Top 10 Thanksgiving Comedy Movies
Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987)
Steve Martin is Neal Page, an easily excitable marketing exec who has to fly home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his wife and kids. But a freak snowstorm leaves him stranded in New York and stuck with a optimistic, loud-mouth played by John Candy, who becomes his only hope of getting back home in time. John Hughes wrote, produced and directed this sentimental slapstick comedy that’s become a classic Thanksgiving movie.
Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)
Bookended by Thanksgiving gatherings, Woody Allen’s Oscar-winning screenplay tracks the intertwining loves, tribulations, and neuroses of New York siblings; meanwhile, hypochondriac Woody copes with a brain tumor and Christian conversion. Academy Awards to Dianne Wiest and Michael Caine, who join Mia Farrow, Max von Sydow, Barbara Hershey, and Carrie Fisher in this sophisticated gem.
Home for the Holidays (1995)
The dread family reunion forms the core of this Thanksgiving homecoming. Claudia (Holly Hunter) is glad to see her clan, but not eager to endure them. Director Jody Foster’s humor is understated and generally dependent on viewer recognition, so mileage may vary. Anne Bancroft, Charles Durning, Robert Downing, Jr. and Claire Danes co-star.
Holiday Inn (1942)
Lovely Linda Mason has crooner Jim Hardy head over heels, but suave stepper Ted Hanover wants her for his new dance partner after femme fatale Lila Dixon gives him the brush. Jim’s supper club, Holiday Inn, is the setting for the chase by Hanover and manager Danny Reed. The music’s the thing.
Son in Law (1993)
Country girl Rebecca begins college in Los Angeles. There she meets Crawl, a student who is crazy, unpredictable and wild. During the holidays she brings him with her home. Her parents have never seen anything like him and are shocked when Rebecca tells them that they are engaged to be married. Two different worlds collide.
The House of Yes (1997)
Marty, a college student in New York, decides to pay his family a visit in their ancient and imposing house in D.C. He makes two mistakes, one is bringing his fiancé, Lesly with him, and the other is coming at all. As soon as he gets home things begin to go wrong, and although the mother, Mrs. Pascal hides the kitchen knives, she isn’t able to prevent disaster. It soon becomes clear that Marty and his sister, the unbalanced Jackie-O are just a little too affectionate towards each other, and everything untoward that could happen, does, in this unusual comedy.
Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009)
Paul Blart is a mild-mannered man who works as a security guard in a New Jersey mall. For years, he has applied to become a cop, but he always fails the physical exam because he is overweight. One day, a gang of organized criminals put the mall under siege and take hostages. Blart becomes trapped inside, and because of his sense of duty, refuses to leave. He thus becomes the police department’s eyes on the inside and attempts to stop the criminals on his own.
We’re the Millers (2013)
After being robbed of a week’s take, small-time pot dealer David is forced by his boss to go to Mexico to pick up a load of marijuana. In order to improve his odds of making it past the border, David asks the broke stripper Rose and two local teenagers to join him and pretend they’re on a family holiday.
The kid (Ethan Embry) is a bastard and instantly butts heads with Dutch and sabotages much of the trip that includes gun play, money stolen, fireworks mishaps, car accidents, hitchhiking with prostitutes, and a homeless shelter. The two eventually bond and get home in time for Thanksgiving dinner and lessons are learned. Most importantly, that nothing burps better than bacon…and Ed O’Neil was at one point attempting to be the human incarnate of Homer Simpson.
The Object of My Affection (1998)
George and Nina seem like the perfect couple. They share a cozy Brooklyn apartment, a taste for tuna casserole dinners, and a devotion to ballroom dancing. They love each other. There’s only one hitch: George is gay. And when Nina announces she’s pregnant, things get especially complicated. Vince – Nina’s overbearing boyfriend and the baby’s father-wants marriage.
