Pratt played a character named Jason in a sketch opposite his then-wife Anna Faris.
"Movie 43" has been described by the majority of its critics as a raunchy, exaggerated comedy that relied too heavily on gross gags.

In the romantic comedy, Pratt played Emma's fiancé Fletcher.
Critics were keen on "Bride Wars" calling it a lazy and signed comedy that turned out to be an impossible acting exercise for its leading actors.
"There is more joy in staring out at a bleak and desolate winter landscape in the twilight of a shortened day than paying good money to endure this example of cinematic innards," wrote James Berardinelli for Reel Views.

Pratt reappeared as Donald, one of Ally's exes, to Faris.
A flurry of reviews agreed that formulaic storytelling was just one of the film's many technical flaws.
"Lighting, camera work, and editing are all a slapdash mess that further prevents actors from doing their best to manage this failed comedy combination," Lisa Schwarzbaum wrote for Entertainment Weekly.

The majority of film critics felt that "Take Me Home Tonight" couldn't compete with similar films in the comedy genre.
"It's a lovable, but slow, piece of nostalgia: think 'Hot Tub Time Machine' meets 'Superbad' - without the big laugh," wrote Anna Smith for Time Out.

"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" shared critics and was received as an entertaining but largely overwhelming summer film.
"As awesome popcorn entertainment as Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is, well-made and funny, too much of it just stays that way, so predictable," wrote Jeff York for Creative Screenwriting.

Pratt played a popular student named Brason.
Critics revered Sedaris and Colbert in the lead roles but felt underserved by a mediocre conspiracy.
"Some things should be seen in small doses or on small screens," wrote Bruce Westbrook for the Houston Chronicle. "For all of its subversive virtues and quirks, 'Strangers' is one of them."

Many critics agreed that Jurassic World was a solid action film that was best enjoyed with low expectations.
"If you limit your expectations of Jurassic World to more teeth, it will deliver on that promise," wrote Christopher Orr for The Atlantic. "If you dare to hope for something more relatable, for narrative coherence, you will only expect disappointment."

Critics received "Wanted" as a strong, hyper-stylized action film that knew better about combat choreography than logical storytelling.
"Wanted is too bloody, too exaggerated, too silly and too special effects driven," wrote critic Laremy Legel in his review on Film.com. "It's also overly entertaining and fun."

Breaking away from the traditional narrative of other Marvel films, Guardians of the Galaxy changed the game and turned out to be an unexpected gem.
"Blessed with a laid back, anarchic B-picture soul that encourages you to enjoy yourself even when you are not entirely sure what is going on, the scruffy 'Guardians' are disrespectful in a way that appeals to the first' Star Wars', wrote Kenneth Turan for the Los Angeles Times.
