7 movies on Netflix that are the ultimate throwback treat

Remember these classics?

Sundays and movies go together like Ross and Rachel, as much as you want to explore other options, something always draws you back.

And while we’re always delighted to see new releases on Netflix, sometimes it’s good to rewatch some of the movies we loved the first time around.

Yes, the movies that have a soft spot in our hearts, the ones that we watched on sleepovers with our friends, and the ones that if we watched them for the first time now we’d roll our eyes but we can’t help think they’re cinematic genius.

We’re not going deep into the archives, but we’re talking the 00s classics that we loved as teens.

Here are seven that are worth the trip down memory lane.
