Everything that's good and bad about what's coming and going from Netflix in May.

Every month, Netflix makes a whole bunch of it's subscribers extremely happy by adding great movies and super-addictive television shows. At the same time, it makes a bunch of other people super bummed out by yanking away their security blankets. Here's your guide to who's what and why:

Who's Happy?

Fans of unrelenting chipperness. Reese Witherspoon and her enormous tooth-filled smile began wheedling their way into America's heart 14 years ago with Legally Blonde, which—along with its less-inspired but equally zippy follow-up, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde—begins streaming 24/7 on May 1.

Beard enthusiasts and duck haters. You might not realize it, but at this very moment, several close friends and family members are fist-pumping themselves into muscle spasms after learning that beginning May 14, they can start watching the duck-killing exploits of the Robertson family on Duck Dynasty around the clock.


People who think history isn't bloody enough. If there's one thing that very few people say about World War II, it's that it wasn't quite violent enough for their tastes. Quentin Tarantino is that rare exception, which is why he tweaked reality in order to make his film Inglourious Basterds even more cringe-inducingly gory. Like-minded fans will get to enjoy his end product starting May 22.


Who's Sad?

Fans of emotionless killing machines. Unfortunately, they're losing RoboCop on May 1, the newest James Bond film Skyfall on May 5, and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement on May 3.


Automatic pilots. For one brief moment in time, the world cared about the adventures of non-sentient aircraft navigation systems. Hell, one even got an onscreen BJ. That moment has long-since passed, and Airplane!, the film that made it all possible, is even being wiped away from Netflix on May 1.


Who's Confused?

People who are deeply afraid of reanimated rodents. On the one hand, somebody finally made a movie with them in mind. On their other, they're never going to sleep again once Zombeavers begins streaming on May 19.
