question of the day: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving-themed movie?

Yesterday, the Online Film Critic Society — of which I am a member, and I serve on its Governing Committee — announced our favorite Thankgiving-themed movie (go here to learn which film we picked).

Now it’s your turn: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving-themed movie?

These are the movies we chose among:
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
Hannah and Her Sisters
Holiday Inn
Home for the Holidays
The House of Yes
The Ice Storm
Miracle on 34th Street
Mouse on the Mayflower
An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving
Pieces of April
Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Feel free to chose something else not on the list that I may have missed.

I didn’t want to think hard enough to pick something myself, but the Critic Society’s choice made me smile. That’s one of my favorites too, maybe Number One after all. Cheers, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Home for the Holidays. Hands-down favorite Thanksgiving movie.

Didn’t you do this one already? I mentioned Avalon last time.

::shrugs:: You picked the right one. It’s hard to imagine PT&A ever being topped in this particular (extremely small) genre. It might be… someday… but not any time soon.

It’s hysterical you let ThanksKilling into the running, though, hee. Was that your idea?

::shrugs:: You picked the right one. It’s hard to imagine PT&A ever being topped in this particular (extremely small) genre.

I prefer the 1947 version of Miracle on 34th Street for sentimental reasons even though it’s technically more of a Christmas movie. (Don’t get me started on why I dislike the John Hughes remake. I’d rather not go into it at this time.)

However, PT&A is a good second choice. As is Pieces of April.

I’m taking the fifth on the rest of the movies listed. Though I’m surprised that Addams Family Values didn’t get a honorary mention. Its take on Thanksgiving pageants was so MaryAnnish. Or would the proper adjective be Johansonian?
