When you’re stuck at home, one of the last things you probably want to hear is content leaving Netflix. But with bad, there is good because some titles such as A Cinderella Story and The Ugly Truth are leaving, allowing new films and series to be hosted on the platform.
1 Big Fat Liar
If you’re looking for a good film to show your kids while they’re stuck at home, look no further than Big Fat Liar. The story follows Jason Shepard, a 14-year-old who happens to be a pathological liar. See, the problem is that when a greedy Hollywood producer steals his creative writing assignment, no one believes his tale.
2 The Craft
“Light as a feather, stiff as a board.” Yup, that spell can be heard by the coven of four high school witches invoking the spirit in the 1996 film The Craft. But only for a short while longer. The movie follows Sarah, a young girl who just moved to Los Angeles and became friends with the outcasts.
Then, everything snowballs, and Sarah becomes involved in spellcasting and curses. Don’t let us fool you, though; this film is dark and includes some mature material. The film is going to be on Netflix a little while longer, so you’re going to want to watch it fast! But, remember, don’t be like Nancy!
3 National Treasure
Get ready to watch Nicholas Cage steal the Declaration of Independence in National Treasure. The film follows Ben Gates, a historian, and his friends Abigail and Riley as they search for clues to lead them to a lost treasure hidden during the Revolutionary War. What is the Declaration for you ask? Well, it has a coded message on the back of it, of course!
4 Dirty Harry
Drawing off the real-life case of the notorious Zodiac Killer, Dirty Harry is a neo-noir that follows the story of a San Francisco Police Department Inspector, “Dirty” Harry Callahan, as he tracks a similar psychopath. The critically acclaimed film is a great choice for anyone who enjoys classic police dramas and the acting chops of Clint Eastwood.
5 A Cinderella Story
If you haven’t seen A Cinderella Story, it’s a modern remake of the classic story. Sam is bright, beautiful, and a social outcast who wants nothing more than to go to Princeton to get away from her horrible stepmother and stepsisters. Insert prince charming, aka Chad Michael Murray.
6 Good Burger
There’s always time for some nostalgic movies. So what better way to spend your time being stuck at home than watching Good Burger starring Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell? The movie is based on the two comedians’ sketch from the Nickelodeon TV show All That, meaning it’s the perfect film if you’re in need of some good laughs.
Martin Scorsese’s classic film Goodfellas is making its exit from Netflix at the end of April. The story is based on the non-fiction novel Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi and follows the rise and fall of Henry Hill, a mob associate, and his friends and family from 1955 to 1980
8 Space Jam
It breaks our hearts to say it, but Space Jam is going to be taken off of the streaming platform at the end of April. So, the time to watch Michael Jordan team up with Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes to defeat the Monstars so they’re not enslaved on Moron Mountain is now.
9 True Grit
The critically acclaimed film True Grit is only going to remain on Netflix for a little while longer. Starring Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld, Josh Brolin, and Matt Damon, the modernized western story follows a rag-tag group made up of a young girl, trigger-happy lawman, and a Texas ranger as they embark on a wild adventure that tests their “true grit.” Their mission: to find an outlaw named Tom Chaney.
10 The Ugly Truth
There’s always time for a good, silly rom-com, especially when you’re stuck at home. So, before The Ugly Truth is taken down from Netflix, be sure to see it in all of its laugh-worthy glory. The story follows Mike and Abby, two very different types of people.
Abby is a serious show producer who believes in true love, while Mike is a show host who has a cynical outlook on relationships. What happens between them is nothing short of hysterical. Unfortunately for those souls who love romantic comedies, The Ugly Truth is going to be taken down from the streaming platform at the end of April.
11 A Little Princess
Set during World War I, A Little Princess follows the story of Sara, a young girl who is sent to a boarding school after hearing her father had died in combat. Only, he didn’t die; he was just severely injured and suffering from amnesia. Unfortunately for Sara, that means she’s stuck in a school where the headmistress mistreats the students.
You’re going to have to watch the classic film to see if Sara and her friends make it out of the boarding school, okay. And if Sara’s father ever comes for her. This is a great family drama to watch with your kids if you’re stuck inside!
12 Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is the classic tale of Li Mu Bai, a skilled swordsman who decides its time to leave violence behind him. In doing so, he entrusts his Green Destiny sword to female warrior Yu Shu Lien. It’s her job to bring the sword to Governor Yu. Of course, not all goes as planned, and a masked burglar steals the sword.
You’re going to have to watch Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, to see if the warriors can reclaim the stolen weapon! Don’t wait to watch this film for too long; it’s scheduled to leave Netflix at the end of April.
13 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
If you’re in the market for an action-packed movie that has weird CGI ninja turtles as the main heroes, then you’re going to want to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The movie follows the story of four turtle brothers who love crime-fighting and pizza. And while they’re “sensei” rat tells them not to show their faces street-side, they can’t help it.
