Netflix will remove several films from its service this month.

A number of movies and TV shows leave the streaming platform every month because of licensing agreements. According to its website, Netflix considers the availability of the rights to the title, how popular it is in a region and how much it costs to license when deciding which films and series to retain.

More than 40 films will no longer be available on the website after this week, according to the Independent. Here's a list of 10 of the best movies leaving Netflix this week so subscribers can watch them before they're taken down.

1. “Big Momma’s House” (2000)

“Big Momma’s House” is a classic action-comedy that stars Martin Lawrence as FBI agent Malcolm Turner, who decides to impersonate Southern granny Big Momma. The film garnered $174 million at the box office when it was released in 2000.

The movie, which is set to leave Netflix Friday, also stars Paul Giamatti, Nia Long, Jascha Washington and Terrence Howard.

2. “The Duchess” (2008)
