Get ready, because Netflix is back with some incredible movies for July. The range of genres is downright flawless, and we can't wait to get our eyes on this content. Every month, Netflix announces its latest lineup of movies and series that's headed to the site, and it seems to be getting better and better. From horror to animated children's movies, there is a broad range of titles for anyone in the family to enjoy. July is the month of love, apparently, because there are so many romantic titles coming to the streaming service. These movies will be perfect for a stay-at-home date night, which is exactly what we need right now. 

Netflix has taken over all of our lives recently, and it seems like we keep running out of new movies to watch. Luckily, the platform is always on the hunt for new content and updates monthly, so we can never get bored. We combed through the list of everything coming this July, and found all of the best movies for tired moms to watch alone, with their partners, or something to throw on for the kids. 

Last month we saw some fan-favorites arrive to the platform, and leave. Some of the most highly anticipated flicks are Netflix Originals. While we're always looking for a new series to check out, sometimes, a movie night is exactly what will help us unwind. So grab your favorite drink, some popcorn, and pop on one of these flicks when they hit Netflix next month. Here are 20 movies perfect for any night of the week or any occasion that are coming to Netflix in July 2020.
