Three of our favourite underrated movies currently showing on Netflix

  1. Set It Up – starring Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs, this movie is about two Personal Assistants with nightmare workaholic bosses who meet and decide to set them up and hopefully make their lives easier! It’s not going to win any awards but it’s cute and fun and an entertaining watch for an evening.
  2. Man Up – we only recently discovered this little gem of a movie which was released back in 2015. If you haven’t seen it yet, definitely give it a go. It stars Lake Bell and Simon Pegg as the leads who meet when Lake Bell’s character pretends to be the girl Simon Pegg’s character is due to meet for a blind date. There is some great back and forth between the characters and some amusing comedic scenes whilst also being a cute film with some quite sentimental romantic scenes.
  3. Ricki and the Flash – not one of Meryl Streep’s most famous movies but we enjoyed it! Streep stars as a rock ‘n’ roll chick who pursued her dreams as a musician above her family but returns home to try and make things right. Also starring Meryl Streeps real-life daughter, Mamie Gummer, it’s an entertaining movie with a mix of amusing and fun scenes with a touch of melancholy at times too.
