7 Good Paul Rudd Films


I still can’t help but think of Paul Rudd as Mike from Friends, but he certainly has come a very long way over the past twenty years. He certainly seems to be one of the most popular actors to take on the comedy genre and even taken that across to become a Superhero as well, a tiny little ant. Each role he makes his own and I am finding myself becoming more of a fan with each film I watch him in!




A brilliant addition to the Marvel Universe and Rudd really nails everything about his character. Even with his small appearance in Captain America: Civil War. Really looking forward to where this goes next.

They Came Together


A hilarious rom-com that totally rips apart all other rom-coms. Some of it is massively inappropriate but it is also hilarious at times Rudd and Poehler are brilliant together, would love to see them in a “real” rom-com together.

How Do You Know


Stepping up his star power to be in a film alongside Reese Witherspoon and Jack Nicholson (oh and Owen Wilson) even if it was a little weak I think it certainly shows how well his career was starting to move along.

This is 40 


Another of those comedy films that I thought would be pointless watching and not funny. It is well worth watching and absolutely hilarious to see Rudd struggling to deal with being an adult and father, total life crisis going on it this one.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower


Incredible as the inspiring teacher!

Role Models


Honestly one of the funniest films ever made. Yes I am really saying that it is something else in humour levels this one!

Knocked Up


Seth Rogan is my guilty comedy pleasure and works so well with Rudd!

  1. Clueless, Ant Man, and you left off Anchor Man! I haven’t seen Anchor Man 2, and must confess, have never watched Friends-was too busy with babies and toddlers and preschoolers in my house to watch it. Was the Mike character, where Rudd got his start?

    • I think it was more his launch into comedy in all honesty. That was the first thing I’d really seen him in (other than Romeo + Juliet, but his character wasn’t that memorable in that)

  2. There are so many great movies he has been in! I also like him in I Love You, Man, and his supporting roles in Anchorman and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. But I like how you put his performance in The Perks of Being a Wallflower on there cause I thought he was really good and it was a different role than he was accustomed to playing.

    • Yeah a totally different approach in Wallflower which was great to see, something different from him. He’s nailed the comedy roles and I really think one of the best going with that genre at the moment.

    • So pleased that you totally see him as Mike from Friends still as well! I think I started watching it once, but not all of it. So will have to find it again and give it a rewatch!
