Ugghhhhhhhhhh. Finally, finally, the weekend is here.

So, what to do? Our foolproof plan is stick on some microwave popcorn, pour half a melted slab of butter over it, and watch one of these quality flicks on Netflix. 

The instant cure.

1. Naked 

Every time Rob Anderson comes close to marrying the girl of his dreams, he wakes up naked in an elevator, reliving his wedding day.

2. Handsome Devil 

Starring Amu Huberman, Ardan O'Hanlon and Fionn O'Shea, Irish film lovers were delighted when this 2017 Irish film was added to Netflix. If you're in the mood for a heartwarming tale, then give this a watch.

3. Okja

A huuuuge success at Cannes Film Festival, Okja tells the story of a girl and her pet; he just happens to be a genetically bred super-pig primed for consumption. 

4. Lovesick 

If you're in the mood for a sitcom instead of a film, this British comedy will give you a giggle. Set in a series of flashbacks as Dylan tells his ex-girlfriends he's got chlamydia, each episode will leave you wanting more.

5. Cable Girls

Being a woman in 1928 was no easy task. Four women in search of independence are brought together through their work as telephone operators. 

Makes for excellent watching. 

6. Obvious Child 

While going through a pretty shitty period in her life, what with her boyfriend cheating on her with her best friend, New York comedian Donna (Jenny Slate) has a one night stand and later discovers that she's pregnant. She doesn't know if she should have the child or tell the father she's pregnant... 

Sounds serious, but it's weirdly hilarious.

7. Wet Hot American Summer

Here's a cult classic that all comedy fans need to watch at some point... Set in a summer camp during 1981, Wet Hot American Summer stars a host of celebrities from before they became huge, including Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler and Elizabeth Banks.

8. Heist

Who doesn't love a good heist?

Throw Robert DeNiro in there and you know you're onto a winner.

He plays a loving father who is too broke to pay his daughter's medical bills. So naturally he robs a bank. As you do.

See, all better now xox
