After a long week, there is nothing better than snuggling up on the couch to watch an endless stream of Netflix’s movies. Whether you are watching with your other half, or just going solo with a tub of Ben & Jerrys, we have you covered.
We have compiled the perfect list of movies to get you through the weekend without a care in the world.
Here we go…
1 The Intern (2015)
‘The Intern’ starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway is the perfect way to start the weekend.
This light-hearted comedy revolves around 70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro) who decides to put aside retirement to seize the opportunity to become a senior intern at an online fashion site. His charm. wisdom and sense of humour help him to develop special bonds and growing friendship, even with the boss Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway).
The storyline is easy to keep up with and has humour splashed throughout. To be honest, you will struggle to find an easier watch than ‘The Intern’.
2 The Brothers Grimsby (2016)
‘The Brothers Grimsby’ is a laugh-out-loud comedy featuring Borat star, Sacha Baron Cohen and British Actor, Mark Strong.
One of them is a spy on the run from a terrorist, and the other is the village idiot brother – I’ll say no more.
The movie fits perfectly into the ‘Crude-Humour’ category and contains some rather interesting scenes, to say the least. Just like in many of his movies, Sacha Baron Cohen brings comedy to a whole new level making ‘The Brothers Grimbsy’ comedic gold.
It certainly won’t stimulate the brain, but it sure as hell will leave you on the floor in tears of laughter.
3 Daddy Day Care (2003)
Throwing it all the way to 2003 (15-YEARS AGO!!!) with this addition.
‘Daddy Day Care’ has recently been added to the Netflix’s movie collection and I can honestly say that it has aged well. After all these years Eddie Murphy is just as good, and the movie is still just as entertaining.
‘Daddy Day Care’ is still the perfect feel-good film for any Sunday afternoon on the couch.
4 The Fundamentals of Caring (2016)
‘The Fundamentals of Caring’ starring Selena Gomez, Paul Rudd and Craig Roberts is one of the highest rated movies on Netflix’s, and it’s not hard to figure out why.
The movie revolves around a writer (Paul Rudd) who retires after a personal tragedy and becomes a disabled teen’s caregiver. When the two of them embark on an impromptu road trip, their ability to cope is tested as they start to understand the importance of hope and friendship.
The story is touching but also incredibly funny at times. The mix of emotion and humour makes it the perfect weekend watch.
5 Young Offenders (2016)
I have to mention at least one Irish Movie.
‘Young Offenders’ starring Chirs Walley and Alex Murphy had a budget of just €50,000 but still managed to gain a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie was so good that BBC even commissioned a TV series this year.
This Irish comedy is about two Cork teenagers who go in search of a bale of Cocaine worth €7 million – if that sentence alone doesn’t spark your interest, nothing will.
‘Young Offenders’ has it all and easily one of the funniest movies on Netflixs. I cannot recommend it enough.
