When both their mom and dad (Ken Marino) are kidnapped and forced to pull one last job with an ex-flame of Margot’s (Joe Manganiello), the siblings must team up to rescue their parents over the course of one action-packed night that they’ll never forget.”
Netflix’s upcoming schedule also includes Sabrina Carpenter’s “Work It” dance-troupe movie on August 7th. That film features Carpenter, Liza Koshy, Keiynan Lonsdale, and Drew Ray Tanner. Carpenter’s also appeared in the Netflix original comedy “Tall Girl.”
The description for “Work It” reads, “When Quinn Ackerman’s (Carpenter) admission to the college of her dreams depends on her performance at a dance competition, she forms a ragtag group of dancers to take on the best squad in school…now she just needs to learn how to dance.”
