Funny movies returned faster, Serious ones kept home longer?

Do you think the number of days you take to watch a movie and return the DVD to Netflix is an indication of that movie’s gravitas? Curious? Read on…


Some few weeks ago, The New Yorker reached out to FeedFliks for some data on Netflix rental patterns: specifically, they were interested in seeing if users tend to watch and return ‘light’ movies faster while they sit on ‘heavier’ titles for somewhat longer.

It turned out that there was something to their theory and that in fact a light-hearted movie like The Proposal was returned in an average of 9.6 days while a more serious movie like Gran Torino sat at home for 13.1 days. It’s a very interesting article and certainly worth reading, or, ironically enough, for bookmarking to read later.
