6. For A Good Time, Call

For a Good Time Call

Another comedy about sex, For A Good Time Call revolves around two young women in New York City who make ends meet by setting up their own phone sex line - even though they have hated each other since college.

3. Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World

Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World

The second Steve Carell film to leave Netflix this month is Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World, a rom-com about the ways that people react to the impending apocalypse. It’s certainly a bit of a different set up for the standard boy meets girl storyline, and Carell and co-star Keira Knightly are part of what makes this one so charming.

2. Sausage Party

The last of the comedies to wave goodbye to this month is Seth Rogen’s animated spoof Sausage Party, a tale about the journey of a sausage who wants to find out the truth of his existence. It’s R-rated for a reason, though, so don’t expect this to be one that you can watch with the whole family!

Leaving Netflix: August 23

1. The Road

The Road Viggo Mortensen

Viggo Mortensen stars in this post-apocalyptic drama about a man and his son struggling to survive in the wasteland that was once America. The Road is certainly not a lighthearted watch, but with incredible performances and action, it’s a great film for those who want something darker - and you’ve got till the end of the month to check it out.
