This list of the best Ryan Reynolds movies is ranked best to worst and includes movie trailers when available. Ryan Reynolds got his start in TV series like Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place and The Odyssey, but soon enough he was starring in feature films. Ryan Reynolds' highest-grossing movies have received a lot of accolades over the years, earning millions upon millions around the world. The order of these top Ryan Reynolds movies is decided by how many votes they receive, so only highly-rated Ryan Reynolds movies will be at the top of the list.

This list answers the questions, "What are the best Ryan Reynolds movies?" and "What are the greatest Ryan Reynolds roles of all time?" The greatest Ryan Reynolds performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases they go hand in hand. This Ryan Reynolds filmography includes popular flicks like The Proposal, X-Men, and The Change-Up, but it's up to you to decide the best of the best.  If you think the coolest Ryan Reynolds role isn't at the top, then upvote it so it has the chance to become number one. 

If you are a fan of Reynolds' humor (if you only know his action films, take it from us, he's super funny in his comedies!) you might also enjoy some intersting facts about him.
