What We're Watching: Netflix's New April 1st Food Movies

By: Allison Milam

The guys behind House of Cards and Orange is the New Black have done it again. But this time around, they're swapping the polyester pantsuits of Capitol Hill and the aggressively orange jumpsuits of prison for something that really gets us going. For a captivating, edge-of-your seat, 73-minute drama, look no further than “ Rotisserie Chicken.”  In this most recent Netflix originally series, we laughed; we cried; we were reeled in with each sweaty revolution. We dare you not to finish this film to completion. And did we mention the costumes? A little trussing has never looked so good. According to the film’s description: “In the tradition of ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,’ witness a searing chronology-defying return to one’s origins that strokes the imagination.” We give it five stars. Searing, indeed. Rated: G.

And the foodie fixations don’t stop there. Netflix proves it doesn’t need to be a Sunday morning to witness the sizzling seduction of a slab of bacon either. With the Netflix Original “ Sizzling Bacon” comes a tantalizing tale of crisp edges and grease – lots and lots of grease. As the heat gears up, so too does the protagonist. According to the film description, “the boundaries of TV and time go up in smoke with this tasteful ‘Memento’-style puzzle that takes the viewer out of the fire and into the frying pan.” If you don’t make it to your computer to watch this one, prepare to get burned. Rated: G.

With blockbuster, food-filled flicks like these, we can’t wait to see what they have in store next.

Watch: Rotisserie Chicken and Sizzling Bacon on Netflix.
