Movies to Watch or Skip on Netflix

I need to preface this post by saying that I am not a movie person. So, I decided to listen to Ben’s suggestions and give a few of these “feel good” movies a chance. I hope you enjoy reading about a few movies to watch or skip on Netflix this fall.

1. Always Be My Maybe-

I give it a: Thumbs Up

Ever since rolling on the floor laughing during Ali Wong’s wildly inappropriate Netflix stand-up special years ago, I’ve been a huge fan. I was excited to see that she wrote, directed, and produced her own movie. In a nutshell, the story follows two best friends who reunited after 15 years. They fall in love, but obviously there are some bumps in the road. There wouldn’t be a movie without them, right?

2. Love, Guaranteed

I give it a: Major Thumbs Down

I’m amazed by Rachel Lee Cook. She’s in her 40’s and looks like she did back in her “She’s All That” days. It’s truly remarkable. This movie, however, was probably the worst movie I’ve seen in a long time. This movie is about a lawyer who falls in love with her client. Lots of dramatic and cheesy twists and turns. I wasn’t into it.

3. The Week Of

I give it a: Thumbs Up

Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, and Steve Buscemi- say no more. I’d never have any regrets watching a movie starring these guys. In the movie, Adam Sandler is a father who is planning his daughter’s wedding. On a strict budget, he tries to hold the wedding at a Budget Inn on Long Island. There were parts that were stupidly funny and some real heart-swarming father/daughter scenes. I really enjoyed watching it.

4. Sleeping With Other People

I give it a: Thumbs Up

Fun fact, I have a huge celebrity crush on Jason Sudeikis. This movie is a few years old, and we were happy to find it on Netflix. It’s a romantic comedy about two best friends who end up falling in love. It’s an overall entertaining story with some truly funny scenes and characters. This was a good one for sure.

5. The Wrong Missy

I give it a: Thumbs Down

David Spade always makes me laugh, but this movie was just strange. The biggest disappointment came at the end of the movie. The crazy female character never become endearing at any point during the movie. Tons of awkward and down-right nasty scenes. In the movie, David Spade’s character is desperately trying to get rid of this crazy girl, Missy, with whom he had a terrible first date with. It was a weird one, and I wouldn’t suggest watching it.

I’ll keep watching and sharing movies to watch or skip on Netflix.
