Jennifer Lopez through the years
The last time Jennifer Lopez headlined a major theatrical release was 2010’s The Back-Up Plan. That’s like a century of downtime in Hollywood Years.

Leave it to Jason Statham and his permanent five-o’clock shadow to lure J.Lo back to the big screen in the new action thriller, Parker. To celebrate the former Fly Girl’s return to theaters, Celebuzz gets all retrospective-y by rounding up her six best film performances.

From Selena to Monster-in-Law, from dramas to (gasp) Gigli, Lopez has done it all. Her film career, which is quickly coming up on the 2o-year mark, boasts several box office hits and an impressive collection of truly impressive – if somewhat underrated – dramatic roles.

There is no genre Lopez hasn’t tackled, which made our rank and filing efforts that much harder. So which performances made the cut? Check out the gallery to find out.
