It's interesting how over the years I appreciate her post oscar win work, with few exceptions in my top 10. Also the top 30 are movies I saw at least twice, and with SITE not seen yet (it might easily be included in top 10 as well, so Larry Wrown would go lower):

1 August Osage County
2 Erin Brokovich
3 My Best Friend's Wedding

4 Pretty Woman
5 Mirror Mirror
6 Closer
7 Duplicity
8 The Normal Heart
9 Charlie Wilson War
10 Larry Crown

11 Dying Young
12 Mystic Pizza
13 Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
14 Ocean's Eleven
15 Steel Magnolias
16 Mary Reilly
17 Eat Pray Love
18 The Mexican
19 Mona Lisa Smile
20 Notting Hill

21 Runaway Bride
22 Step Mom
23 Sleeping with the Ennemy
24 Pelican Brief
25 Conspiracy Theory
26 I Love Trouble
27 America's Sweethearts
28 Fireflies in the Garden
29 Something to Talk About
30 Everyone Says I Love you

I saw the rest of ther performaces only once because they weren't really memorable for me; so in no particular order:

31 Full Frontal
32 Michael Collins
33 Ready to Wear
34 Satisfaction
35 Blood Red
36 Ocean's Twelve
37 Flatliners
38 Hook

Secret of their Eyes not seen


i've not included some of her minor roles.
i have to say in the past she happened to be rather bad in the bad movies she made, like america's sweetheart, while more recently i think she was excellent in a mediocre movie like larry crowne.
i've never cared that much for her performance in notting hill, probably the only overrated work of her career in my book, and i'm not that crazy about her performance in steel magnolias - even if i totally adore the movie.
one of the best movies of her filmography is everybody says i love you imo, too bad she has an insignificant role (goldie totally steals the film).

The Hollywood Reporter ranked all her performances, and the order is so random:
