With a sequel to filmmaker Judd Apatow’s 2012 comedy This Is 40 purportedly in the works (according to Collider), now is an excellent moment to review star Paul Rudd’s filmography. Rudd will reprise his role as Pete from the 2007 picture Knocked Up, which he co-starred in alongside Leslie Mann.

Paul Rudd has appeared in almost 90 films in his 30 years as an actor. Naturally, some of these films are superior to others, so let us rank Rudd’s best work.
