10 Shows and Movies to Add to Your Weekend Must-Watch List

TV is killing it lately, right? There’s no shortage of shows to stream — which can make it even harder to know where to start. So, because we’re always keen to help you out, we’ve got 10 shows and movies to get you started on your weekend binge-watch. Now there’s nothing left to do but kick back, make some healthy snacks and settle in for a marathon. Happy weekend!

BINGE-WORTHY TV SHOWS

1. Grace and Frankie: You never think you’re going to relate to a show about two older women whose husbands leave them for each other, and then Grace and Frankie comes along. But then again, you can’t go wrong when the legendary Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are the stars. Season two premieres on Friday. (Photo via Netflix)

2. Young and Hungry: Season two of the Emily Osment — you know, Lily from Hannah Montana — resurgence is landing this weekend on Netflix. The funny show about a food blogger turned personal chef is a guilty pleasure you actually won’t feel at all guilty about. (Photo via ABC)

OLD SCHOOL ROM COMS

3. Sixteen Candles: There are few ’80s movies more iconic than Sixteen Candles. Before The Breakfast Club there was this movie, starring Molly Ringwald as a sassy teen whose 16th birthday passes by forgotten. (Photo via Universal)

4. When Harry Met Sally: GUYS. IT’S WHEN HARRY MET SALLY. WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED TO KNOW? It’s finally available for streaming — run to Amazon. Now. (Photo via MGM)

MISUNDERSTOOD TEEN FLICKS

5. Ghost World: You’ve never seen ScarJo until you’ve seen her as an angsty teen graduating high school. The cult comedy classic was based on a comic book and is full of subtle laughs. Also, check it out for a bizarre appearance from Steve Buscemi. (Photo via United Artists)

6. Juno: If you somehow missed Juno when it came out, you can now catch up on the 2000s, courtesy of HBO. Or just watch it if you want to relive the majesty of great lines like, “Whoa… dream big!” (Photo via HBO)

LAUGHS FROM THE PAST

7. Bring It On: Kirsten Dunst cemented her status as a bona fide star in her role as The Most Determined Cheerleader Ever. Stream it this weekend — because life’s not a democracy, it’s a cheerocracy. (Photo via Universal)

8. Airplane!: When funny people talk about movies that inspired them, Airplane! is almost always on the list. The hysterical satire about what happens when an entire flight crew gets food poisoning still manages to make audiences roar with laughter over 35 years after it came out. (Photo via Paramount)

RELIVE THE ’90s



9. Election: High school is always full of characters. This flick stars Matthew Broderick as kind of the ultimate departure from Ferris Bueller: a teacher. He becomes obsessed with Reese Witherspoon’s overachiever character and becomes determined to ruin her bid for student body president. It will make you thankful to have graduated.

10. Benny and Joon: Warning: This movie is peak Johnny Depp, so prep yourself before watching. Aidan Quinn plays the brother of Joon, an artist and mentally-challenged woman who falls in love with Depp’s eccentric Sam. Julianne Moore and William H. Macy also had roles in the film. (Photo via MGM)
