10 Best Jennifer Aniston Movies That You Must See

Jennifer Aniston, everyone’s girl-next-door. The actress most of us grew up watching on one of our favourite sitcoms –  ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S.’ She has undoubtedly gone on to have the most success as compared to the other major cast members on the show. Aniston is one of the biggest names in Hollywood today and has featured in a large number of films. But despite being a star that she is, not many people think she is great actress. Well, we list down 10 of her best movies that prove otherwise.

 

10. Friends with Money (2006)

Aniston shines in this average movie. ‘Friends with Money’ is a rather comedic take on mid life and the problems people in their 40s often experience. The plot is highly relatable and the film also stars Catherine Keener who also puts in a strong performance. This completely dialogue driven movie, and therefore falls completely in Aniston’s acting zone. She doesn’t disappoint.

 

9. Horrible Bosses (2011)

Pretty much a textbook lesson on how to make a first rate comedy. Aniston plays a role which you would say is slightly out of her norm, as a sexually crazed dentist who harasses her employees. Three average Joes, played by Jason Bateman, Charlie Day (Yes, from It’s always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Jason Sudeikis conspire to murder their bosses in a manner reminiscent and almost a parody of Hitchcock’s ‘Strangers on a Train’. There are definitely some elements of dark humour thrown into the mix. ‘Horrible Bosses’ will have you rolling down the aisles with laughter.

 

8. He’s Just Not That Into You (2009)

For a movie packed with so many star names that you almost lose count, Aniston does really well to stand out. This film is a decent romantic comedy which does enough to be distanced from being labelled a “chick flick”. (However, it is a perfect “date movie”, so please take note guys.) Ben Affleck, Scarlett Johansson, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Connelly are part of the all-star ensemble this film boasts.

 

7. Bruce Almighty (2003)

When Jim Carrey and Jennifer Aniston combine on-screen, you know you are in for a delight. Throw in Morgan Freeman playing ‘God’ and you have a comedy of almighty proportions. What would you do if you had the power of God? The film bases itself on this rather fascinating premise. The chemistry between Carrey and Aniston makes this an interesting watch. 

 

6.We’re  the Millers (2013)

It’s really remarkable how a 44 year old actress can pull of the role of a seductive stripper so convincingly. Aniston is at her comedic best in this rollercoaster of laughs which also stars Julia Roberts’ niece, Emma. While the plot of the movie may be regarded by some as completely cliché, the film achieves what it sets out to do, make you laugh and give you a fun ride. The filmmakers would definitely not have had any ragrets after making the movie.
