We love bringing y’all great new movies and TV shows every month, and November is no exception. If you are like me, Netflix is a great way to connect with friends, put in some family time, or just escape from the daily grind. We try to program Netflix with movies and TV shows that suit any mood.
For the day you need to break a rib laughing: 21 Jump Street
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill star as young cops banished to a special police program at 21 Jump Street, where they are tasked with infiltrating the dealers and finding the suppliers of a nasty new drug called HFS. Stages of the drug include “The Giggs,” “Over-Falsity of Confidence” and “Asleepyness.” You won’t be disappointed.
For the day you need a new screen crush: White Collar
After getting nabbed by the FBI, art forger and smooth criminal Neal Caffrey (played by the Texan Matt Bomer) agrees to help special agent Peter Burke (Tim Dekay) solve white collar crimes in exchange for staying out of jail. You’ll want to throw your hat into this ring.
For a family friendly “chick flick:” Chicken Run
Aardman Animation’s first full-length movie follows the Tweedy family’s escape from a farm in Yorkshire after the owners switch from selling eggs to selling chicken pies.
For a dose of Jim Carrey: Lemony Snicket’s A Series ofUnfortunate Events
After losing their parents, three children move in with their cousin, Count Olaf, who is secretly trying to swindle the family fortune. Based on a series of children’s books by Lemony Snicket, this dark comedy stars Meryl Streep, Billy Connolly, and the man of many faces, Jim Carrey. Watch out for leeches!
For some post-Edwardian upper-crust family drama: Downton Abbey
Coming soon, this highly decorated international smash is the most nominated foreign TV show in the history of the Emmys, and Maggie Smith took the supporting actress statue this year for her portrayal of Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham. We think you’ll agree it was well-deserved.
Other highlights for this month include Meet the Fockers, Michael Clayton, Open Season 3, and – in case you missed it – the first run exclusive of Breaking Bad Season 5, Part 1. Get cooking!
