Keep this page handy as we celebrate and list what is deemed the Best and Highest Rated Movies On Hulu in 2023.

Hulu might not be the first streaming service you think of when you think about original content, but they’ve released some great films over the past few years, from Palm Springs to Fresh. For a service that only started producing and hosting original films in late 2019, it’s already starting to make a name for itself.

Only two Hulu films are out thus far in 2023, but the number will surely grow as the year progresses. They have several exciting releases this year, so I can’t wait to expand this list in the coming months. For a broader list, check out our Best Movies on Hulu of All Time.

Best and Highest Rated Movies On Hulu in 2023

2. The Drop

Hulu is no stranger to dumb comedies, and The Drop is the peak example. It has an exciting premise – a group of friends gathered for a wedding have to confront their relationship issues which are magnified by the protagonists dropping their friends’ baby – but it doesn’t know how to do anything with it. This will certainly drop off this list as the year goes on, but it gets the honor of being here now because it’s one of the only films Hulu has released thus far. 

Official Premise: “Lex and Mani’s happy marriage is thrown into a tailspin when one of them accidentally drops their friend’s baby during an otherwise picturesque destination wedding weekend. While the baby is fine, the adults are not.”

Cast: Anna Konkle, Jermaine Fowler, Jillian Bell

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 51% 

Review Excerpt: “Despite its interesting premise and the general popularity of comedies set at destination weddings (like Palm Springs), The Drop is more grating than entertaining. The actors do their best to salvage it, but the lack of humor and the fact that it feels slow-moving despite its 90-minute runtime tank the film.”

1. Bruiser

The best Hulu film of the year thus far is a no-brainer. It’s the examination of fatherhood called Bruiser that debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2022. Getting unanimous praise from critics is no easy task, but Bruiser is just one of those films. 

Official Premise: “During summer break, 14-year-old Darious explores the boundaries of his manhood through tumultuous interactions with Malcolm, his strict father, and a burgeoning mentorship with mysterious drifter Porter.”

Cast: Trevante Rhodes, Shamier Anderson, Jalyn Hall 

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 100%

Review Excerpt: “There’s nothing new about the story, but Warren’s artistry is evident in how he presents the narrative, making Bruiser a film worth watching at least once. It doesn’t take sides between the two role models, nor does he fully resolve the questions raised. And the ending remains ambiguous yet riveting.”
