I am a huge Netflix fan. "Netflix and Chill" is basically my marital mantra. There's nothing better than just cuddling up next to your partner, streaming something fantastic, and then falling blissfully asleep and inevitably drooling on their leg. My life is so glamorous. I doubt that I'll be doing anything differently during the Fourth of July, because, let's face it, we're parents and kids go to bed early. However, coming from a military family, I'm looking at different patriotic movies to watch on Netflix on July 4th, because if my kids are going to sleep through the fireworks, I can at least fuel my hope for the future by watching Bill Pullman murder some aliens.
There are actually a ton of patriotic movies on Netflix ranging from documentaries about Franklin D. Roosevelt to Disney's Miracle, which isabout our epic 1980 winter olympics hockey team. There's something for everyone, and surprisingly, they don't all include Tom Hanks or Bill Pullman. Some of the best patriotic movies to watch on Netflix on the Fourth of July might be challenging your opinions, or they might just be absolutely ridiculous movies that make you double over with laughter. No matter the movie, after getting through the picks on this list, you're sure to be proud to be an American, which is a refreshing feeling right now.
