Part 1: Must-Watch Thanksgiving Movies to Watch with Kids

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (1965)

What would a holiday celebration be without a Peanuts TV special to watch together after the festivities? This Emmy-winning episode is particularly adorable, combining all the Thanksgiving essentials: Football (or Charlie Brown’s pitiful attempt at it), delicious meals and, of course, a bit of bickering. The youngsters try to whip up a meal of their own, but Peppermint Patty is less than impressed with the menu of buttered toast, popcorn and jellybeans. Rated G. 

Free Birds (2013) 

Reggie (Owen Wilson) is the smartest gobbler in his flock. He knows his fellow turkeys are being fattened up for human consumption come Thanksgiving, though his dimwitted brethren are happily ignorant. Fortunately, fate puts our hero in the path of a muscular birdbrain (Woody Harrelson) with a magic doorknob that leads the duo to a time machine, which takes them back to the very first Thanksgiving. Rated PG. 

Grumpy Old Men (1993) 

An elderly pair of feuding neighbors who’ve delighted in insulting one another for five decades come to blows when they spot their attractive new neighbor on Thanksgiving Day. Ariel (Ann-Margret) becomes a love interest for both John (Jack Lemmon) and Max (Walter Matthau), intensifying the rivalry to hilarious effect—but when Max finds out that John is having some personal struggles and John has a health scare, the strength of their bond shines through. Rated PG-13. 

The New World (2005) 

This live-action take on the story of Pocahontas and the settlement of Jamestown, Virginia gives viewers a peek into the period when the first Thanksgiving took place. When English settlers come ashore on strange, new land, they begin to set up a colony in the “New World” to the dismay of the Native Americans who call it home. Captain John Smith (Colin Farrell) is captured and brought to Chief Powhatan, the father of young Pocahontas (Q’orianka Kilcher). Families will love the beautiful landscapes, celebrity appearances (look out for Christopher Plummer and Christian Bale) and the blossoming love story. Rated PG-13. 

Son-in-Law (1993) 

Stand-up comic, Pauly Shore, plays a geek called Crawl in this teen comedy that dramatizes one college student's homecoming over Thanksgiving break. After meeting innocent Rebecca at school in LA, Crawl gives her an edgy makeover and the two become fast friends. Rebecca shocks her farm-dwelling family when she brings her flamboyant friend (posing as her fiancĂ©) home to South Dakota for the holiday. The city boy definitely doesn’t fit in, but the locals (and Rebecca) might warm up to his wacky ways more than they expect. Watch out for some sexual innuendo that may not be appropriate for youngsters, but this goofy flick will get everyone giggling. Rated PG-13.

Miracle on 34th Street (1947) 

Sure, this is as classic a Christmas film as they come, but its jumping-off point is none other than the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in NYC! When Santa Claus gets tipsy before his annual ride on the parade float, he gets the boot—but his bearded replacement, Kris Kringle, be the real deal? His commitment to the job has all the kids in awe and sets off a media firestorm that ends up in a court of law. What a perfect way to close out Turkey Day and get the kids excited for Santa's visit! Rated G. 

Dutch (1991) 

To get to know his girlfriend’s son, blue-collar guy, Dutch (Ed O’Neill), offers to pick Doyle up from school in Atlanta to bring him home for Thanksgiving dinner in Chicago. The preppy kid turns out to be a piece of work, but a few mishaps during their cross-country journey, including a fireworks display gone wrong and run-ins with some interesting characters, end up bringing the two together. Rated PG-13. 

Addams Family Values (1993) 

When Gomez and Morticia welcome a son, Pubert, into their slightly disturbed family, jealous siblings Pugsley and Wednesday (a wonderfully devious Christina Ricci) plot to do away with the bundle of joy and are sent away to summer camp. Though this flick doesn’t take place during Turkey Day, the scene in which Wednesday hijack’s Camp Chippewas’s musical rendition of the first Thanksgiving is reason enough to watch. When the indigenous Americans (played by the outcast campers) revolt against the pilgrims, your whole gang will be delighted. Rated PG-13. 

The Blind Side (2009) 

When an African-American boy from a poor neighborhood is taken in by a wealthy Tenneessee woman, life changes for both of them. Thanks to Leigh Anne Touhy (Bullock) and her family, “Big Mike” Oher is given an opportunity to put his athleticism and protective instincts to use on the football field, eventually becoming a first-round NFL draft pick. A Thanksgiving Day scene when Big Mike causes the family to pause and appreciate their meal and one another is particularly touching—one that might even convince your family to flick off the game for a while next year. Rated PG-13.

Home for the Holidays (1995) 

This comedy/drama hybrid stars Holly Hunter as Claudia, a down-on-her-luck single mother who returns to her parents’ Baltimore home for a bit of comfort over the holidays. However, her dysfunctional family provides anything but. Her sister Joanne’s attitude and dramatic brother Tommy (Robert Downey Jr.) stir up trouble, and on top of it all, her daughter Kitt (Claire Danes) decides to spend the holiday with her boyfriend. This film is an after-dinner flick for families with kids on the older side, but is sure to draw some laughs. Rated PG-13.
