The biggest new release this weekend is definitely the Netflix original film Someone Great.

Dig a good British comedy? Watch cultures collide in season 5 of Cuckoo, the BBC series about a British young woman who disappoints her family when she brings an outrageous American (Andy Samberg) home as her new husband.
