Netflix is colder than the Midwest in the middle of February, as the service cuts over two dozen movies throughout the month.
A few of these movies include “The Other Guys,” “GoodFellas” and “Easy A.” After losing “Mary Poppins Returns” last month, Netflix now loses “Saving Mr. Banks,” a movie about the production of “Mary Poppins.” If you wanted Poppins to stick around, I guess you should have mary’d it.
Below, I’ve compiled seven recommended movies to check out before they depart Netflix. I only included films that still haven’t left the service (since over a third of the month has already passed). “The Other Guys” departs Feb. 11, so you’ll have to act fast, or you’ll be forced to watch the other movies.
You can see the full list of February departures at the bottom of this article.

“The Other Guys” (2010)
Premise: Adam McKay directed and co-wrote the screenplay for this detective comedy about two NYPD detectives who team up on a financial crimes case. As something of a parody of detective movies, “The Other Guys” intentionally makes the details of the existentially terrible financial crime boring while the duo gets into action-heavy and ridiculous hijinks. The bizarre disparity between the glory various detectives receive for their action-hero-prowess versus actually thwarting “evil” is the underlying theme.
Departure date: Feb. 11
Runtime: 1 hour, 47 minutes
