Best Movies Coming to Paramount+ in November 2022 – MovieWeb

Paramount+ is focused on three big TV series in November, but they still have two original movies and a bevy of newly arriving old classics to watch.
In all honesty, Paramount+ is having a fairly quiet November. Perhaps they want to focus their resources on a few big new TV series in November: the Sylvester Stallone crime show Tulsa King, a new Transformers show, and a reboot of Criminal Minds. If that's the case, it's certainly understandable that there are only a few new movies coming to the streaming platform in November.
However, they will be airing the Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 24th, which is always a laid-back delight to have on while chopping onions, basting turkeys, and generally juggling ten things in the kitchen. They will also have several holiday-focused titles, from Robbie the Reindeer to Frosty Returns, along with a new, wonderfully diverse selection of older films from Paramount Pictures. Several adaptations of A Christmas Carol will be added in November, alongside a slew of classic films such as Footloose, Clueless, Forrest Gump, Dr. No, High Fidelity, Minority Report, The Crow, Titanic, The Three Amigos, and the hilarious Naked Gun movies. Below are the best of the rest, along with a few new originals.
Something Wild is one of the many older films coming to Paramount+ on Nov. 1st. This underrated '80s classic from director Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia) is just downright fun. In an exhilarating, non-stop narrative, a punk rock woman (Melanie Griffith) notices an uptight businessman (Jeff Daniels) walking out on his bill without paying. She picks him up and takes him along on an epic road trip of booze and sex and back to her high school reunion, where she needs him to pretend to be her husband.
Little does she know, her psychotic ex-boyfriend is out of prison, and does not take kindly to this. The entire cast is incredible, but it's especially the late, great Ray Liotta as the menacing ex who steals the show as an intimidating scumbag. With wonderful music, colorful cinematography, and a suspenseful twist, Something Wild deserves more recognition.
With Martin McDonagh's new film The Banshees of Inisherin in theaters and receiving critical acclaim, now is a good time to look back on the oddball black sheep of his filmography, Seven Psychopaths. While not as efficiently plotted as his other films (In Bruges and Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri), Seven Psychopaths is still a great deal of fun and often hilarious.

The film sees a down-on-his-luck writer (Colin Farrell) become entangled in a dognapping plot gone awry, as the owner turns out to be psychotic crime lord. With an amazing ensemble cast (Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, and Tom Waits are all phenomenal), Seven Psychopaths deserves a reevaluation.
Widely misunderstood at the time of its release, Paul Verhoeven's film Starship Troopers is an action-packed sci-film that feels as if it had been made by right-wing propagandists in the fascist future. A perfect military satire, Starship Troopers follows a group of muscled soldiers as they take on a swarm of alien bugs determined to wipe out humanity. Parodying patriotism, nationalism, xenophobia, conservatism, and warmongering, Starship Troopers is subtly hilarious, with some wonderful creature design and gruesome effects to boot.
Paul Thomas Anderson's most recent (and most personal) film, Licorice Pizza is a gorgeous, nostalgic, quirky rom-com set in a hazy 1970s California. The acclaimed film, which follows a teenager's crush on an older woman, was a box office bomb despite making most critics' top ten lists, and is due for an audience resurgence.
Fans of the Boogie Nights and There Will Be Blood director's work may be surprised by the sweet intimacy and quiet character study of the film, but it's a refreshing anomaly in Anderson's filmography (aside from the music, which is just as excellent here as in any of his movies).
Blue's Clues was a beloved kids show for many, even if it only ran for six seasons. The past few years has seen a resurgence in interest toward the adorable blue puppy and his human friends — people keep wondering what happened to Steve (he's fine), the still-running Blue's Clues & You reboot has been doing well since 2019, and now a feature-length film is being released, 26 years after the show began.

Blue's Big City Adventure will probably be perfect for the kids who love the reboot, while also triggering some warm nostalgia in their parents, who are likely familiar with the late '90s original. While Blue looks a lot different than he did in the old Blue's Clues show, his time spent discovering New York City without his handy dandy notebook still has some Millennials excited about the movie.
Also produced by Nickelodeon, the confusingly titled Fantasy Football is a new family film that's sure to bring together fathers and daughters (or any sports-loving family members). The movie finds Callie (Marsai Martin, so great in Little) magically able to control her father when playing the video game Madden NFL 23.
Her father (Omari Hardwicke from Army of the Dead) is an NFL journeyman who has been going through the motions, but when Callie plays the video game, she can make him do anything on the football field, leading to incredible success and a lot of secrecy, comedy, and father-daughter bonding.
