Tina Fey Movies and Shows Ranked

We’re ranking the films and shows of Tina Fey. We start with her Certified Fresh works, including the oft-quoted 30 Rock, which saw the Saturday Night Live alum stay within the NBC wheelhouse, along with high school classic Mean Girls and Disney’s Muppets revival sequel Most Wanted. Fey’s Fresh films include Date Night, the rom-com that felt all but inevitable with the other titan of quirky and awkward comedy Steve Carrell, and two movies with Amy Poehler, Baby Mama and Sisters.

#12

Admission (2013)
