Best Summer Movies of All Time, Magic Mike

Courtesy Warner Brothers

It's a special kind of Valentine's Day movie that can satisfy the needs of both happily coupled and very, very single celebrants. It needs to be both cynical and optimistic; sensual, but not awkwardly so; and, most importantly, not preach to anyone that they need to get married. 

(Seriously, is there anything that can kill a V-Day buzz more than suddenly feeling like Hollywood thinks you're very, very behind on your life path?)

Luckily, Netflix is here for us this season. The streaming service knows that the stakes are high in February, with so many opportunities to Netflix-and-chill, whether literally or figuratively. Netflix has decided to throw us all a bone, again both literally and figuratively (sorry, we had to). 

The latest additions and removals are out this morning, and the first thing to stand out is that there are several good options for the holiday you love to hate: Namely, Magic Mike. There's truly no better movie to watch this time of year, whether you want to feel all googly-eyed or thank your lucky stars that you aren't dating someone like Richie. One could also delve into Sausage Party, as long as one is watching either alone or with a V-Day date with a very dirty sense of humor. 

If you want a perfectly innocent love story, might we suggest Finding Dory? Or, if you'd like to really go dark, one could do no wrong giving The People v. O.J. Simpson a try. Happy Valentine's Day, indeed.
