All Justin Timberlake Movies Ranked

Cause for alarm: Justin Timberlake has only been in a few Certified Fresh movies in his career, projects that have really hit with critics – we hope he has a second job to fall back on.

For now, Timberlake will just have to be content with the fact he’s been in some of the really good flicks of the 2010s, like David Fincher’s Best Picture nominee The Social Network, or the Coen brothers’ wry and sly take on the folk music, Inside Llewyn Davis. And no one can blame Timberlake for not being careful in cultivating his movie brand, making a few sex comedies (The Love Guru, Friends With Benefits), throwing in a few sci-fi risks (Southland Tales, In Time), and sweetening the stew with family movies (Yogi Bear, Shrek the Third).

Timberlake’s latest film, his first in three years, certainly falls in that last category: Trolls World Tour, which took the extraordinary step of skipping theatrical and going straight to on-demand. With the movie added to this list, we’re sync as we look back on all Justin Timberlake movies ranked by Tomatometer!


Runner Runner (2013)

Adjusted Score: 11.223%
Critics Consensus: It has an impressive cast and an intriguing premise, but Runner Runner wastes them on a bland, haphazardly assembled thriller with very little payoff.

Yogi Bear (2010)

Adjusted Score: 14.63%
Critics Consensus: Yogi Bear's 3D effects and all-star voice cast are cold comfort for its aggressively mediocre screenplay.

Directed By: Eric Brevig


The Love Guru (2008)

Adjusted Score: 20.55%
Critics Consensus: The Love Guru features far too many gross-out gags, and too few earned laughs, ranking as one of Mike Myers' poorest outings.

Directed By: Marco Schnabel

Directed By: Michael Meredith


Wonder Wheel (2017)

Adjusted Score: 40.141%
Critics Consensus: Wonder Wheel gathers a charming cast in an inviting period setting, but they aren't enough to consistently breathe life into a Woody Allen project that never quite comes together.
Synopsis: WONDER WHEEL tells the story of four characters whose lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of the Coney Island... [More]
Directed By: Woody Allen


In Time (2011)

Adjusted Score: 41.196%
Critics Consensus: In Time's intriguing premise and appealing cast are easily overpowered by the blunt, heavy-handed storytelling.
Synopsis: When Will Salas is falsely accused of murder, he must figure out a way to bring down a system where... [More]
Directed By: Andrew Niccol


Southland Tales (2007)

Adjusted Score: 41.906%
Critics Consensus: Southland Tales, while offering an intriguing vision of the future, remains frustratingly incoherent and unpolished.

Directed By: Richard Kelly


Shrek the Third (2007)

Adjusted Score: 49.194%
Critics Consensus: Shrek the Third has pop culture potshots galore, but at the expense of the heart, charm, and wit that made the first two Shreks classics.

Directed By: Chris Miller, Raman Hui


Bad Teacher (2011)

Adjusted Score: 50.841%
Critics Consensus: In spite of a promising concept and a charmingly brazen performance from Cameron Diaz, Bad Teacher is never as funny as it should be.
Synopsis: Some teachers just don't give an F. For example, there's Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz). She's foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate. She drinks,... [More]
Directed By: Jake Kasdan

Adjusted Score: 58.52%

Directed By: Robert Lorenz


Alpha Dog (2007)

Adjusted Score: 58.514%

Directed By: Nick Cassavetes


Black Snake Moan (2007)

Directed By: Craig Brewer

Adjusted Score: 73.089%
Critics Consensus: Friends with Benefits adds nothing new to its well-worn rom-com formula, but the chemistry between Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis is almost enough to carry the movie by itself.

Directed By: Will Gluck

Adjusted Score: 76.624%
