On the first day of each month, the world’s biggest streaming platforms—from Netflix
But on the first day of each month we lose a lot of content as well. Between now and the end of November, Netflix will ditch dozens of movies. Luckily, you’ve got some time left to watch your favorites—or perhaps discover a new favorite.
In this article, I’ll highlight ten great films exiting Netflix by December 1. And at the end of the article, you’ll find a full list of movies leaving the platform this month.
School of Rock (Leaving Dec. 1)
Overly enthusiastic guitarist Dewey Finn gets thrown out of his bar band and finds himself in desperate need of work. Posing as a substitute music teacher at an elite private elementary school, he exposes his students to the hard rock gods he idolizes and emulates—much to the consternation of the uptight principal. As he gets his privileged and precocious charges in touch with their inner rock ‘n’ roll animals, he imagines redemption at a local Battle of the Bands.
Don’t Go Breaking My Heart 2 (Leaving Dec. 1)
A financial analyst lands a new job and soon finds that her office is near that of a former lover, who may not be over her yet. If you haven’t seen the first movie…don’t worry! Because it’s also available on Netflix.
Million Dollar Baby (Leaving Dec. 1)
Frankie Dunn is a veteran Los Angeles boxing trainer who keeps almost everyone at arm’s length, except his old friend and associate Eddie “Scrap Iron” Dupris. When Maggie Fitzgerald arrives in Frankie’s gym seeking his expertise, he is reluctant to train the young woman, a transplant from working-class Missouri. Eventually, he relents, and the two form a close bond that will irrevocably change them both.
Beverly Hills Ninja (Leaving Nov. 22)
When a young American boy washes ashore near a village populated by skilled Japanese warriors, they raise the child as one of them and instruct him in the ways of ninjitsu. Unfortunately, he grows up to be the overweight and inept but very enthusiastic Haru, who remains intent on becoming a real ninja. Haru’s first assignment—protecting a beautiful woman from California—doesn’t go smoothly, since he’s both uncoordinated and completely unaccustomed to Western culture.
Letters to Juliet (Leaving Dec. 1)
While visiting Verona, Italy, with her busy fiance, a young woman named Sophie visits a wall where the heartbroken leave notes to Shakespeare’s tragic heroine, Juliet Capulet. Finding one such letter from 1957, Sophie decides to write to its now elderly author, Claire. Inspired by Sophie’s actions, Claire sets out to find her long-lost lover, accompanied by her disapproving grandson and Sophie.
A Knight’s Tale (Leaving Dec. 1)
Peasant-born William Thatcher begins a quest to change his stars, win the heart of an exceedingly fair maiden and rock his medieval world. With the help of friends, he faces the ultimate test of medieval gallantry—tournament jousting—and tries to discover if he has the mettle to become a legend.
Pineapple Express (Leaving Dec. 1)
Stoner Dale Denton’s enjoyment of a rare strain of marijuana may prove fatal when he drops his roach in a panic after witnessing a murder. Upon learning that the fancy weed can be traced back to them, Dale and his dealer go on the lam, with a dangerous drug lord and crooked cop hot on their heels.
Master Z: The Ip Man Legacy (Leaving Nov. 23)
Defeated by Master Ip, martial arts expert Cheung Tin Chi tries to lead a normal life in Hong Kong until triad leaders draw him back into fighting.
Chef (Leaving Dec. 1)
After a controlling owner pushes him too far, chef Carl Casper quits his position at a prestigious Los Angeles restaurant. As he tries to figure out what his next step should be, he finds himself in Miami. Carl joins forces with his ex-wife, best friend and son to launch a food-truck business, and the venture provides a chance to reignite his passion for cooking—as well as his zest for life and love.
Line Walker (Leaving Dec. 1)
An undercover cop (Charmaine Sheh) is contacted by a mysterious character, known only as “Blackjack,” who claims to be another stranded mole.
