It's hard to believe that February is already here. If you're anything like us, you've likely already fallen off your New Year's resolutions and are glad that dry January is over. And what better way to introduce a nightly glass or two of wine back into your life than with the latest crop of Netflix streaming options.

This month's original content boasts an impressive groups of A-listers. You'll catch stars like Jake Gyllenhaal (in Velvet Buzzsaw), Natasha Lyonne (in Russian Doll), Ellen Page, Mary J. Blige and Kate Walsh (in The Umbrella Academy) and many more throughout the month. Lovers of classic films will be satisfied as well, as John Hughes' beloved Sixteen Candles and the entire Jaws saga will become available for your viewing pleasure.

If you had big plans for an Anne Hathaway themed movie marathon including either Ella Enchanted or Disney's The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, you'd better get on it. Those two films, along with about a dozen others, will make their exit on the first of the month, and plenty more biting the dust in the weeks following.

Below, the movies and shows we're marking our calendars for. After you check those out, make sure to read through the complete list of everything coming – and going – in February.
