This is a list of the best Hugh Grant movies, ranked best to worst - with movie trailers when available. Hugh Grant has been acting since 1982, but he didn't become a star until Four Weddings and a Funeral came out in 1994. And who can forget his chemistry with Renée  Zellweger in Bridget Jones' Diary.  Hugh Grant's highest grossing movies have received a lot of accolades over the years, earning millions upon millions around the world. The order of this Hugh Grant movies list is decided by how many votes each film receives, so only his most highly rated movies will be at the top of the list. 

This list answers the questions, "What are the best Hugh Grant movies?" and "What are the greatest Hugh Grant roles of all time?" The greatest Hugh Grant performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases they go hand in hand. Famous flicks like Love Actually and About a Boy are on this Hugh Grant filmography, but it's up to fans like you to decide upon the best. If you think the most worthy Hugh Grant role isn't at the top, then upvote it so it has the chance to become number one. 

If you are a fan of Grant's dry humor, you might also enjoy our list of best Colin Firth movies and best Emma Thompson movies.
