Netflix’s Top 10 list has been dominated by several different movies over the past week. That span of time included #Alive spending one day in the #1 slot, followed by The Babysitter: Killer Queen for two days and Pets United for its current five-day streak.
But none of those movies have caught up to the project that’s garnered more points than any other film this month on Netflix. In fact, that movie took over the #1 spot on the Monthly Top 10 today.
That film is Love, Guaranteed, which came in ninth place today on the Daily Top 10. That showing brought the romantic comedy’s monthly total to 96 points—just slightly ahead of the movie that had held the #1 position for the entire month, The Smurfs.
Here are the current ten most popular movies on Netflix in September. The point totals are determined thanks to a measuring system we put together for the Daily Top 10 lists:
- Love, Guaranteed – 96 points
- The Smurfs – 94 points
- Due Date – 84 points
- #Alive – 65 points
- The Babysitter: Killer Queen – 62 points
- The Social Dilemma – 60 points
- Pets United – 59 points
- Puss in Boots – 52 points
- The Boss Baby: Get That Baby! – 45 points
- Cuties – 45 points
Today marks the 14th consecutive day that Love, Guaranteed has appeared on the Daily Top 10. That run included five straight days in the #1 position and two more days in second place. Since September 8—the movie’s final day atop the Daily Top 10 rankings—it’s been a slow and steady climb down the charts for the film. And today marks the romantic comedy’s poorest showing yet.
Still, Love, Guaranteed seems in pretty good shape to finish highly on the Monthly Top 10 list once September ends. This month has marked the weakest showing for movies on Netflix yet this year. Last month, films like Project Power, Mr. Peabody & Sherman and The Lost Husband all eclipsed 130 points, and three more movies managed to accumulate at least 100 points. The same story was true for months like July (when four movies achieved 100 points), June (three movies), May (three movies), April (three movies) and March (four movies).
So with The Smurfs off the Daily Top 10 and Love, Guaranteed dangerously close to following suit, we could have a month where no movie manages to hit 100 points. Pets United could pull it off if its #1 streak continues—but that remains to be seen.
On the 2020 rankings, Love, Guaranteed currently sits in 33rd place, tied with Life As We Know It, and just ahead of movies like Coffee & Kareem, Work It and John Henry. If the film starring Rachael Leigh Cook and Damon Wayans Jr. can stay on the charts for a little bit longer, then it’ll overtake movies like The Nut Job, Fatal Affair and Feel the Beat.
