Netflix’s top 10 truly has something for every member of the family. While action movies and thrillers have been dominating the Netflix top 10 in July, a flurry of animated family films have entered the chart. (The previous No. 1, The Out-Laws, has been dethroned.) However, it’s not all kid-friendly fair. There are still comedies, thrillers and some beloved classics still in the mix.
Continue on to see the full Netflix top 10 movie list as it currently stands on Sunday, July 16, 2023. (Trailers and official descriptions of each movie are included in case you want to learn more about the films.)
10. ‘Rush Hour’

When Hong Kong police detective inspector Lee’s (Chan) favorite pupil is kidnapped in America, the dedicated cop and martial arts genius travels to the United States to find her. Unhappy to have a meddling outsider, the FBI assigns reckless, arrogant and infuriating LAPD detective James Carter (Tucker) to baby-sit Lee–and keep him away from the investigation.

Official Synopsis: “When Ballister Boldheart (Riz Ahmed), a knight in a futuristic medieval world, is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, the only one who can help him prove his innocence is Nimona (Chloë Grace Moretz), a mischievous teen with a taste for mayhem — who also happens to be a shapeshifting creature Ballister has been trained to destroy. But with the entire kingdom out to get him, Nimona’s the best (or technically the only) sidekick Ballister can hope for. And as the lines between heroes, villains, and monsters start to blur, the two of them set out to wreak serious havoc — for Ballister to clear his name once and for all, and for Nimona to…just wreak serious havoc.
