The Fall Guy has received one of Ryan Gosling’s best Rotten Tomatoes scores ever. The movie, which was directed by Deadpool 2‘s David Leitch, is adapted from the five-season 1981 television show of the same name, which in turn was inspired by the 1980 movie The Stunt Man. It stars Gosling as Colt Seavers, a stunt man who ends up working on a movie directed by a former flame, Jody Moreno (Emily Blunt), which causes romantic tension as they are both drawn into an action adventure following the disappearance of the movie’s star, Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).

Following the movie’s SXSW premiere, which took place two months ahead of the official The Fall Guy release date, the Rotten Tomatoes service has calculated an official score for the movie. With 20 critics weighing in, the movie has earned an aggregated score of 90%. While this score could fluctuate as more reviews are added, especially closer to its wide release, it is currently the fifth best-reviewed movie of Gosling’s entire career.

How The Fall Guy Compares to Ryan Gosling’s Overall Career

The Fall Guy‘s Rotten Tomatoes score is a remarkable achievement considering the fact only nine of the 27 rated movies starring Gosling have ever received a Rotten score, meaning that there is a plethora of competition for any new Fresh score. This is also Gosling’s highest score since the 2016 Best Picture contender La La Land. That movie earned a 91% score, which is tied with two other movies in the actor’s top five titles, showing just how close his new movie has come to the top. Below, see how it compares to Gosling’s overall top five titles:


Rotten Tomatoes Score

Drive (2011)


Half Nelson (2006)


La La Land (2016)


The Nice Guys (2016)


The Fall Guy (2024)


Ultimately, the The Fall Guy star is just three points shy of tying for his best score ever. The movie has also landed even higher on the chart than some of Gosling’s biggest hits, including the 2023 smash Barbie (88%), for which he was nominated for an Oscar. Other prominent titles from his career that it has so far outclassed include The Big Short (89%), Blade Runner 2049 (88%), Crazy, Stupid, Love. (79%), and The Notebook (54%).

The new Super Bowl trailer for The Fall Guy showcases Ryan Gosling’s natural comedic abilities as the action comedy offers his funniest role in years.

There are still several hurdles for The Fall Guy to overcome. The first will be maintaining this high score when a broader swath of critics have the opportunity to review the movie. The second will be connecting with general audiences in the same way that it seems to have connected with critics. If it does so, however, it could potentially become one of the biggest hits of Gosling’s career alongside its competitive Rotten Tomatoes score.
