    "Not everyone wants to watch a football game on Thanksgiving"

    Oh, I don't know. I can't think of anything better than watching an 0-11 team getting killed by a 11-1 team. Talk about a compelling match-up.

    I’ve always considered Addams Family Values a Thanksgiving movie. (The play they put on in summer camp is about Thanksgiving.)

    Why is Willy Wonka a Thanksgiving movie? The editor noted that Home Alone is always shown around Thanksgiving. Is the same true of Wonka? Or is there a Thanksgiving scene in there that i can’t remember. Isn’t it set mostly in England where they dont even celebrate Thanksgiving? I really do like this film. Just don’t see how it came to be a Thanksgiving movie.

    Loved Pains Trains and Automobiles. John Candy was awesome in that… “Where’s your other hand? Between two pillows… Those aren’t pillows!!

      Anything with Ed o Neill in it gets my thumbs up. I do have some trivia concerning Ed. In the movie “Deliverance” He had a short role when the character played by Burt Reynolds is in the hospital with serious injuries. The security guard who is guarding his room is in fact a young Ed O’ Neill. Look it up and find the movie and watch it. Its hard to believe !!!

    I don’t know if I’d consider Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory a Thanksgiving movie, but your other options are pretty good. A few friends I work with at DISH really like Pieces of April and Home for the Holidays, so I was thinking of watching those this year. I can rent them from DISH’s Blockbuster @Home service, which ships fast enough that I’ll have them in plenty of time for Thanksgiving. Thanks for the ideas.
