Mark Wahlberg and Kevin Hart-led buddy comedy, Me Time, was released on the streaming service today and it’s risen right to the top of the Netflix movie charts at No. 1, despite rather negative reviews. Another new Netflix movie that has already a lot of eyes on it is Loving Adults, which premiered at No. 7 today. The film is a Danish thriller about what happens within a marriage after a husband gets caught after an affair. The rest of Saturday’s top 10 are familiar to days prior. Parallel realities romantic comedy Look Both Ways is holding up high at No. 2 along with true crime documentary Running With The Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee at No. 3. Animated musical Sing 2 is the only returning title to jump up a spot, going from the fifth to fourth spot as Day Shift, Uncharted and That’s Amor shuffle slightly down. The documentary film series about NFL player Manti Te'o, Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist, is falling the fastest, going from No. 3 to No. 6 in the matter of a day. Absent from the top 10 for the first time since its release last Friday is the erotic Polish phenomenon, The Next 365 Days.

New series Partner Track hit Netflix just yesterday and the brand new original from the streamer has entered trending TV with a No. 5 debut. Partner Track is a legal drama based on a novel of the same name by Helen Wan, starring Teen Wolf’s Arden Cho. Aside from lawyer Ingrid Yun taking Never Have I Ever’s spot (moving it to No. 7), the top 6 titles are unchanged from Friday. A lot of people with a Netflix subscription are still bingeing dramas Echoes, Selling the OC, High Heat and fantasy adaptation The Sandman. Fans of Stranger Things are still either catching up on Season 4 or rewatching this season’s big moments, like Max’s emotional “Running Up That Hill” scene.
