The Best Things on Hulu Streaming This Month_1

Universal Pictures

This underrated dark comedy from Danny Boyle follows two angels on the case of cementing a potential romantic connection. The two prospective lovers are Cameron Diaz’s young heiress and Ewan McGregor’s desperate kidnapper. Silly, funny, and filled with romantic capers this outrageous lo-fi flick is non-stop fun and has a stacked cast featuring Diaz, McGregor, alongside Stanley Tucci, Holly Hunter, and more.

Tank Girl (May 1st)

United Artists

Rachel Talalay’s brilliant adaptation of the classic British comics is a must watch. Predating the R-rated madness of Deadpool and Birds of Prey. Tank Girl is an entertaining and engaging watch that still surprises today. Lori Petty stars as the titular badass, who’s trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world ruled by despotic corporations… sound familiar? We’re not saying that Tank Girl is more relevant now than ever…. okay, maybe we are.

Universal Soldier (May 1st)

TriStar Pictures

Need some mindless action in your life? Of course you do. Then there is no better time to enjoy the pleasures of Universal Soldier. The Dolph Lundgren, Jean Claude Van Damme smash launched a sprawling franchise and is still incredibly fun to watch to this day. The story centers on a dead soldier who is resurrected by the secret military program that gives the movie its name. Universal Soldier is a bombastic and ridiculous ’90s action movie that works as the perfect distraction from 2020.

Demolition Man (May 1st)

Warner Bros.

Speaking of perfect distractions, Demolition Man is also joining the Hulu roster. A tough crime cop and a drug lord are frozen in cryostasis in an attempt to stop a drug war. When the cop is defrosted he finds that the world is now a futuristic Utopia. But it won’t stay that way for long if he doesn’t find the drug lord he was imprisoned with. Over the top, weirdly prescient, and a whole lot of fun, Demolition Man is a great watch.
