Another new month means another fresh crop of streaming selections on Netflix. Plenty of new movies are being added in May — hello, Coco — not to mention the awesome selection that's already available. These are some of the best movies every woman should watch on Netflix this May — whether it's date night or a girls' night in, there's a perfect movie for every occasion.
For all of the jokes people make about binge-watching TV shows on Netflix — and the streaming service's famous pop-up asking if you're still watching — fans shouldn't sleep on Netflix's expansive movie selection, either. Between Netflix's original movies, like When We First Met and the upcoming Ibiza, and its collection of both highbrow and lowbrow films, there's no shortage of options for a night in watching a movie. That goes double for women who are looking for films that are empowering, inspiring, or just plain fun to help them kickoff the summer.
And if you're in the mood to rewatch something you've seen before, Netflix is adding some nostalgic finds to its movie lineup this month. High School Musical 3, for instance, is now available for Netflix streaming, and Mamma Mia! is joining the streaming service on May 16. So this month, kick back and relax with these movies on Netflix — because you definitely deserve it.
