We will give you three reasons to watch this one right away. The first reason – Jennifer Aniston. Second – Gerard Butler and the third – an endless game of exes. In this action comedy, bounty hunter Milo Boyd (played by Gerard Butler) is excited after discovering that, as part of his last mission, the rider he must pursue is his ex-wife, Nicole Hurley ( Jennifer Aniston).

This 2020 film promises a full dose of entertainment served as a perfect blend of action and comedy. It revolves around the story of a couple (played by Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani), who, on the verge of breakup, are involuntarily involved in a bizarre murder case, of which they are blamed. As they try to clarify their names and resolve the case, the couple introspect their relationship and try to understand how they can make amends. Directed by Michael Showalter, the film is also great because it shows realistic moments about a separating couple, combined, of course, with spiritual jokes.

Get smart

When a stellar distribution meets a helluva plot, the result must be incredible and Get smart provides just that. Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) is an ambitious and confident agent for CONTROL, a secret American agency, which one day is attacked by a terrorist organization. As a result, the identity of several secret agents is revealed. To thwart the evil terrorist group, Maxwell teams up with the much more capable Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway) and embarks on a mission to Russia, where the duo is joined by Agent 23 (played by Dwayne Johnson). What makes American action spy comedy more interesting is Agent 99’s continued efforts to carry out the mission while facing Agent Smart. However, it would not be wrong to say that Anne Hathaway dominates the screen without much effort in this film. The film directed by Peter Segal also stars Alan Arkin, Terence Stamp and James Caan.

Sit back, relax and grab a bowl of popcorn, because Netflix protects you.
