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.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Only Murders in the Building's silly approach to true crime obsessives is at once hilarious and insightful, thanks in large part to its extremely charming central trio.

30 Rock: Season 1 (2006)
84%

#9

94%

#10
Adjusted Score: -1%

30 Rock: Season 6 (2012)
75%

#11
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: 30 Rock feels content to spin its zany wheels in a sixth season that is nevertheless punctuated with great gags and an infectious sense of fun.

#12

Megamind (2010)
72%

#12
Adjusted Score: 78179%
Critics Consensus: It regurgitates plot points from earlier animated efforts, and isn't quite as funny as it should be, but a top-shelf voice cast and strong visuals help make Megamind a pleasant, if unspectacular, diversion.
Synopsis: Though he is the most-brilliant supervillain the world has known, Megamind (Will Ferrell) is the least-successful. Thwarted time and again... [More]
Directed By: Tom McGrath

30 Rock: Season 4 (2009)
72%

#13
Adjusted Score: -1%

#14
#14
Adjusted Score: 80479%
Critics Consensus: While WTF is far from FUBAR, Tina Fey and Martin Freeman are just barely enough to overcome the picture's glib predictability and limited worldview.

Directed By: Glenn Ficarra, John Requa

#15

Date Night (2010)
66%

#15
Adjusted Score: 75426%
Critics Consensus: An uneasy blend of action and comedy, Date Night doesn't quite live up to the talents of its two leads, but Steve Carell and Tina Fey still manage to shine through most of the movie's flaws.
Synopsis: Dragged down by the daily grind, suburbanites Phil (Steve Carell) and Claire (Tina Fey) try to invigorate their marriage by... [More]
Directed By: Shawn Levy

#16

Wine Country (2019)
66%

#16
Adjusted Score: 70692%
Critics Consensus: Wine Country's comedy might not be quite as robust as fans of this ensemble will expect, but it's got sweetness on the nose and a nicely balanced finish.

Directed By: Amy Poehler

#17

Baby Mama (2008)
63%

Directed By: Michael McCullers

#18

Sisters (2015)
60%

#18

Directed By: Jason Moore

#19
#19
Adjusted Score: 62925%
Critics Consensus: It doesn't quite follow through on its promise, and relies too heavily on shopworn romantic comedy tropes, but The Invention of Lying is uncommonly sly and funny.

#20
#20
Adjusted Score: 50199%

Directed By: Shawn Levy

#21

Admission (2013)
39%

#21
Adjusted Score: 44326%
Critics Consensus: Admission has a pair of immensely likable leads in Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, but it wastes them on a contrived (and clumsily directed) screenplay.
Synopsis: When straight-laced Princeton University admissions officer Portia Nathan (Tina Fey) pays a recruiting visit to an alternative high school, she... [More]
Directed By: Paul Weitz
