsom


Home (2015)

Adjusted Score: 55.799%
Critics Consensus: Colorful, silly, and utterly benign, Home is a passable diversion, but there's no shortage of superior animated alternatives.
Synopsis: When Oh, a loveable misfit from another planet, lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own... [More]
Directed By: Tim Johnson

Adjusted Score: 56.47%
Critics Consensus: A story of disjointed family members yearning for true emotional depth, An Unfinished Life teeters between overtly saccharine sentiments and moments of real intimacy.

Directed By: Lasse Hallstrom

U-Turn (1997)

Adjusted Score: 63.656%

Synopsis: Oliver Stone takes a breather from politics with this violent and frequently very funny black comedy about a gambler whose... [More]
Directed By: Oliver Stone


Selena (1997)

Adjusted Score: 67.441%
Critics Consensus: Selena occasionally struggles to tell its subject's story with depth or perspective, but those flaws are rendered largely irrelevant by Jennifer Lopez in the title role.

Directed By: Gregory Nava


Hustlers (2019)

Adjusted Score: 101.95%

Directed By: Lorene Scafaria


Antz (1998)

Directed By: Eric Darnell, Tim Johnson


Out of Sight (1998)

Adjusted Score: 97.793%

Directed By: Steven Soderbergh
