Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 78%

What critics said: "The director and his screenwriters have come up with the funniest film to appear in ages. It avoids the predictable crudity and silly laddishness (well, almost) you'd expect, and delights with zinging one-liners and charming performances." — Times

6. "Coffee and Kareem" (2020 — Netflix original)

6. "Coffee and Kareem" (2020 — Netflix original)

What critics said: "Things quickly escalate into chaos and stay there, but they do so in ways that are not quite funny enough to make you forget the implausibilities or the way serious stuff is played for bad jokes." — The Wrap

5. "The Last Airbender" (2010)

3. "Code 8" (2019)

3. "Code 8" (2019)

Netflix description: "In a city where super-powered people are ostracized, an earnest day laborer considers using his outlawed abilities for money to save his sick mother."

2. "Love Wedding Repeat" (2020 — Netflix original)

Netflix description: "Different versions of the same day unfold as Jack juggles difficult guests, unbridled chaos and potential romance at his sister's wedding."

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 36%
