Netflix this week (March 21-27) plans to add 16 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including 12 originals.
The new titles will include Nailed It! Double Trouble, a Netflix original cooking competition show where two bakers team up to create culinary concoctions for cash; A Week Away, a Netflix original family musical film about two star-crossed teens (Bailee Madison, Kevin Quinn) in a Christian summer camp; Bad Trip. a Netflix original comedy film starring Eric Andre and Lil Rel Howery as two best friends who take a road trip to Florida so one can express his love for his high school crush; and The Irregulars, a Netflix original drama series about a group of teens working with the infamous Dr. Watson to solve paranormal crimes.
Also notable: Croupier, a 1998 dramatic film starring Clive Owen (The Knick) as a struggling writer who takes a job in a casino to make ends meet. But his life is dealt an unexpected hand when he falls for a beautiful and larcenous woman. Rottentomatoes.com gives the movie a score of 96 out of a possible 100, based on 57 reviews.
“The writer slumming for human truths and real experience is a common enough story, but this cool-headed and slick thriller provides a gut-churningly compelling backdrop to a look at our darker sides,” the site states, summarizing the reviews.
