List RulesVote for what you think are the best Jennifer Lopez movies.

These are the best Jennifer Lopez movies of all time, ranked best to worst by fans of her movies and music. This filmography includes movie trailers when available, so you can get a sneak preview of a film if you haven't seen it before. Jennifer Lopez (commonly called J-Lo) was a Fly Girl on In Living Color before her breakout role in her first movie, the 1997 film Selena, made her a star.

The best Jennifer Lopez movies of all time prove that she is one of the top actresses currently working. Along with being an accomplished singer, Lopez has appeared in plenty of blockbusters and critically-acclaimed movies, earning awards and accolades along the way. JLo's highest grossing movies have been well-received at the box office and his lifetime box office total exceeds $1.2 billion.

If you've ever wondered what are the best Jennifer Lopez movies or what are her greatest roles, then this ranked J-Lo filmography is for you. Her greatest performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases they go hand in hand.  This Jennifer Lopez filmography includes famous movies like Monster-in-Law, Enough, The Cell, and Maid in Manhattan, but it's up to fans like you to decide upon the best. If you think the best Jennifer Lopez role isn't at the top, then upvote it so it has the chance to become number one.

If you are a fan of singers who also act, you might enjoy our list of best Madonna movies and best Selena Gomez movies.
