12 Movies On Netflix That Are Worth Staying In To Watch

It's not like you really need much convincing to stay in once adulthood has you firmly in its grip. But having a Netflix movie worth staying in for just gives you that little extra incentive to battle cry "sweatpants or death!" Side note: wouldn't it be cool if there was a club where people could just wear sweatpants and just, like, hang out, and read, and watch movies, and stuff? Wait, I think that might be called a library. Well, then libraries should get alcohol. 

Anyway, back to Netflix. That saucy temptress that leads us to question if it's more important to go to work today, or to marathon Orange Is The New Black. If you're like me, you usually use streaming media for TV shows, and you forget that movies are an awesome thing that you can also watch. I always tell myself I should watch a show because I don't have time to watch a movie, and then I watch 12 straight hours of the show anyway, so... I guess I need to rekindle my love affair with movies. If you're in the same boat, here are some films (because fancy, artsy people call them films) that are totally worth staying in for.
