Don't be fooled when April 1 comes around, Netflix is actually removing some beloved films in TV shows next month in Canada, including a Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen movie, an Al Pacino hit and several Spider-Man films, while new shows, films and documentaries are released on the streaming site.

Before the Olsen twins were designing some of the most sought after clothing and accessories (we're dreaming of getting our hands on a Margaux bag from The Row), Millennials around the world grew up with their movies.

On April 1, the 2005 comedy film New York Minute, also starring Eugene Levy and Jared Padalecki, will be removed from the streaming site in Canada.

If Olsen twin comedies aren't your style, and you're more of a crime drama lover, you don't have much time left to watch the iconic 1983 Brian De Palma film Scarface, with Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer, before it leaves Netflix at the beginning of April.

For TV lovers, the comedy Community will end its streaming time on Netflix in Canada next month, while we still wait to see if the show's stars, including Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Danny Pudi, Donald Glover, Jim Rash, Yvette Nicole Brown, Ken Jeong and Gillian Jacobs, will actually come together for a reunion film.

For Spider-Man fans, a number of films based on the famed comic book character will be leaving Netflix next month.

This includes the 2002 Spider-Man movie with Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Willem Dafoe and James Franco, and their subsequent film, Spider-Man 2. Additionally, The Amazing Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.
