Planes/Trains is great - a true classic, to be sure.

But Home for the Holidays is one of those little films that speaks to many people, including me, in a very direct way. It's so.....true - no other word for it.

Charles Durning's "Grace" in "Home for..." is easily one of the funniest moments ever committed to film.

How could you possibly leave "Alice's Restaurant" off the list ??

"Planes, Trains..." & "Home for the Holidays" are both great. I also enjoy Gurinder ("Bend It Like Beckham") Chadha's "What's Cooking?" Four different families, living at four corners of the same suburban intersection, are celebrating Thanksgiving in four different ways. Very entertaining, heartwarming & surprising, "What's Cooking?" is definitely worth a look.

What sick misanthrope would actually click on "The Ice Storm"--it's one of the most depressing movies ever made!

Personally my favorite movie that deals with Thanksgiving (along with many other holidays) is "Holiday Inn." I love that they have that reference to the date-change for Thanksgiving that occurred in the '30s (?) and that whole "sittin' here with the mis'ry" exchange in the kitchen.

"Hannah and Her Sisters" is the best Thanksgiving movie.
