Best Movies/Shows to Watch for a Netflix Party

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at USF chapter.

Since the majority of the world is currently in quarantine, socializing face-to-face with friends has become a thing of the past. Thankfully, FaceTime, Zoom and apps like Houseparty have made it possible to keep up with friends during these times.

But one thing that you have probably missed with your friends is movie nights. Netflix has got your back with an extension for Google Chrome called Netflix Party. This allows you to watch a Netflix movie or show with others at the same time and allows you to interact with its chat bar feature on the side.

If you’re looking to start a Netflix watch-party with your friends soon, I’ve compiled a list of movies and shows that can meet all of your friend’s entertainments tastes.

Tiger King

Everyone has probably heard of the famous Joe Exotic. This docuseries includes exotic animals, murder, “diss tracks,” backstabbing friends, some serious fashion statements and more than you could ever imagine. It’s a bridgeable series that will make you and your friends convinced that joining a zoo of exotic animals is a bad idea and that this show is a goldmine for memes.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before / P.S. I Still Love You

These movies are the ultimate chick flicks for a movie night with the girls. These movies, which are based on American author Jenny Han’s novels of the same name, are set in a high school and tells the story of a young teen romance. This means that there is bound to be drama that will make everyone chime in with their opinions.

Money Heist (La Casa de Papel)

With Season 4 just being released, you and your friends will have plenty of episodes to binge-watch. With relatable characters, iconic show props and an intricate plot, this Spanish crime series will keep you on your toes and will make you add “Bella Ciao” to your quarantine playlist.

The House of Flowers (La Casa de Las Flores)


If you like black comedies, then you will love The House of Flowers. This Mexican “modern telenovela” is a sort of parody that tackles many topics present in Mexican culture while simultaneously keeping the drama and suspense alive. You can watch it on Netflix dubbed in English.

Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer

Judy’s frustrations are more than ever relatable in this film. Her “bummer summer” begins after her friends and her parents leave for different places, leaving Judy with ruined summer plans. If quarantine mood has gotten you feeling bummed about the shift in your summer plans, you should watch this lighthearted movie with your friends and remind yourself that everything will be just right.
