Adam Sandler's not to everyone's taste, but if you don't mind turning your brain off and indulging in some slapstick and pee jokes, Grown Ups (2010) might be for you. Sandler stars along with David Spade, Kevin James, Chris Rock and Rob Schneider as childhood pals who get together as adults -- and while they may be older, they're not necessarily more mature. Sometimes, dumb laughs are just what you need after a long week. Grown Ups is new to Hulu this week.

Want something more elegant? Gemini (2018) stars Zoë Kravitz as movie star Heather Anderson, with Lola Kirke as her personal assistant Jill. Things start to get mysterious and murderous in the high life of Hollywood, and John Cho (of Harold and Kumar and Star Trek fame) shows up as a police detective who's determined to get to the truth.

Gemini comes to Hulu on Saturday.

20th Century Fox

New to Hulu last week is Love, Simon (2018), a romantic comedy-drama about a gay teen, directed by prolific TV director-producer Greg Berlanti. It's based on the 2015 young-adult novel, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, by Becky Albertalli.

"Like the chorus of a latter-day Taylor Swift song, (Love, Simon) will lift you up, goddammit, and good luck trying to stop it," wrote Vulture critic Emily Yoshida.

In another recent Hulu arrival, Keira Knightley plays the beloved French novelist Colette in the 2018 film of the same name. New York Observer critic Rex Reed calls Colette, "the most important woman writer in the history of French literature" and says the film "is the best and most lavishly appointed, gorgeously photographed period movie in years."

Also new on Hulu recently: Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018), the third and final film in the teen sci-fi dystopian saga.

And On Chesil Beach (2018), stars Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle as a British couple whose sexual inexperience leads to disaster.
