The five best movies coming to Netflix this week:

The Fast and The Furious (2001)

Buckle up for high-octane action and thrilling car races in this adrenaline-pumping blockbuster. Follow undercover cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) as he infiltrates a gang of street racers led by Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel). Fast cars, daring stunts, and unexpected twists make this movie an unforgettable ride.

It’s a legendary movie for any car-lover and perhaps one of the post-milennium’s ultimate cult classics.

Eat Pray Love (2010)

Join Julia Roberts on a soul-searching journey across Italy, India, and Bali as she embarks on a quest to rediscover herself after a painful divorce. Based on the best-selling memoir, this heartwarming film explores self-discovery, spirituality, and the beauty of embracing life’s uncertainties.

Embark on a quest of rediscovery with this heartwarming adaptation of the highly coveted book. Nourishment for the mind and soul.

Coming to America (1988)

Eddie Murphy stars in this timeless comedy about an African prince who travels to New York City to find true love. Packed with humour, charm, and unforgettable characters, this classic film will have you laughing out loud from start to finish.

Murphy has had many iconic guises in his time at the top of the comedy pile, however, this may well be his defining moment on screen.

Lost In Translation (2003)

Sofia Coppola’s poignant drama follows the unlikely connection between two lonely souls, Bob Harris (Bill Murray) and Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), in the bustling city of Tokyo. Their chance encounter leads to a deep and meaningful bond, reminding us of the power of human connection.

Bill Murray has rarely been as wonderfully whimsical as in this classic indie flick. If you spent the early ’00s on a dancefloor signing Arcade Fire, take a trip back 20 years to revel in this splendid movie again.

The Jerk (1979)

Steve Martin delivers a hilarious performance as Navin Johnson, an endearing but clumsy man who sets out to find his purpose in life. With its clever humour and absurd situations, this comedy gem is a true crowd-pleaser.

A lovable but bumbling man seeking his purpose in life, there is perhaps no better moment on screen this week than when The Jerk arrives on yours.
