Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star

One of the most exciting parts of being a Netflix member is the monthly reveal of what movies will be added to (and taken away from) the service. That may not be true, but we’re going to assume it is for the sake of this story. Now, comedy website Break.com has devised a way to recreate that thrill, but without all of the hassle of giving a few dollars to the fat cats at Netflix every month. As part of its new-ish—and free—“Break Movies” initiative (which already features titles from Lionsgate), the site has signed a deal with Paramount to stream a rotating selection of films from the studio’s library that will change every month.

The initial selection—which is available now—includes such big-name hits as the first three entries in the Paranormal Activity series (the good ones!), Top Gun, Total Recall, Serpico, and the award-winning documentary Waiting For “Superman.” Right this second, you can watch all of those movies for free. Isn’t that great? Well, get ready to be even more excited, because the list of movies also includes peerless masterpieces like Bloodsport, Drillbit Taylor, Rat Race, The Devil Inside, and even—you’re not going to believe this—Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, a movie so forgettable that we had it confused with Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star. Apparently those are different movies. We had no idea! So what’s Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star? Let’s all head to Break and find out!
