The 10 Best Mark Wahlberg Movies, Ranked


8. I Heart Huckabees (2004)

Admittedly, I Heart Huckabees isn’t everyone’s deal. It’s sometimes seen as too twee, too cutesy, too beholden to the quirky indie movie cliches of the early ’00s. That’s understandable, to a certain respect, but that’s also overlooking how smartly it’s executed, how stylish it can be, and how much it’s elevated by its all-star ensemble, which includes Dustin Hoffman, Lily Tomlin, Jude Law, Naomi Watts, Jason Schwartzman, Isabelle Huppert, and Mark Wahlberg. In their second collaboration together, Wahlberg turns in one of his funniest performances to date as Tommy Corn, a firefighter with an acute outlook on life. Made to seem like a ’30s screwball comedy under the formal stylings of movies from two decades prior, it might be seen as pretentious and too cutesy. However, if you like this sort of off-beat, off-kilter high-minded comedy, there is a lot to like — notably from Wahlberg’s supporting role.
