My fav throwback movies to stream on Netflix & Hulu this Labor Day Weekend!

Happy Labor Day Friday!

We spent the past week in Florida: Orlando & Key West. We got back last night at around midnight, and I gotta say, my body is just straight up exhausted. I fully plan on sinking into the couch all weekend with the below list, some popcorn {i like mine with some parmesan, black pepper, & hotsauce lol}, & a glass of chilled rosé.

I really have a thing for “throwback movies”… especially movies from the 2000s. I find I keep going back and back to them, not to mention they are perfect for some lazy afternoons. They are some of my favourite movies to watch while Erik golfs with Lucy sleeping right next to me. . I’ve seen them all plenty of times so they’re also good ones to have in the background while I blog.

As far as movie choices, I LOVE a good black comedy, dark drama, &/or satire. That said, I also have a soft spot for 00s romcoms.

Here are some movies from the early 2000s that you can stream all weekend for free if you have Netflix or Hulu! Movies listed in red are on Netflix & those in Green are on Hulu!

The best throwback movies to stream on Netflix & Hulu this Labor Day Weekend!:

Cruel Intentions: Everything about this movie is super ridiculous and makes no sense but I love it. I’m obsessed with Kathryn Merteuil & her outfits. In fact, she is my vibe for Fall & Winter. Killer cast with Sarah Michelle Gellar, Selma Blair, Reese Witherspoon, & Ryan Phillipe… even some cameos from Joshua Jackson & Tara Reid.

Blue Crush: This movie reminds me of two things: high school & drybar! A feel good romcom with Kate Bosworth as a surfer girl & one that will instantly take you back to 2002. Not to mention, Zero7’s “Destiny” is iconic in this, right?

Heathers: An 80s cult classic starring Winona Ryder & Christian Slater. It’s contraversial teen noir movie & inspired movies like Jawbreaker {unfortunately, not streaming for free right now} & even Mean Girls. def one of the darker ones on this list.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall: This movie is seriously SO funny to this day! It’s a raunchy rom com {like full frontal male nudity in the first 10 mins kind of raunchy just an fyi lol} but a super fun watch watch starring Jason Segel, Kristin Bell, Russell Brand, & Mila Kunis.

Heartbreakers: I’m a sucker for a 90s/00s Jennifer Love Hewitt & this one is my favourite of hers! Entertaining movie with hints of a rom com where JLH & her mother {Sigourney Weaver} are con artists scamming rich men… the fashion in this is super fun too.

Election {also on Amazon Prime}: A dark comedy about a high school election starring Reese Witherspoon, Matthew Broderick & Chris Klein {LOVE him in this lol}. I love throwback highschool movies, the more drama the better, and this is no exception. If you like American Beauty, you’ll like this.

The Prestige: All star cast with Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johanssen… even David Bowie & directed by Christopher Nolan {also on the Batman Trilogy}. It follows the rivalry between two magicians who were once partners with a TON of twists that you won’t see coming. This one is a great one to watch at night.

American Psycho: I had to, right? As you can see, I really love movies with either Reese Witherspoon or Christian Bale. This is also one of my fav movies of all time… can you catch the reference on my blog’s homepage?! Anyways, it’s a social satire based in 1980’s Manhattan following investment banker Patrick Bateman & his psychopathic alter ego. Also forever changing the way we look at business cards 😉  {ps – easily the darkest of this list & not for the faint of heart just an fyi}

That’s about all I got – as far as the labor day weekend, we have NO PLANS and I want to keep it that way. I am straight up exhausted from traveling – it’s weird, I feel like I’m jetlagged even though it was only Florida. I’ll have a full on recap post on both Key West & the Everglades soon!

HBU? Any Labor Day plans orrrrrr any other movies that I clearly need to add to my list?! The more throwback, the better. LMK!

Happy Labor Day!

  • can’t get enough of pinot noir 🍷 I personally think they can go with almost anything {same w champagne & rosé}. We recently joined @saintsburywinery and absolutely love them. Awesome Pinots & Chards. They are so easy to get to from SF, right across from the @carnerosresort, &  the tasting experience there is just a BLAST ✨
〰️
I’ll get it all on the blog but some of the standout pinots were:
⚜️2016 Pratt Vineyard {Sonoma Coast} :: the Sonoma Coast is my fav region up here. More on that another day but this was SO GOOD. Think lavender, violet, dark fruit, blood orange, & racy acidity... dying to be drank w some proscuitto
⚜️ 2016 Sundawg {Russian River Valley} :: bright juicy cherries with a toasty nuttiness and tomato leaf - seriously!! Each sip just begs for another and another and another...
⚜️2016 Stanly Ranch {Carneros} :: lush berries, Tahitian vanilla, & cigars. A pinot with some serious sex appeal. This wine is def one to impress... but make sure your company is worth it, like don’t waste this on a kcufboy lol
...we even got to taste a 2002 Carneros Pinot which was just SMASHING. It’s amazing how complex and intriguing it was.
〰️
Ok now bc I’m so curious, what pinot would you choose? ps - don’t miss their rosé of pinot noir, SO juicy but still dry and only like $22 ✨ #slswine #pinotnoir #winetasting #sonomacoast #russianrivervalley #carneros #napavalley #saintsburywinery
