Sweeney’s most popular film has to be Anyone But You, the romantic comedy that surprised everyone with its stellar box office performance and maybe single-handedly revived the hope for success of rom-com films in theatrical release. While Anyone But You is ranked pretty low on this list, because it wasn’t a great film by critics’ standards but if you just want to have some fun and look at two gorgeous people who fall in love then this one is perfect for you.

Directed by Will Gluck from a screenplay by Gluck and Ilana Wolpert, the 2023 film is loosely based on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and it follows the story of two rivals who once had feelings for each other. Now they meet once again at a wedding in Australia, which forces them to spend some time together and maybe realize that they still have feelings for each other. Anyone But You also stars Glenn Powell, Alexandra Shipp, Dermot Mulroney, Charlee Fraser, Darren Barnet, and Hadley Robinson.

8. Big Time Adolescence (Hulu)

7. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (Hulu & Rent on Prime Video)

Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is his love letter to 1969 Hollywood and what a brilliant love letter it is. The film is stacked with one-for-one A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie. But the film also stars some of the best up-and-coming actors of the time in small roles such as Austin Butler, Sydney Sweeney, Damon Herriman, Victoria Pedretti, and Maya Hawke.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood follows an actor named Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stunt man Cliff Booth (Pitt) as they go through the highs and lows of working in the industry at the time and the story of the film beautifully and violently intertwines with the story of the real actress Sharon Stone and the Mansion family.

6. Everything Sucks! (Netflix)
