The Most Popular Movies On Netflix Right Now Besides 'Operation Varsity Blues'

A prank comedy, a buzzy new documentary and a Christian teen musical appear in the latest rankings.

“Bad Trip” is the most popular movie on Netflix, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.

Starring Eric André, Tiffany Haddish and Lil Rel Howery, the hidden camera prank comedy was originally due to premiere in March 2020 and have a theatrical run. After the COVID-19 pandemic squashed those plans, however, Netflix purchased “Bad Trip” and released the film on March 26, 2021.

In second place is “Secret Magic Control Agency,” an animated family film that imagines Hansel and Gretel as spies tasked with finding the kidnapped king and fighting a gingerbread house-dwelling witch. The new commercial fishing documentary “Seaspiracy” is in the No. 3 spot.
