Hidden Gems in Netflix Streaming: Smile and The Golden Child

“You may say I'm a streamer, but I'm not the only one.”

With all the options available for Netflix streaming, it's hard to find a movie sometimes. You may only have time to watch one or two, but there are thousands to browse through. I'm picking out some of the hidden gems, often movies that are hard to find or not available on DVD. — Bucky Sinister

Michael Ritchie's best known film is The Bad News Bears. The film is much bigger than his own legacy. While almost everyone can reference the film, only film buffs know who directed it. What's not very well known is Smile, a film about a small-time teenage beauty pageant that's better than Little Miss Sunshine and funnier than Waiting for Guffman, but like those two films combined. Keep an eye out for Melanie Griffith, when she still looked like the girl next door, pre-boob job that she got during the shooting of Bonfire of the Vanities. Read The Devil's Candy, Julie Salamon's book about the shooting of the movie, if you want to know more about that.
