Top 10 Movies On Netflix In The U.S. - September 23, 2022

Mark Wahlberg’s banner year just keeps on going, as Father Stu is once again at the top of Netflix’s Top 10 Movies in the U.S. heading into the weekend. It’s beginning to look like Wahlberg’s passion project will have the staying power Uncharted did after making its streaming debut in August. Also staying put from yesterday is the 2022 Netflix original movie Do Revenge, which is also holding on strong.

  • 1. Father Stu
  • 2. Do Revenge
  • 3. Minions & More 1
  • 4. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
  • 5. Despicable Me 2
  • 6. This is the End
  • 7. Sing 2
  • 8. I Used to Be Famous
  • 9. Despicable Me
  • 10. Morbius

As you can see, the real standouts on the list today are all the Illumination titles, specifically those from the Despicable Me franchise. The Top 5 alone features the short-film collection Minions & More 1 and Despicable Me 2. Then there is 2010’s Despicable Me, aka one of the best movies on Netflix, as well as the 2021 musical comedy Sing 2, which seems like it’ll be on the list until Netflix pulls it from the library.
