Netflix is one of the most popular streaming services in the world, with more than 220 million subscribers. And just what do those people tend to watch? In particular, what is the most popular movie on Netflix?
Each week, the streaming service releases a list of its 10 most-watched movies in the preceding seven days. Below, we’ve listed the top 10 movies in the U.S. from November 21 to November 27, along with general information about each film: genre, rating, cast, and synopsis.
It’s the holiday season, which means Netflix will release its slate of romantic Christmas movies. One of those films, Christmas with You, marks the long-awaited return of Freddie Prinze Jr. Once considered a ’90s heartthrob and romantic comedy icon, Christmas with You has Prinze’s first starring role in a live-action film since 2008.
In Christmas with You, Aimee Garcia stars as Angelina, a fading pop star looking to create a Christmas song to rejuvenate her music career. When Angelina listens to a young singer named Christina (Deja Monique Cruz), she does a meet-and-greet at her school. Angelina eventually meets Christina’s father, Miguel (Prize Jr.), the school’s music teacher. Sparks begin to fly after Angelina spends time with Miguel, and the two begin to write a song. Will it lead to love? Watch and find out!
Lindsay Lohan, your comeback begins now. In the new holiday romantic comedy Falling for Christmas, Lohan stars as Sierra Belmont, a spoiled heiress who has lost touch with reality as her fame skyrockets. When Sierra’s boyfriend proposes to her at the top of a mountain, she falls off, crashing to the bottom. When she awakes, Sierra suffers amnesia, struggling to remember something as simple as her name.
In the hospital, Sierra, who now goes by the name “Sarah,” meets Jake Russell (Chord Overstreet), the owner of a local bed and breakfast. Jake offers a place for Sarah to stay while she regains her memories, which she begrudgingly accepts. At the hotel, Sarah learns about the value of hard work and kindness thanks to Jake and his daughter, Avy (Olivia Perez). While not perfect, Falling for Christmas is a formulaic holiday movie with a feel-good ending.
Imagine an animated film that combined the heists of Ocean’s Eleven with the criminals of The Suicide Squad. As it turns out, that film exists in the form of The Bad Guys. Mr. Wolf (Sam Rockwell), the pickpocket getaway driver, leads his team of criminals known as “The Bad Guys.”
When the authorities catch The Bad Guys, Mr. Wolf brokers a deal for his team to avoid prison. The criminals will become model citizens in exchange for no prison sentence. In the beginning, the scheme works, and Mr. Wolf slowly finds himself wanting to leave a life of crime. However, a new villain emerges during the team’s absence, and The Bad Guys are called upon to save the day and thwart the plans of their new enemy.
