“The Impossible” is the most popular movie on Netflix, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.
The 2012 movie stars Tom Holland, Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts as a family vacationing in Thailand in 2004 when a tsunami hits. Surviving together becomes a near-impossible feat.
A new Netflix holiday romantic comedy called “Operation Christmas Drop” earned second place. The movie tells the story of two people who meet on an Air Force base and debate the merits of a real-life annual humanitarian mission in which toys are dropped from airplanes to places in need.
The only other Netflix movie in the top five is another Christmas rom-com called “Holidate.” That stars Luke Bracey and Emma Roberts as a fake couple who slowly become a real couple. It earned a 45% on Rotten Tomatoes.
And finally, the 2009 punchline “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” earned the 10th-place spot. That received a 34% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is actually higher than I expected, given all the vitriol it received at the time.
