All Steve Carell Movies Ranked from 40-Year-Old Virgin to Anchorman
1 of 32
32. Curly Sue
Steve Carell’s first film appearance was in this John Hughes disaster, released the year after he wrote and produced Home Alone. Our man Carell briefly appears as the obedient waiter Tesio.
2 of 32
31. Dinner For Schmucks
Not even an A-list comedy cast—with Carell as the doofus Barry—could save what is an inherently horrible script.
3 of 32
30. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
Though the idea of Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi as struggling magicians sounds like a perfect recipe for comedy, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone failed on almost every level.
4 of 32
While the movie itself is your basic teen comedy, Carell is actually pretty damn funny as a mustachioed security guard (doing the Paul Blart thing better than Kevin James) in what is a pretty good precursor to his adult boy 40-Year-Old Virgin character.
5 of 32
28. Evan Almighty
It should at least be a testament to Carell’s unforgettable scene in Bruce Almighty that the film even got him his own starring role in a sequel.
6 of 32
27. Cafe Society
Just another Woody Allen movie, but this one has Steve Carell in it.
7 of 32
Carell plays Steven Goldstein in this film based on a documentary of the same name about Laurel Hester’s fight to get her pension benefits transferred to her partner after her death. While the film had its heart in the right place, its issues outweighed its message.
8 of 32
Another one of his brilliant supporting roles in the early 2000s, Carell channeling Paul Lynde in Bewitched is a bright moment in an otherwise forgetful big-screen reboot of the beloved ’60s television show.
9 of 32
24. Get Smart
Not even a very charming Carell as Maxwell Smart could save another doomed reboot of a ’60s TV show that no one asked for.
10 of 32
23. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
At the very least, this family Disney comedy offers some scenes starring Carell and Donald Glover.
11 of 32
22. Despicable Me 3
Carell pulls double-duty in the third entry in the popular and adorable Despicable Me franchise, playing Gru and his long lost twin brother Dru.
12 of 32
21. Dan in Real Life
Just as his career as a leading man began to take off, Carell plays a single dad fighting over a woman with his brother, unfortunately played by Dane Cook.
13 of 32
20. Date Night
Steve Carell and Tina Fey star as a couple whose dinner out goes bad when they get mistaken for a couple wanted by a dangerous mob. And, yes, they learn a thing or two about themselves along the way.
14 of 32
19. Beautiful Boy
Based on the complimentary memoirs of David and Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy stars Carell and Timothée Chalamet as a father and son who battle the son’s debilitating drug addiction in very different ways.
15 of 32
18. Despicable Me 2
The second entry in Carell’s Despicable Me series is also the highest-grossing film of his career.
16 of 32
17. Over the Hedge
Carell’s second-most popular animated film actually seems like a good metaphor for Trump’s America in 2018.
17 of 32
16. Hope Springs
Do you want to watch Steve Carell, Tommy Lee Jones, and Meryl Streep talk about sex? Hell yes you do.
18 of 32
15. Last Flag Flying
Carell teams up with Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne, and director Richard Linklater for this somber dramedy about three former Marines traveling to bury the body of a man killed in the Iraq War.
19 of 32
14. Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!
This animated adaptation of the children’s classic stars Carell as the perfect Mayor of Whoville. He’s played a father so many times, Carell might as well actually have 97 children.
20 of 32
13. The Way Way Back
In a refreshing twist on his regular nice guy dorky dad role, Steve Carell is the shitty boyfriend of Toni Collette’s Pam. He’s also surprisingly jacked in this film. Check out those biceps.
21 of 32
12. Knocked Up
Okay, this might be kind of high for a film in which Carell only has a brief cameo appearance as himself. But his awkward interview with Katherine Heigl has come to represent Carell’s entire persona from The Office and beyond. It’s also a nice nod to the Judd Apatow film that made him a superstar.
22 of 32
11. Despicable Me
By far, the most commercially successful Carell movie series (sorry Anchorman!), Despicable Me was a worldwide sensation, launching two sequels and a spin-off film.
23 of 32
10. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
What would you do when the complete destruction of earth is imminent? Would you keep working a dead end job or go on a road trip with Keira Knightley to find a lost high school sweetheart? If this scenario intrigues you, go ahead and watch this movie—but you’ve probably already guessed the ending.
24 of 32
9. Bruce Almighty
If we’re to pinpoint the exact moment where Carell became a star, it’s in his supporting appearance as Evan in Bruce Almighty. He didn’t have a big part, but Carell stole the show in his hilarious and unforgettable scene screaming gibberish during a news broadcast.
25 of 32
8. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
Carell reprises his role as the oft-quoted, lovable idiot Brick Tamland in this sequel to the Will Ferrell hit. It’s a film that somewhat shockingly rivals the original movie, dedicating more screen time to Carell’s fan-favorite character.
26 of 32
7. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
After his amazing performance in Bruce Almighty, Carell once again returns to behind the newscaster desk as Brick Tamland, the sweet, sweet dummy weatherman. This film is the perfect example of Carell’s work in his early days, making the most out of even the tiniest roles. Still today, “I love lamp,” remains one of the movie’s most quoted lines.
27 of 32
6. Battle of the Sexes
Thanks to Carell’s strong performance, he’s able to overcome his nice guy image to play the shameless misogynist Bobby Riggs. Carell even earned himself his second Golden Globe nomination for a film (after six consecutive years being nominated for the Office, winning once).
28 of 32
5. Crazy, Stupid, Love
What could have been a mindless rom-com is elevated to something far more memorable thanks in large part to the effortless charm of both Carell and Ryan Gosling. Though it adheres to basically every gender stereotype, Carell is in prime form as the most relatable version of the broken, recently divorced man.
29 of 32
4. The Big Short
Carell plays Mark Baum, based on Steve Eisman, who manages to profit off the collapse of the housing bubble in 2008. It’s a film that helped affirm Carell’s status as an actor whose award-caliber performances would become the norm.
30 of 32
Having dabbled in drama at points throughout his career, Foxcatcher marks Carell’s greatest transformation, becoming John Eleuthère du Pont, the notorious heir to the du Pont family fortune who helped recruit two Olympic gold medalists and was eventually convicted of the murder of one.
