Our Top Ben Stiller Movies

1. The Meyerowitz Stories (2017)

The Meyerowitz Stories is about an extended family who is about to reunite to join in a retrospective of prickly artist father Harold (Dustin Hoffman).

The eccentric family is composed of Maureen (Emma Thompson), Harold’s absent-minded fourth wife with a drinking habit, and three adult siblings all born from different unions: Danny (Adam Sandler), Matthew (B. Stiller) and Jean (Elizabeth Marvel).

Under the excellent director Noah Baumbach, family dynamics will soon emerge with all the frustrations and resentments.

The Meyerowitz Stories was critically acclaimed and received a four-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film festival.

Stiller and Dustin Hoffman have also worked together in Meet The Fockers and Little Fockers.

2. There’s Something About Mary (1998)

IMDb rating: 7.5/10

3. Greenberg (2010)

This dramedy starring Ben Stiller as Roger Greenberg, a former musician who returns to Los Angeles after some time away in New York.

He lives out of a van, plays the guitar, and has a penchant for smoking weed while listening to Bob Dylan. On his road trip back to L.A., he meets Florence (Greta Gerwig) at a party and immediately takes a liking to her.

Even though Greenberg is not the most likeable character by any stretch of the imagination, you get swept up by his story thanks to B. Stiller’s excellent performance.

IMDb rating: 6.1/10

4. Zoolander (2001)

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson in Zoolander

This hilarious satire follows Derek Zoolander (B. Stiller), a male cat-walk model, and his friend/colleague Hansel (Owen Wilson), as they get involved with a fashion mogul’s plot to overthrow the Malaysian government.

The film features many celebrity cameos, including David Bowie, Donald Trump, and even Mick Jagger!

This is one of those wacky films, it’s almost brilliant, and its popularity on Netflix makes it a must-watch for every comedy fan.

Jerry Stiller, Ben’s father, plays the part of Maury Ballstein, while Anne Meara, Stiller’s mother, plays the part of a protester.

IMDb rating: 6.5/10

5. Dodgeball (2004)

This is the film that most people associate with Ben Stiller simply because it was such an immediate box office hit when it was released back in 2004.

Ben Stiller stars as White Goodman, the owner of the mega Globo Gym.

Average Joe’s Gym, just across the road from Globo Gym, is in financial straits due to the small number of misfit members.

When Average Joe’s Gym skips a mortgage payment, Globo Gym steps in to buy Average Joe’s, the project being to turn it into a parking lot for his gym. To raise money and save the gym from demolition, one of the members suggests they participate in a dodgeball tournament with a high stake prize.

Of course, when word gets out to White Goodman, he signs up for it as well.

A very entertaining comedy, full of good hearty laughs.

IMDb rating: 6.7/10

6. Tropic Thunder (2008)

Ben Stiller in Tropic Thunder

This is an action-comedy movie written, starring, and directed by Ben Stiller.

The movie is about a group of actors filming a war movie when their set comes under real fire in the middle of the jungle. To make things worse, Tugg Speedman (B. Stiller) has taken it upon himself to sacrifice his life to save everyone else on set.

Unfortunately for him, he gets high beforehand and ends up getting stuck in a tree. It goes without saying that this isn’t one of the best B. Stiller films simply because its humour is so crude, but it’s still worth checking out if you haven’t already seen it.

IMDb rating: 7.0/10

7. Night At The Museum (2006)

This family movie follows Larry Daley (B. Stiller), a man with an unstable work history who manages to get a job working as a security guard at the Natural History Museum in New York City to keep seeing his son after his divorce.

During his first night on the job, he discovers that the exhibits come to life. Of course, nothing can possibly go wrong with this scenario, can it?
