ISP issues? SB mentioned he liked NetFlix better than his PS3 stream. So must be working fine with others.
Do you have an issue streaming netflix to your computer?

How far is your router from your atv? What kind of router? Can you run a cat5 to test atv?

usually to fix this issue start then pause the movie for 5-15min and let it load/download to the device, then play it because the load is now far ahead of what your watching there should be no lag
EDIT: the iPhone does this sometimes for me on 3G I pause it for 1-3min and I'm good

It's like 15 feet away it's a wireless g... So Shane the new appletv downloads it when I start so if Wanna watch a movie just pause it and it will load???

You could always go get a new wireless-n router, they aren't that much these days. It'll give your iphone and ipad (maybe only one of the 2, not certain) a bit faster wifi connection too.
