It’s definitely a good idea to show this movie to your kids. Maybe right before bedtime?

So every week I’ve been writing these Monday morning posts highlighting what’s new and notable on Netflix in the coming week. It’s a useful process for me personally, because it either reminds me of stuff I’ve been meaning to watch (can’t wait to stream the Michael Jordan docuseries The Last Dance and catch up on what everyone was talking about a few months ago) or introduces me to stuff I never knew existed (often a lot of “Netflix Original” TV series imported from overseas).

Usually before I start writing I google the names of a few unfamiliar additions so I can try to figure out what I want to write about. When I did that tonight, the first thing I searched was Animal Crackers, a “Netflix Film” joining the service July 24. I hit up the movie’s Wikipedia page, and this is what I saw:

I suddenly have both nothing to say and so many questions. (Said Wikipedia page gets pretty wild; choice excerpts: “Owen inadvertently eats [an animal cracker] and turns into a hamster” and “…its soundtrack includes original songs by Toad the Wet Sprocket, Huey Lewis and the News, Howard Jones and Michael Bublé.)

But instead of diving deeper into this existential spiral, I’ll just tell you what you actually want to know, which is what’s coming to Netflix this week—and leaving, too.
