Judd Apatow movies you can stream on Netflix

The King of Staten Island

Judd Apatow’s work bears a variety of personal stamps, but it all comes down to two things: Making overlong films about overgrown man-children and assisting commercially unproven comedians in becoming huge stars by producing films and HBO shows in which they play lightly fictionalized versions of themselves.

Needless to say, a 140-minute dramedy starring and based on “SNL” breakthrough Pete Davidson — a tabloid-famous stoner who recently boasted on national television about still living with his mother — is pure Apatow. The King of Staten Island is currently streaming on Netflix.

This Is 40

This Apatow film is basically a feature-length version of casually mumbling,“Being an adult is hard, huh?” to a friend. This Is 40 features a lot of wonderful material, actual insights, and incredibly funny quips, all delivered by Leslie Mann, a performer who can make even wailing about wanting to go to the toilet in the middle of an overall scattershot picture entertaining.

The film is one of the funniest films on Netflix and if you want a mindless watch and want to share a few laughs, this is the film for you.
