Take Ten: Thanksgiving Movies

We all know that there are movies that feature Halloween, and we could all probably watch a different Christmas movie every day of the year. But, what about the major holiday that is sandwiched between (and I’m not talking about Veterans’ Day – there are more than enough war movies to satisfy any craving). Thanksgiving is sometimes left out of the holiday movie craze, and that seems crazy. Think about all the things that make Thanksgiving ripe for a brilliant comedy (or drama): family reunions, cooking, traveling, family issues, football, fall weather, and more family!

Well, if the fourth Thursday in November makes you less keen on seeing your relations, check out one of these movies for a taste of someone else’s Turkey Day drama.
