    Great choice!  I have to default to "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving"--can't go wrong with Charlie!

    Home for the Holidays... priceless. What a disfunctional, yet functional, loving family looks like.

    When I was young, there was a movie, PBS or an after school special, with someone dressed as a large turkey running around.  It was in the late 70's or early 80's and was very popular for a few years.  Within the context of the movie, we were supposed to believe that it was an actual turkey.  Regardless, "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" and Charlie Brown are both great.  Of course, "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" has an unfortunate score which we will have to forgive, as it was the 80's.

    ThanksKilling. HANDS DOWN the best Thanksgiving film EVER. Read my hub on it, if you like, but just know that it is amazing and everyone should see it.

    In Addams Family Values, there is a children's play re-enacting the first Thanksgiving that ends in the destruction of an entire summer camp.  So that gets my vote.

    Just watched "Pieces of April" and liked it. . . predictable but uplifting.  I could almost smell the New York walk-up apartment.

    The Thanksgiving Treasure. It's about an old hermit with a horse. I believe it's one of the Addie Mills stories.
