In April, Netflix dropped a load of fierce grown-up movies like “Scarface” and “Seven.” But it also included a mix of fun shows like “Bad Boys” and “Along Came Polly.”
So I guess we will forgive Netflix for bringing us a slim lineup of movies to watch after the kids go to bed this May.
But we do have some winners, such as “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “The Bourne Ultimatum” and “Mamma Mia!”
Netflix did better for shows we can watch with our kids. You can find the list we put together for family viewing here.
For a full listing of May Netflix releases, check out this USA TODAY story here.

Former FBI agent Will Graham (Ed Norton ) agrees to come out of retirement to catch a killer known at the Tooth Fairy.
