This list of the best Jack Black movies is ranked best to worst and includes movie trailers when available. The role of Barry in High Fidelity, which is considered one of Jack Black's breakout roles, was written specifically for the Tenacious D musician as John Cusack and his fellow screenwriters were a fan of Black's music and humor. Jack Black's highest grossing movies have received a lot of accolades over the years, earning millions upon millions around the world. The order of these top Jack Black movies is decided by how many votes they receive, so only highly rated Jack Black movies will be at the top of the list. 

This list answers the questions, "What are the best Jack Black movies?" and "What are the greatest Jack Black roles of all time?" The greatest Jack Black performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases they go hand in hand. Famous flicks like School of Rock and Tropic Thunder appear on this Jack Black filmography, as well as Black's old, new and forgotten movies (he even appeared in Waterworld!) If you think the best Jack Black role isn't at the top, then upvote it so it has the chance to become first in the rankings.

If you are a fan of actors who rock, you might also enjoy our list of best Michael Cera movies and best Ben Stiller movies.
