All Anna Kendrick Movies Ranked

Anna Kendrick’s first film was 2003’s Camp, a musical set at a camp for performing artists in upstate New York, a fitting extension of Kendrick’s childhood start in theater around her birthplace of Portland, Maine. The first of many Certified Fresh awards came with her next movie, Rocket Science; being cast as Jessica in the Twilight franchise meant Kendrick would have a high-profile job waiting for her for years to come.

Her career would soon become defined by steady versatility, appearing in a wide range of films like End of Watch, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and Cake. Kendrick is particularly adept in comedy hybrids, as seen in in The Voices, A Simple Favor, 50/50, and Up in the Air, the last of which garnered her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nom. Meanwhile, she’s been one of the 2010s most reliable musical stars – just look at Into the WoodsTrolls and, of course, the Pitch Perfect series.

And in our brave new world of 2020, Kendrick reprised her Trolls role for World Tour. And she also has a sci-fi drama in the works called Stowaway, co-starring Toni Colette and Daniel Dae Kim. But before she takes us into the future, we’re taking a look back with the best Anna Kendrick movies (and the worst) by Tomatometer!

#37

Get a Job (2016)
5%

#37
Adjusted Score: 4.7%
Critics Consensus: Inauthentic and unfunny, Get a Job is paltry to the point that its long-delayed release feels purely the result of its wasted cast having been promoted to greater fame all these years later.
Synopsis: Miles Teller, Anna Kendrick, and Bryan Cranston star in this wickedly funny comedy about making it in the real world.... [More]
Directed By: Dylan Kidd, Brian Kohne

#35
Adjusted Score: 27.683%
Critics Consensus: The cast is stocked with likable performers, but What to Expect When You're Expecting is too disjointed -- and too reliant on stock rom-com cliches -- to live up to its distinguished literary namesake.

Directed By: Bill Condon

#32

Table 19 (2017)
25%

#32
Adjusted Score: 29.382%
Critics Consensus: Table 19 is marginally more entertaining than actually sitting with a table full of strangers at a wedding -- although most screenings won't come with an open bar, which makes it a wash.

Directed By: Jeffrey Blitz
