The Almost Legends is a Netflix film dominating the Top 10 movies on the streaming service this week. And for good reason!

The 2023 title follows the lives of two brothers who go their separate ways once their father passes; one an aspiring TV star, the other taking life one day at a time. Years later, when they finally reunite, they catch up on missed time by engaging in some of the most hilarious shenanigans ever. There’s truly no place like home.

Read more of the official Netflix synopsis below:

"Romeo and Preciado are the sons of Valentín, a man in love with love, music, a car aficionado, and a total casanova with two wives. When their father suddenly dies, the brothers decide to go their separate ways in chase of their own destinies. After a while, Romeo puts his dream of becoming a telenovela villain on hold to return to Bahia Colorada and drive in a mythical rally to “honor his father’s memory”. This trip will not only reunite him with Preciado, but with all the fun and endearing characters in this northern Mexican community, who will confront him with a past he refuses to overcome."
