If this is true, it is absolutely crazy!

Netflix has thousands of watchable movies on its streaming service!
Not only does the service have a healthy amount of critically and commercially successful films ready to be streamed, but its list of original titles is growing at a rapid pace!
So with all the movies on the site, we were a bit surprised when we learned what title was Netflix's most watched movie ever!
Adam Sandler's Western comedy The Ridiculous 6!
Sarandos explained that the film, which premiered less than a month ago, has become the most-watched title in Netflix's library of both original and licensed films! He said:
"The Ridiculous Six, by way of example, in the first 30 days on Netflix it's been the most-watched movie in the history of Netflix. It's also enjoyed a spot at #1 in every territory we operate in, and in many of them it's still #1."
Aside from Netflix's intense promotion of the film, its rapidly-growing user base is larger than ever before — so a LOT more people are available to watch today than there were last year.
Whether or not you're a fan of Sandler's low-brow comedy, it's hard to argue the success of his cross-generational appeal! (Despite not-so-great reviews!)
