A new weekend is here, and this is a good one for a variety of content on Netflix. Here are our top picks for Netflix movies from Feb. 5 to 6.

There is something for everyone this weekend. It does help that we had the big first-of-the-month drop during the week. That brought an exciting amount of content, and usually means there is something for the whole family.

When it comes to Netflix Original Movies, you’re not going to find as much content. You’ll want to turn to the older movies to keep you entertained. However, there are some shows you’ll want to check out, including Raising Dion and Sweet Magnolias.

5 must-watch Netflix movies this weekend: Feb. 5–6

This list is in alphabetical order. It’s just too hard to compare the genres.

The Addams Family

We start with a movie for the whole family. This is the 1991 comedy starring Anjelica Hudson, Christina Ricci, and Christopher Lloyd. It’s time to meet the infamous Gothic family through the eyes of a man claiming to be the long-lost brother of Gomez Addams.

Lloyd plays Fester Addams, the elder brother and rightful heir of the house. His despicable mother encourages him to lie his way into the family and throw the rest of the Addamses out. Will he do the right thing and admit it all?

Despicable Me

Another one of the Netflix movies for the whole family is Despicable Me. The animated movie and its sequel are both now on Netflix again.

You’ll get to watch Gru go from evil to good once more. When he decides to steal the moon, he adopts three orphans to help him achieve his goal. What happens when he starts to catch feelings for these young girls, though? Can he be the father they’ve always wanted?

My Best Friend Anne Frank

Anne Frank is one of the most famous people from the Second World War. Her diary is known around the world, and in that diary is the mention of her friend Hannah Goslar.

My Best Friend Anne Frank is a telling of the real story of Anne and Hannah. It starts with their innocent lives being upended by Nazi occupation. We see how the two were separated and their harrowing reunion inside the concentration camps.

The Other Boleyn Girl

The next movie is very loosely based on history. It’s also based on the Philippa Gregory novel of the same name. It follows Mary Boleyn, her sister Anne, and King Henry VIII.

Henry falls in love with Mary Boleyn and she gives him a son—illegitimate but a child, and one who was never recognized in real history. However, Anne wants Henry and she will do anything to make that possible. That includes pushing her sister out. Things don’t quite turn into the fairy tale Anne hoped for.

The Tinder Swindler

Finally, it’s all about a documentary. The Tinder Swindler is just what it sounds like. It looks into the crimes of the man who swindled millions out of women on Tinder.

This documentary looks into how he did it and how he was caught. It’s a chance to understand the red flags on dating platforms so you can avoid the same thing happening to you.
