If you love Andy Samberg’s goofy sense of humor: Hot Rod

The first Lonely Island movie wasn’t supposed to be a Lonely Island movie. Conceived as a Will Ferrell project, Hot Rod’s story about an amateur stuntman raising money for his abusive father’s surgery became a vehicle for Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer at the suggestion of Lorne Michaels. Although the movie was a commercial failure, it was still a funny as hell introduction to what the Lonely Island trio could do if given a wider canvas — which they’d do in Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. Available January 1.

Because it’s one of the best forking shows on TV: The Good Place

In one of the most baffling programming decisions this year, NBC decided to air the second season of The Good Place — one of the smartest comedies airing right now and also a heavily serialized story with lots of twists and turns — with a big ol’ winter hiatus right in the middle of its second season. That hiatus began in November with episode eight, “Derek,” and finally ends this week when “Leap to Faith” airs on January 4. This, of course, means you can catch it on Hulu the very next day — or watch it again. Tell everyone you know, because The Good Place is one of the best catch-up binges you could possibly recommend. Available January 5.

For vintage Paul Thomas Anderson: Punch-Drunk Love

When I think of Punch-Drunk Love, I don’t think about Adam Sandler. That’s not to say he isn’t phenomenal in it — he really is. But I mostly think about the colors. The rich blues and twinkling lights. The hopeless navy of Sandler’s well-worn suit. Punch-Drunk Love is a movie awash in color. A strange and sentimental work about a sad tchotchke salesman whose loneliness and anger issues both land him in trouble with gangsters and put him in the path of the love of his life, Punch-Drunk Love is one of director Paul Thomas Anderson’s most accessible films, a sweet romantic comedy that doesn’t feel like any romantic comedy you’ve seen. Available January 8.
