Bad News Will Smith Fans: Here’s Everything Leaving Netflix in March

Will Smith should probably beware the Ides of March. Spring is going to start off rocky for the Fresh Prince since next month Netflix plans to axe several of his films. So what’s leaving Netflix in March? Basically TED Talks and Will Smith movies. Make sure to check out the full list below!

Hitch (Leaving 3/1/16)
Will Smith's role in the romantic comedy Hitch isn't his best performance (Pursuit of Happyness) or his worst (Wild Wild West), but it is the most adorable. Will Smith originally suggested Kevin James for the role of Albert because he was a fan of his show, The King of Queens.
Netflix's Alternatives: Along Came Polly, Meet the Parents
Men in Black II (Leaving 3/1/16)
Hitch isn't the only Will Smith movie being knocked off of Netflix either. The 2002 follow-up to Men in Black will be removed next month. Like in the first film, the name of Agent J's love interest starts with the letter "L" (Laurel and Laura). This was possibly an intentional allusion to Superman which featured female leads with similar "L" names (Lois Lane and Lana Lang).
Netflix's Alternatives: Hellboy, National Treasure
American Pie (Leaving 3/1/16)
American Pie is arguably the greatest movie named after a Don McLean song. The high school comedy spawned 7 sequels and spin-offs and taught a generation of boys that it's not okay to be sexual adventurous with pastries.
Netflix's Alternatives: Staten Island Summer, Ridiculous 6

Jumanji (Leaving 3/1/16)
While Tom Hanks was initially considered for the role of Alan Parrish, the part eventually went to Robin Williams. In Zulu, the word "Jumanji" allegedly means "many effects," alluding to the many exciting and possibly dangerous outcomes associated with the game.
Netflix's Alternatives: Hook, Swordfish
