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!

#16

13%

#16
Adjusted Score: 15671%

#13

Wonder Wheel (2017)
32%

#13
Adjusted Score: 46308%
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.

Directed By: Woody Allen

#12

In Time (2011)
37%

Southland Tales (2006)
41%

Directed By: Richard Kelly

#10

Shrek the Third (2007)
41%

Directed By: Chris Miller

#9

Directed By: Robert Lorenz

#7

Alpha Dog (2006)
54%

Directed By: Craig Brewer

#5
#5
Adjusted Score: 74782%

Directed By: Will Gluck

#3

Trolls (2016)
