Your Turn

Favorite Thanksgiving movie. I vacillate between Planes Trains & Automobiles and Home For The Holidays.

The Detroit Lions football game or The Addams Family Values not big on these holidays.

Jennifer said...

I always catch a little Gone With The Wind on thanksgiving. And A Christmas Story

Smalls said...

Home for the Holidays and football. This year I'll probably be catching up on stuff on the DVR while drinking a single malt on the couch in my stretchy pants.

Tracey said...

I love to watch the original Miracle on 34th street on Thanksgiving night after everyone has gone home. It's the perfect start to the Christmas season.

Megley said...

Detroit Lions game and The Hebrew Hammer. It's technically a Christmas movie, but it works for me.

Farmgirl said...

Home for the Holidays for sure

Adventures in Babysitting. Not a literal holiday movie but its a family film.

Planes Trains and Automobiles. It is the Buckaroo Banzai of Thanksgiving movies.

Home for the Holidays hands down for me! I have actually said to my brother that if it weren't for being related I wouldn't even say hi on the street. I barely say hi to him now.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles....Those aren’t PILLOWS!

I agree 💯 %
True gem of a gentleman and a comic

The Ref is still a go to.
Dark but terrifically funny.

I haven't seen Trapped in Paradise anywhere since it was in the theatre? It had Nicolas Cage in it. Anyone know it?

J-Mo said...

Also, Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz in Paradise, PA.

I didn't even know there was such a thing as a Thanksgiving movie. *L* I remember seeing PT&A a long time ago and thinking it should have been funnier. That's all I've got.

Miracle on 34th Street.

I do not celebrate "holidays". I believe they are a cruel invention of humanity, because they exclude so many souls. Those who are alone, elderly, in poverty, grieving, experiencing homeless, hospitalized. Anyone who is suffering, tends to suffer more at 'the Holidays'.
When a holiday is positive for every single man, woman and child, then it will be 'a Holiday'.
As Phil Collins said.... Think twice...It's another day for you, in paradise.

GentleBreeze said...

Used to go see a movie after dinner. Planes, trains and autos. Steve looking at John while driving between the trucks - seeing the devil. Hahaha!

Mercy prosperity: Excellent comment. One could add in toxic relatives. Really toxic.

Retreat Hell! My neighbor was a member of the 7th ID east of Chosin , one Thanksgiving season in 1950 For three days they fought to keep the Chinese from taking Hagaru and preventing the Marines from being surrounded and destroyed.
Not everybody gets to spend Thanksgiving with their families.

I loved Home for the Holidays. Every bit of it. Such amazing writing.

Wasn't it a Jodie Foster directed flick?

A year or two ago Holly Hunter stayed in a hotel where I was working - very small place with just 14 rooms - I was so happy to find out she was a genuinely nice person - southern nice even. What a relief! I had met other celebrities and most of them were real demanding assholes. I also loved RDJr. who also, according to people who have known him forever, is a hilarious and nice person. Durning broke my heart with the slideshow in the basement sequence. I start crying just thinking about it. SUCH a good movie.

hortensie said...

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in my country.. 😥
But I imagine I would like to see 'What about Bob'

hortensie said...

Hey! You stole my handle? :D
Anyway, good choice.
Happy Thanksgiving (is it today?) when it's there!

Same 2 for me as well. SADSACK TERZIAK, SADSACK TERZIAK, SADSACK TERZIAK. Lmfao.

It has to be PT & A ...two best quotes:
[another driver is trying to alert them that they're driving on the wrong side of the highway]

Neal: He says we're going the wrong way...

Del: Oh, he's drunk. How would he know where we're going?

and of course:

Those aren't pillows!!
