Netflix Canada and Shomi's old-school November arrivals bring out feelings of nostalgia

From SheKnows Canada
These movies and TV shows set for release this month on Netflix Canada and Shomi will turn you into a recluse (because who can resist a good TV marathon?) and have you looking back fondly on your teenage years.

Remember the slumber parties, the popcorn and the pampering sessions with your friends? When you sang along loudly (and terribly) to Backstreet Boys songs and watched Friends and Lizzie McGuire on repeat? We do, and this November Shomi and Netflix have some new releases that have made us conjure up all those good memories — even though some of these titles aren't exactly critically acclaimed.

1. Hope Floats

Hope Floats may just be one of those movies where you disagree with the critics, because Sandra Bullock is impossible not to love, and we get to see her in one of her earlier roles. She stars as a woman whose husband cheated on her with her best friend. Hope Floats was available on Shomi from Nov. 1.

What else can you expect to bring back the nostalgia?

Some of the other movies we're definitely looking forward to seeing again, include these six:

2. 9 to 5

9 to 5 (Shomi, Nov. 11), stars Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton who all work for a real pig of a man and decide to teach him a lesson or two. This certainly deserves a re-watch if you haven't seen it (especially if you haven't seen it more than 10 times already).

3. The Sixth Sense

Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment star in this creepy supernatural thriller by M. Night Shyamalan. The Sixth Sense (Netflix, Nov. 1) follows a child who sees ghosts who don't know that they're dead, and a child psychologist with some of his own demons. This is one of the greatest movies from the '90s and will haunt you for days after watching — I clearly remember not being able to sleep after watching it as a teen.

4. Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing (Shomi, Nov. 6), is a tale about a young woman's escapades in the summer before she goes to college. Needless to say, the music is timeless and the late Patrick Swayze was super hot in this chick flick classic.

5. When Harry Met Sally...

When Harry Met Sally... (Shomi, Nov. 15), with Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan brings back memories of youth aplenty. The story sees Harry (Crystal) and Sally (Ryan) meet and discuss whether a man and a woman can ever be truly platonic friends. They part ways on poor terms, only to meet again several times, always going back to their initial discussion topic. Comedy gold.

6. But I'm a Cheerleader

But I'm a Cheerleader (Shomi, Nov. 20), is all about a cheerleader whose parents think she's a lesbian and send her to a homosexual deprogramming camp. This is a surprisingly funny and witty movie, which will have you in fits of laughter many times over.

7. Rumor Has It

Rumor Has It (Shomi, Nov. 20) — an all-star cast of Jennifer Aniston, Mark Ruffalo (major crush alert), Kevin Costner, Shirley MacLaine, Mena Suvari and Richard Jenkins makes for an enjoyable comedy-drama from Rob Reiner.

Whether you're shocked at the kind of movies you used to enjoy watching, or impressed by your taste in movies after all these years, either way, we're sure it'll be a pleasant trip down memory lane.
