Netflix has been killing it with movies lately and their latest action film looks like it could be the family-friendly movie hit they’ve been looking for. In Sleepover, Malin Ackerman and Ken Marino are a couple of parents who are hosting a sleepover for their kids when Ackerman’s secret past as a smuggler comes back to bite her, along with her former fiance, Joe Manganiello.
The movie looks like it’s equal parts Spy Kids and Adventures in Babysitting, with a little bit of Keeping Up With the Joneses thrown in for good measure. It’s not going to win an Oscar, but it feels like exactly the kind of late-summer semi-blockbuster type film that we could all get behind on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Get ready for a sleepover like no other! During a fun weekend sleepover with their best friends, two siblings discover that their seemingly normal stay-at-home mom Margot (Malin Akerman) is actually a former high-end thief in the witness protection program. When both their mom and dad (Ken Marino) are kidnapped and forced to pull one last job with an ex-flame of Margot’s (Joe Manganiello), the siblings must team up to rescue their parents over the course of one action-packed night that they’ll never forget. THE SLEEPOVER is on Netflix August 21.
