tv talk: 3 thanksgiving movies


although we put up our christmas tree and start preparing for christmas well before thanksgiving, i never start watching christmas movies until i have seen these three movies every year. there aren't a whole lot of movies that are situated around the thanksgiving holiday because, sadly, christmas tends to outshine this similar holiday of families getting together.

there are a few others that you might add to this list, but for me, it's all about these three.

1. son in law - who doesn't love the early days of pauly shore? after a few more of his movies, i was pretty much done with him, but this is hands down his best movie. a girl takes her a college friend, who grew up in the city, home for thanksgiving to her family's farm.

2. dutch - was this or wasn't this ethan embry's first movie? actually, i just checked and it wasn't his actual first, but it was one of his first starring roles. basically, he plays a spoiled rotten brat of a kid who gives his mom's new boyfriend hell when he does her a favor and picks him up at his prep school to come home for thanksgiving.

3. plains, trains, and automobiles - two strangers meet up and travel together to try and make it home in time for thanksgiving. if you haven't seen this movie, where in the world have you been?
