Must-Watch Movies Leaving Netflix in January: ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall,’ ‘La La Land,’ and ‘Eat Pray Love’

Los Angeles, CA – As the new year begins, movie enthusiasts who have made a resolution to watch more great films will need to make sure they don’t miss out on some of the gems that will be leaving Netflix this January. While the streaming service has added numerous new movies and TV shows this month, it’s time to bid farewell to a few beloved titles. Among the movies that have already departed earlier in the month are “BlacKkKlansman,” “Get Out,” and the “Spy Kids” franchise. However, there are still a few must-watch movies left before they too disappear from Netflix.

One of the movies that viewers should definitely catch before it leaves is “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” The film follows the story of Peter, played by Jason Segel, as he goes through a painful breakup with his famous ex-girlfriend, Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell), who is a movie star. To make matters worse, they end up at the same Hawaiian resort, where he has to endure seeing her with her new insufferable boyfriend. However, as luck would have it, Peter meets some new friends, including Rachel (Mila Kunis), a compassionate hotel staffer, and Chuck (Paul Rudd), a surfing instructor full of positivity. This heartfelt and humorous movie is definitely worth watching before it disappears.

Another film that shouldn’t be missed is “La La Land,” starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Set in modern-day Los Angeles, the movie follows the love story of a pianist and an actress, both chasing their dreams of success. The musical romantic comedy, which won six Oscars, showcases director Damien Chazelle’s references to classic musicals like “Singin’ in the Rain” and “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.” With its catchy music and dazzling choreography reminiscent of Hollywood’s golden age, “La La Land” is a must-watch for fans of the genre and movie lovers in general.

Lastly, viewers should catch “Eat Pray Love” before it leaves Netflix. Based on the memoir by author Liz Gilbert, the movie depicts Gilbert’s journey of self-discovery as she embarks on a three-country trip following her divorce. Julia Roberts shines in the lead role, portraying the deeper aspects of Gilbert’s adventures in Italy, India, and Bali. Along the way, she finds joy in food, spirituality, and new love. Whether you’re yearning for travel or seeking your own personal growth, “Eat Pray Love” offers a fulfilling and inspiring experience.

These three movies can’t be missed for their captivating stories, talented cast, and the myriad emotions they evoke. Make sure to catch them on Netflix before they vanish at the end of January.
