Mila Kunis has an extensive filmography, and many of her best movies are available to stream.

Although she’s mostly known for her comedic chops, Kunis can bring the heat in more dramatic roles as well. Some of her best work combines the two.

Let’s look at the top 10 movies Kunis stars in that are streaming now.

A Bad Moms Christmas (Showtime)


Although not as well-received as its predecessor (more on that in a bit), A Bad Moms Christmas is perfect for the holiday season.

Mila Kunis returns as Amy Mitchell, and has plenty of hilarious supporting mothers to play off of. Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn are back again, and they always bring the laughs.

Bad Moms (FXNOW)

On a budget of only $22 million, Bad Moms grossed over $183 million at the box office. That speaks to the draw Kunis can have, and how well she does in the film.

In this original, Kunis’ Amy has had it with comparing herself to other moms and trying to be perfect. She lets loose, flaws and all, and despite some zany comedic situations, there’s a genuine weight to Bad Moms.


It’s a surprisingly heartfelt hit, and if you haven’t seen it yet, definitely give it a shot. In addition to sequel returnees Bell and Hahn, Jay Hernandez, Christina Applegate and Jada Pinkett Smith all shine in supporting roles.

Black Swan (HBO Now)

There’s nothing funny about this one. Director Darren Aronofsky helped Kunis score a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

Kunis plays Lily, a dancer who joins a New York City ballet company and becomes an adversary to Natalie Portman’s Nina. Their dramatically tense competition for a lead role is at the heart of the story.

This is a trippy, dark and at times, a disturbing viewing experience. However, it’s also thrilling, engrossing and ultimately rewarding to watch. It might be Mila Kunis’ best performance to date to boot.

The Book of Eli (Netflix)

Denzel Washington takes center stage here, as does Gary Oldman. The two Best Actor Oscar winners help elevate a story that features an epic twist, but Kunis does well with what she has, too.

The mashup of post-apocalytpic thriller in the style of a Western makes The Book of Eli compelling in and of itself. Kunis plays Solara, the daughter of Oldman’s character Carnegie, and she tags along with Eli (Washington).

It’s a cat-and-mouse type of hot pursuit, and the stakes couldn’t be higher. Ignore the mixed critical receptionThe Book of Eli is badass.

Extract (Hoopla)

Writer-director Mike Judge is excellent at crafting comedies. This is one of his most underrated creations, and features an all-star cast of Kunis, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Ben Affleck and J.K. Simmons.

In the case of Kunis’ character, she plays a con artist who upends an extract factory run by Bateman’s Joel Reynolds. She’s seductive, manipulative and downright villainous.

It’s worth going into Extract not knowing any spoilers beyond that.

Friends with Benefits (Starz)

The title is pretty self-explanatory: Kunis co-stars with Justin Timberlake, and they try to carry on a normal, platonic friendship despite getting intimate with each other.

You can imagine how that might turn out. In any event, the two leads have great chemistry, and it’s ultimately a hopeful, crowd-pleasing movie about navigating a difficult dating world.

Jupiter Ascending (Netflix)

Oh lordy. The Wachowskis haven’t quite been able to live up to the impossible expectations set by their masterpiece, The Matrix. However, Jupiter Ascending is full of high-concept science fiction and exciting ideas.

Kunis is the central protagonist who’s living an ordinary life before being thrust into extraordinary, intergalactic circumstances. Best Actor Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne hams it up as a villain, and it’s kind of hilarious to watch just from that standpoint.

Jupiter Ascending botches its execution in multiple spots. Still, Kunis makes it all watchable as she tags along with half-canine, half-human Channing Tatum.

Max Payne (Starz)

Be patient: Kunis’ other, far more successful collaboration with Mark Wahlberg makes the cut on this list later on.

Max Payne is admittedly not the greatest movie ever made, yet there are some exceptional action sequences that are worth beholding. The neo-noir elements and cinematography are really fun, and the film actually turned a box-office profit despite being critically panned.

Kunis is a Russian assassin named Mona Sax and has some epic moments. It’s definitely a different side of her than we’re used to seeing.

The Spy Who Dumped Me (Amazon Prime Video & Hulu)

This funny, subversive take on the spy thriller genre sees Kunis and co-star Kate McKinnon thrust into an international conspiracy.

Kunis plays Audrey, whose ex-boyfriend is on the run from assassins. But more importantly, pairing two actors as gifted in comedy as Kunis and McKinnon make this romp well worth the watch.

Ted (FXNOW)

This Seth MacFarlane creation stars Kunis and Wahlberg as a couple whose relationship is strained by a living, talking teddy bear named Ted.

Fans of MacFarlane’s off-the-wall, irreverent and tangential comedy will love this film. Ted did well at the box office and with critics, so check it out while you can.

BONUS: Family Guy (Hulu)

There’s no getting around the fact that some of Mila Kunis’ most memorable credits come from her TV career. Her voice work in Family Guy renders her almost unrecognizable due to a hilarious accent.

Family Guy is one of the funniest and longest-running TV shows ever made. The collaboration between Kunis and MacFarlane ultimately helped elevate Ted to unforeseen heights.

BONUS: That ’70s Show (Netflix)

The series that launched Kunis’ career is definitely this Fox classic. This sitcom co-stars Ashton Kutcher, Topher Grace and Wilmer Valderrama, among others.

If you’ve never seen That ’70s Show, it’s worth your time to at least give it a chance. Any given episode is comedic gold, and there’s a reason Kunis used it as a springboard to more prominent Hollywood roles.
