In a nice bit of (probably unintentional) synergy with the recently released Finding Dory, in which he voices papa Clownfish “Marlin”, Netflix announced that they will be adding many of the films that Albert Brooks has written or directed to the service on Friday, July 1st. The surprise announcement – the streaming service usually releases flashy new additions to their stable with more advance notice – is perfect timing for anyone ready to spend their time chilling on the couch this weekend instead of getting sunburnt and watching fireworks go off for the 4th of July.
Anybody up for a day-long Albert Brooks-a-thon? If watching too many of them in a row gets you down, you can always go to the local cinema and get perked up a bit with his performance in Finding Dory. Just kidding, that will probably make you sob too.
