This year has been an interesting one for biographical dramas, with a stream of movies like Tetris, Blackberry, and Air all releasing to give viewers a look into the origins of notable brands and products. The next film coming out in that genre is the Eva Longoria-directed feature film Flamin’ Hot, which explores the claim Richard Montañez has been making for more than a decade that he came up with the idea for the popular Flamin’ Hot Cheetos while working as a janitor for Frito Lay.
The veracity of Montañez’s story has been hotly debated in recent years, particularly after The Los Angeles Times released an article disputing his claims. It sounds like the movie puts its own spin on the tale, adding a mixture of fact and fiction.
Actor Jesse Garcia stars as Montañez. You might recognize him from his role in the recent Netflix release, The Mother. Flamin’ Hot also stars Annie Gonzalez, Dennis Haysbert, and Tony Shalhoub. So, can you watch the movie on Netflix?
Is Flamin’ Hot on Netflix?
Flamin’ Hot is not available to watch on Netflix. You’ll need to look elsewhere for this particular movie if you’re a fan of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and curious about checking out the origin story! Those who enjoy dramatic films exploring the origin of iconic products and brands can watch Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher and The Billion Dollar Code on Netflix.
Where to watch Flamin’ Hot
The biographical comedy-drama film is getting a unique streaming debut in that it is the first feature film set to stream on both Hulu and Disney+. Normally, new content goes to one or the other, but Searchlight Pictures is distributing the movie to both platforms, meaning you have multiple options to watch.
Flamin’ Hot will be released simultaneously on Hulu and Disney+ on Friday, June 9, 2023. Check out the official trailer for the movie below.
