Bad Boys for Life is now available to stream on Netflix UK

With over fifty titles added to the UK library this week, it’s a fun and busy run-up to Christmas for subscribers. Here’s what’s new on Netflix UK this week for December 17th, 2021.

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

Bad Boys for Life (2020)

Director: Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah
Genre: Action, Comedy, Crime | Runtime: 124 Minutes
Cast: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton

It’s been seventeen years in between the explosive Bad Boys sequel and Bad Boys for Life. While Mike and Marcus are older, it remains to be seen if they are wiser, however, it’s great to see the hilarious pairing of Smith and Lawrence on screen again.

When a mother and son pair of drug lords wreak havoc on the streets of Miami, it’s up to detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett to save the day.

Archer (Season 12)

Seasons: 12 | Episodes: 116
Genre: Animation, Action, Comedy | Runtime: 22 Minutes
Cast: H. Jon Benjamin, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Chris Parnell, Aisha Tyler

FXX’s long-standing animated series has for years now been one of the highlights of the year for new arrivals on Netflix UK.

After awakening from his coma, Sterling Archer is back to being one of the world’s best worst super spies, but the landscape of the spy world is changing when a new agency, the IIA, threatens to take away all of the jobs.

Russel Howard: Lubricant (Limited Series) N

Seasons: 1 | Episodes: 2
Genre: Stand Up | Runtime: 60 Minutes

In March 2020 Russel Howard had just started his world tour, but thanks to Covid, the entire world was brought to a standstill. With a frontline working wife, a 41-year-old Russel found himself going back to his childhood home and staying with his family, the constant source of inspiration for his comedy. Episode 1 is his fantastic return to the stage post-lockdown, and episode 2 is Russel sharing what life was like during lockdown.
