New Movies + Shows to Watch this Weekend: ‘He’s All That’ on Netflix + More

Published

on

Starbucks might have released the Pumpkin Spice Latte way too early, but we are still clinging to the last few summer weekends we have left. This weekend is no different, so we will be spending it — much like many of you — hanging out with friends and relaxing while we watch the best new movies and shows that are available on streaming. And whether you prefer Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or all of the above, checking out the freshest titles is a fantastic way for you to spend the weekend, too. But don’t worry about wasting time sifting through the new options now in front of you, because we here at Decider are happy to do the heavy lifting and help you figure out what to watch this weekend and where to stream it.

New Movies and Shows to Stream This Weekend: He’s All That, Vacation Friends and Pete the Cat Back to School Operetta

Per usual, let’s get started with the heavy hitters of the weekend. Netflix is remaking the 1999 classic rom-com in He’s All That this weekend, this time TikTok star Addison Rae is playing the popular girl who aims to makeover an unsuspecting boy. Over on Hulu, John Cena and Meredith Hagner are bringing the crazy to a mild-mannered couple played by Lil Rel Howery and Yvonne Orji in Vacation Friends. Disney+ is finally offering Emma Stone’s Cruella to audiences not willing to pay the premier fee; and, unfortunately, Amazon Prime Video is preparing for back-to-school time with the release of a special episode of Pete the Cat. But these options are just the beginning! Check out the rest of the hit movies and shows now available to stream below:

New on Netflix August 27: He’s All That

TikTok star Addison Rae is moving from the mobile screen to the big screen in Netflix’s latest original movie, He’s All That. A modern reimagination of the classic 90s flick, this romantic comedy centers on a popular teen social media girl (no surprise there) who, after her humiliating breakup goes viral, decides to make a risky bet to save her reputation: she will turn the most unsocial, unlikeable guy at school into prom king material. Cobra Kai‘s Tanner Buchanan stars as the pet project in this gender-flipped adaptation that is new on Netflix this weekend. And while some things have been brought into the social media age, the best parts of that romcom are sure to be the same, making He’s All That one of the top movies new on Netflix this month.

Stream He’s All That on Netflix

New on Hulu August 27: Vacation Friends

What happens on vacation, stays on vacation…right? Wrong! In this hysterical and wild comedy new on Hulu this weekend, soon-to-be-married couple Marcus and Emily enjoy an unforgettable week of fun when they meet new friends Ron and Kyla while on vacation. But when their “vacation friends” show up uninvited to their wedding, Marcus and Emily are horrified to learn that the inhibition-free vacation they enjoyed is going to come face-to-face with their reality. That empty promise couples make with acquaintances on vacation to “see each other in the real world” has never been taken more seriously than in Vacation Friends, starring John Cena, Lil Rel Howery, Meredith Hagner and Yvonne Orji.

New on Amazon Prime Video August 27: Pete the Cat Back to School Operetta

New on Amazon Prime Video this weekend is Pete the Cat: Back to School Operetta, a musical back-to-school special hosted by Pete the Cat and his friends Neville, Callie, Grumpy and more. It is time to put on those backpacks and get into school mode, and Pete the Cat is helping kids do so this weekend.

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

One player unsuccessfully tried to score the plate YESDADDY, to no avail.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
