Best romantic movies: Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special

Release Year: 2016

Directed by Akiva Schaffer and Scott Aukerman

Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special is a must-watch if you’re in the mood for some laughs. The special premiered on Netflix one week before Valentine’s Day on February 7, 2017. It’s one of the funniest shows and movies Netflix has ever made.

In the special, Santa Claus needs help saving Christmas by making more people have babies. He enlists the help of Michael Bolton to try and get people to make love on Valentine’s Day, so more babies will be born by Christmas. Bolton puts on a variety to show to help people make love and have babies.

The premise is ridiculous, but it makes so much sense when you see it. It’s hilarious! I wish Netflix would make more of these comedy specials. They are a great way to take advantage of something cable networks can’t do and won’t do.
