Labor Day is gone and fall is just around the corner (I hope!) Let's take a look at what's new on Netflix to get us through these dog days of summer!
The lineup this month includes some memorable comedic films that will find laughs at home, on summer vacation, down under, outer space, and even during war. Action stars will also be protecting the President and entering kickboxing tournaments. If it's romance you want, you'll find it at a naval officer training school and on a deserted island.
Plus, the '80s Pop Twenty and usual features return this month for some added Netflix fun. Time to get your September fix!
When an overworked air-traffic controller goes on vacation with his family, a series of zany mishaps makes the retreat anything but relaxing.
Not one you normally think of when listing John Candy films, but still has some great laughs that can relate to some of our own family vacation memories. Jack Chester may not be Buck Russell or Del Griffith, but he still John Candy.
When Jack is laid off at the car factory, his wife takes a job at an advertising agency and leaves Jack at home to raise the kids.
I've grown to really love this movie over the years. We dads take "mom's work" for granted so much and even though this movie is over 30 years old, it still shows how difficult the balancing act of being a mom is.
It's a clash of cultures and a recipe for comedy when a crocodile hunter is plucked from the Australian outback for a visit to the Big Apple.
The sequel (which I prefer) has been on Netflix for quite awhile and I was wondering when they would add the original. I've always liked "Mick" Dundee, except for when he went to L.A. that one time. Not because I watched it, but because it was made in the first place.
'80s Pop Twenty
Here are the 20 most popular '80s movies currently available on Netflix. Very little movement from last month as you can see, but I bet some of the new movies added will make an impact next month.
The Care Bears live and play together in a country high in the clouds. But they also care for the children on Earth and come to help when needed.
Did I really go there? Yes, I did. We recently put it on for my young daughter's benefit, but I think me and the boys were more interested. It doesn't compare to like a Disney classic, but it was the animated beginning of the popular plush toys. There are many similarities to the Smurfs which helps plus the evil spirit villain is surprisingly scary for a "teddy bear" movie.
