Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. You feast; you nap; you watch some football and then eat again. After your second (or third) helping of dinner, why not cozy up on the couch (because, let’s face it, you don’t really want to be anywhere else) with some family and binge watch while you digest? You may think that there aren’t many options for “Thanksgiving movies,” but there are actually quite a few, whether they are about the holiday or simply take place around the holiday. So unbutton that top button, grab one more piece of pie and check out some of these.

If you haven’t seen Dutch (1991), starring Ed O’Neill, I am not sure what rock you’ve been camping under, but come on out and click “play.” This is a great family flick – very funny with a serious note – about a broken and dysfunctional family. Dutch attempts to reunite a boy and his mother for the Thanksgiving holiday and runs into a few snags along the way. This is a feel-good film and appropriate for everyone, though it is rated PG-13 for some language. The classic ’80s flick, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, is a comedy pairing John Candy (playing an annoying salesman) and Steve Martin (portraying a somewhat uptight guy) on a hilarious trip home for Thanksgiving.

If you have some younger kids around for Thanksgiving, Free Birds is a great animated option. It has some humor geared towards adults, too, and is about a couple of turkeys who aim to take turkey off the dinner list for Thanksgiving. They have to work together to make this happen, despite the fact they don’t get along at all.

If you don’t have a kids table to worry about and have a flair for the dramatic that doesn’t include your boyfriend’s mom getting drunk and saying inappropriate things to your Uncle Bob, why not watch Rocky, simply because in the first movie, Rocky says to Adrian, “To you it’s Thanksgiving; to me it’s Thursday.” Good enough reason for me to binge watch as many Rocky films as I can find on Netflix, how about you? And Netflix just happens to have most of them now, for which I am pretty thankful.

Now … please pass the couch potatoes.
