While every month brings new movies and shows to Netflix, we also see the departure of many licensed shows and films. It's always sad to see some of your favorite movies and series leave the streamer, but it's bound to happen at some point.

Why? Well, while Netflix does have its own shows and movies, it also purchases the streaming rights from other content owners for movies and TV shows. And since Netflix doesn't own the show/movie, it can only have these rights for a certain length of time. That time may be a year, two years, 10 years, or however long. So that's why it's always imperative to watch whatever licensed content that comes to Netflix as soon as possible.

We've looked over the January departure list, and there are three funny movies that we highly recommend that you check out before they leave the streaming platform. If you're curious about what they are, all you have to do is continue reading to find out.

Baby Mama

Departure date: Jan. 31, 2024

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are arguably one of the funniest comedic duos. If you see these two starring in a movie/show together, you absolutely must watch it. They have an interesting dynamic and feed off each other well. You can see this happen in the romantic comedy film Baby Mama.

Fey plays single successful executive Kate Holbrook who's infertile but desires to have a child. To make this happen, she hires a surrogate mother not knowing that the woman is the total opposite of her. Poehler portrays Angela "Angie" Ostrowski, a free-spirited woman from South Philly who Kate ends up hiring to be her surrogate. Although Kate has a certain way of how she wants the pregnancy to go, her planning goes completely out the window when Angie shows up on her doorstep needing a place to live.
