    This is a great list! Doubt I’ll have time to watch all these, but I’m sure I can knock out a few. Another movie I always recommend to people is Family Man with Tea Leoni and Nicholas Cage. Underrated and really hits home. Also, I can’t believe you don’t have Love Actually on here? :) Thanks for writing!

    1. Jenn Post author

      Hi Stephanie! Thanks so much for reading! I love the Family Man and Love Actually, too! This post focuses on movies available to stream for free this year which is why you don’t see them included. :)
