The Film: In this 1970-set tale, Wahlberg tackles the role of real-life football pro Vince Papale.
He goes from 30-year-old bartender to football ace for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Wahlberg FTW: Balancing cheeky adorability with hangdog grit, Wahlberg effortlessly elevates director Ericson Core’s otherwise by-the-numbers sports flick.

I don't understand you sometimes, TF. You've got The Italian Job at 11, which you only describe him as being moderately good in.. Also, I get down to number 9 on the list think I can probably guess the top 8. I've almost got it nailed but I'm missing one film because you've put a TV show in at number 7. Personnally I think Whalberg kicks a*s in the departed but it was no where near as good of a role as Boogie Nights or The Fighter, and finally the image for Renaissance Man is from basketball diaries.. Really enjoyed the feature though

Wahlberg won an Oscar? When did that happen?

He was nominated for The Departed but never won.

I still maintain that the first 20 mins of The Happening are brilliant. Wahlberg was stunningly bad in it though
