All the Best Nostalgic Movies to Watch on Netflix

New movies are great. We love the new trailers beforehand, our favorite stars in ultra-HD before our eyes, some of our favorite current music playing in the background. But sometimes, after a long day, you don’t want to have to meet new characters and fall in love with new plot lines. You want the good old familiar movies, ones whose lines can still strike you in the heart or whose jokes still tickle your funny bone.

Lucky for you, Netflix always has a solid rotation of nostalgic movies you can tap into. Whether you throw it back to the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s or even the early ’00s, Netflix has a movie that will take you down memory lane. But remember: the streaming service operates on rotation, and the movie you love might not be there next month, so you’ve got to strike while the iron is hot.

Here are our favorite nostalgic movies currently streaming on Netflix.
