Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for November 5, 2015. After the long week you deserve a relaxing staycation with a bowl of popcorn, a bucket of ice cream, and only your Netflix queue to judge you. This past week, Netflix Watch Instant has been kind enough to supply us with Can’t Hardly Wait, The Devil’s Advocate, Rain Main, The 100, and more.
Addams Family Values (Barry Sonnenfeld) Rated PG-13 [94 min] – A comical Gothic horror-movie-type family tries to rescue their beloved uncle from his gold-digging new love. Starring Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christopher Lloyd, and Christina Ricci [Watch the Trailer]
If you’re looking for that perfect Thanksgiving movie to get you into the holiday spirit, Addams Family Values is what you seek. Anytime I rewatch this classic family film I’m always surprised by all the little quips I missed when I was a young lad. There’s so much hilarious adult content sprinkled through dark humor that it’s easy for kids to misinterpret the humor while adults get the last laugh.
Half Baked (Tamra Davis) Rated R [82 min] – The story of three not so bright men who come up with a series of crazy schemes to get a friend out of jail. Starring Dave Chappelle, Guillermo Díaz, Jim Breuer, Harland Williams, and Rachel True [Watch the Trailer]
I must have watched Half Baked a good 100 times throughout high school and college. The Dave Chappelle era was so strong that it was hard to resist. It’s a highly quotable movie, the camaraderie between friends is fantastic, and everyone is just plain hilarious. One of the all-time best comedies in my opinion.
Can’t Hardly Wait (Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan) Multicharacter teenage comedy about high school graduates with different agenda of life on graduation night. Starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ethan Embry, Charlie Korsmo, Lauren Ambrose, Seth Green, Peter Facinelli, Donald Faison, and Jaime Pressly [Watch the Trailer]
I will never not let you know that Can’t Hardly Wait has come back on Netflix. Everyone must see this movie. Just stop reading ahead. Watch the sh*t out of this movie.
Master of None (Aziz Ansari, Alan Yang) Rated TV-MA [30 min] – New Yorker Dev takes on such pillars of maturity as the first big job, a serious relationship, and busting sex offenders on the subway. Starring Aziz Ansari, Noël Wells, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe, Kelvin Yu, and H. Jon Benjamin [Watch the Trailer]
First things first, I had no idea Aziz Ansari was as young as he is, 32. I thought he was at least upper 30s. Secondly, Master of None looks like a perfect balance of laughs and feels that should spark an emotional accord with everyone. I’m anticipating the series when it premieres tomorrow, Friday, November 6!
