After everyone’s stomach is full, the dishes have been put away and the second serving of dessert has been had, what’s the perfect way to cap off the day? How about with a movie that celebrates Thanksgiving in its own special way?
“Planes, Trains & Automobiles” has to be one of the best and brightest holiday-themed flicks in memory. The team of Steve Martin and John Candy is nothing short of brilliant. As the pair struggle to make their way home in time for Thanksgiving, hilarity ensues.
Other fun holiday flicks to feast on include “Pieces of April,” starring Katie Holmes as a young girl estranged from her family, who decides to host Thanksgiving dinner for all of them. Or, look to the Woody Allen dramedy “Hannah and Her Sisters” that centers on three sisters and the men who pass through their lives.
If you’re looking for an offbeat, very nontraditional movie, then “House of Yes” is the perfect pick. With Parker Posey as a Jackie Kennedy wannabe who’s obsessed with her brother, this one’s definitely not for the straight and narrow comedy viewer.
