Last weekend (Feb. 16), Madame Web was the biggest release in theaters. The movie received a lot of buzz, but for all the wrong reasons. It's no secret that Madame Web is leading the race as the worst movie of the year (so far). If you haven't seen it, we highly suggest you wait for the streaming release, or just trust us on this one! To say last weekend was a disappointment is an understatement! But will the weekend of Feb. 23 be any better?

The big movie this weekend is Drive-Away Dolls, but why haven't we heard more about this movie? After all, it features a star-studded cast that includes Margaret Qualley and Pedro Pascal. What are critics (and audiences) saying about the film? We share all we know, below!

If you missed these movies in theaters when they premiered on the big screen, now is your chance to watch them from the comfort of your own home! Need more? You got it.

Sandy's 3 must-see movie picks: Drive-Away Dolls, Anyone But You, and All of Us Strangers

Drive-Away Dolls

Where to watch:

The movie is playing in theaters


Margaret Qualley, Geraldine Viswanathan, Beanie Feldstein

Quick synopsis:

BFFs Jamie and Marian decide to take a road trip to Tallahassee for a fresh start. Adventure kicks up a notch when a gang of criminals try to hunt them down.

Your guess is as good as mine for why Drive-Away Dolls is not being better promoted. In fact, if I didn't do these weekly movie lists, I may not have known about Drive-Away Dolls at all. Distributed by Focus Features, Drive-Away Dolls is directed by Ethan Coen.

The movie follows two best friends who couldn't be more different, but they find themselves in a similar place in life -- stuck and desperate for change. The friends rent out a car for an impromptu road trip to Tallahassee, but were given a vehicle reserved for another group, one that was hiding something valuable in the trunk. In addition to Qualley, Viswanathan, and Feldstein, Drive-Away Dolls also stars Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal, and Colman Domingo. Now, I don't know about you, but this is the movie I'll be watching over the weekend!

Anyone But You

Where to watch:

Still in select theaters as well as available to rent or buy on VOD


Sydney Sweeney, Glen Powell, and Alexandra Shipp

Quick synopsis:

Bea and Ben shared a wonderful night together, but it ends in bad terms. After bumping into each other again, will the two fight or rekindle? Or a little of both.

Anyone But You was received with mixed reviews from critics and audiences, but in my book, this is a great movie! Predictable? Sure. But most rom-coms are! When you tune in to watch a romantic comedy, you sorta know what to expect. That said, Anyone But You is a must-watch for a fun and entertaining time. Whether you watch the movie with friends or significant other, you'll enjoy it.

The movie follows Bea (Sweeney) and Ben (Powell) after abruptly ending things due to a misunderstanding. They don't think they'll see each other again, but it's a small world! Bea's sister is marrying one of Ben's best friends. Needless to say, they are not getting along and it threatens the wedding event. Will they ruin the trip or realize they were meant to be? You know the answer, but watch it anyway! Anyone But You is still playing in select theaters, but you can rent or purchase the movie on VOD, such as Prime Video.

All of Us Strangers

Where to watch:

Streaming on Hulu


Andrew Scott, Paul Mescal, Jamie Bell

Quick synopsis:

After a chance encounter with Harry, the rhythm of Adam's life changes and everything is not as it seems in the romantic fantasy.

All of Us Strangers is my third pick for the weekend, even though I have not seen it. This movie just escaped my radar so I missed it when it premiered on the big screen. Over at Rotten Tomatoes, the movie has a fresh score of 96% from critics and a 92% from audiences. Now, I know better than to blindly believe critics, but with these high scores from both critics and fans? I'm sold!

The romantic fantasy follows Adam (Scott) and Harry (Mescal), neighbors who bump into each other one night, and a relationship quickly blooms. But not everything is as it seems. Please note that the movie is rated R for sexual content, strong language, and some drug use. Watch it on Hulu.
