Whats New On Netflix Canada This Week October 1st 2021

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is now available to stream on Netflix Canada

It’s an awesome start to the new month on Netflix Canada with the addition of 82 new movies and TV shows over the past seven days. Here’s what’s new on Netflix Canada this week and the top 10s for October 1st, 2021.

First of all, here are the past week’s top highlights:


Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)

Director: Adam McKay
Genre: Comedy | Runtime: 94 Minutes
Cast: Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner

As one of Will Ferrell’s most famous roles, there are very few people who haven’t heard of the legend of Ron Burgundy.

In the male-dominated world of broadcasting, Ron Burgundy is San Diego’s top anchorman. But Burgundy’s life and career take a massive upheaval when the network decides to hire a woman as the new anchor.


Catch Me If You Can (2002)

Director: Steven Spielberg
Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama | Runtime: 141 Minutes
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Christopher Walken, Martin Sheen, Nathalie Baye

Across his career, Leonardi DiCaprio has earned himself numerous Academy Award nominations, so it comes as a huge surprise that his role as Frank Abagnale Jr. didn’t earn himself a well-deserved Oscar nom. An incredibly fun film, it’s easily one of the most underrated films of the careers of Di Caprio, Tom Hanks, and director Steven Spielberg.

After the divorce of his parents, Frank Abagnale Jr. runs away from home. With nowhere to call home, Frank uses his talents to become a skilled forger, which sees him become an Airline pilot for Pan Am, which catches the attention of FBI Agent Carl Hanratty who engages Frank in a game of cat and mouse across America.


Bruce Almighty (2003)

Director: Tom Shadyac
Genre: Comedy, Fantasy | Runtime: 101 Minutes
Cast: Jim Carrey, Jennifer Aniston, Morgan Freeman, Philip Baker Hall, Steve Carell

Jim Carrey has had an incredible career, but arguably his most famous roles and movies took place between 1993 and 2003. While he has had some fun roles since Bruce Almighty, it is arguably his last great memorial role.

Bruce, an aspiring reporter is tired of all his bad luck, believes that God hates him. But when Bruce meets the almighty, he is given the powers of God, in order to teach him just how difficult it is to run the world.
