The French Comedy Taking Over Netflix's Top 10

One of the most significant advantages Netflix has to offer is the power to find films and TV shows produced around the globe. Unless you live next to an artsy movie theater, it may be challenging to find such projects, but with Netflix, they're available at the click of a button. It's led to a lot of global successes, such as "Squid Game" and "Hellbound," and now, another non-English property is making waves on the platform — "Spoiled Brats."

The French comedy follows three spoiled-rotten kids, who one day discover that all of their money has been cut off. The ruse is that the funds are still there; it's just that dear, old dad has decided to cut them off so that they can learn the meaning of a dollar. Suffice to say, shenanigans ensue, but everyone walks away, having learned a valuable lesson. Think of it as an international version of "Schitt's Creek" and get ready to laugh your butt off at the flick that's already made its way into Netflix's Top 10 Films.

Spoiled Brats offers a fun distraction

It's a lot of fun watching three characters who are used to getting everything they want suddenly stripped of the one thing they defined themselves around. And at just 95 minutes in length, it's suitable to watch at any time you feel like laughing after a hard day's work. 

The common consensus among critics is that "Spoiled Brats" offers fun, bingeable viewing, even if it's unlikely it'll last in the zeitgeist particularly long. Jordan Russell Lyon of Ready Steady Cut had some positive things to say about the film, including "It may not be perfect in every single way, and for instance, a certain amount of leeway has to be taken with certain moments of the film. But as a whole, it's highly enjoyable and should make the perfect entertainment for the night."

Lyon goes on to mention how it offers good fun for the entire family with some decent lessons to impart on the way. It sounds like something to watch with your children when you want to show them that money isn't everything. That's a worthwhile message we could all remind ourselves of once in a while.
