Grown Ups streaming into your computer or video game console before it reaches pay TV? It sounds like a dream, I know, but it's coming true. Netflix and Relativity Media have announced an agreement whereby the studio's releases would stream on the Netflick machines only a matter of months after DVD release--which is the time usually reserved for watching those shitty movies on HBO and Starz.

"Relativity has produced and financed some of the biggest and best films released in the last few years," Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in the statement, failing to mention that Relativity's 2010 releases include The Spy Next Door, Dear John, Bounty Hunter and Robin Hood. Now imagine a montage depicting families switching channels from HBO to their Netflix queues while "The Times They Are a-Changin'" plays. Wasn't that powerful and so true?
