While there aren't nearly as many Thanksgiving-themed movies as other holidays, there are still a few options to choose from if you're looking for a movie to watch on Netflix.
Thanksgiving is a time for friends and family to gather together and express what they are thankful for, and eat some delicious food. Then, after you've stuffed yourself with stuffing, you can turn to Netflix for some good, Thanksgiving-themed content.
Here are five Thanksgiving-related movies you can stream now on Netflix to get in the mood for the annual holiday:
Ed O'Neill stars as Dutch Dooley in this 1991 John Hughes classic. Dutch is tasked with bringing home his girlfriend's son, Doyle (a young Ethan Embry), for Thanksgiving, only to discover that the two don't exactly get along. The film shows the beauty in differing personalities coming together to find common ground and the value in family.
Not Cool (2014)
For a more modern take on Thanksgiving, YouTube sensation Shane Dawson stars as a former prom king who returns to his hometown in Pittsburgh for the holiday in Not Cool. He finds himself developing feelings for a girl he used to bully in high school, while a geek falls for his younger sister.
Farm girl Rebecca Warner (Carla Gugino) returns from college for Thanksgiving with her party-boy best friend, Crawl (Pauly Shore). Rebecca is hoping to avoid her boyfriend asking her to marry him, asking Crawl to pretend to be her fiancé. Anyone who has been through the awkwardness of family interactions through the Thanksgiving holiday will relate to this.
Rocky may not center entirely on Thanksgiving, but fans of the movie will certainly recall one of the most memorable scenes in the movie. Paulie (Burt Young) and Rocky (Sylvester Stalllone) come to Thanksgiving dinner where Adrian (Talia Shire) is cooking a turkey. Paulie asks her to go on a date with Rocky that night and let's just say the fans will remember what happens next.
Miracle on 34th Street (1994)
This 1994 remake of the classic Miracle on 34th Street is the perfect holiday movie for the gap between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. The film stars Elizabeth Perkins as Dorey Walker, the special events director at Cole's, a department store modeled after Macy's. She fires the store's Santa after discovering he was drunk at the store's annual Thanksgiving parade, only to find the perfect Santa in Kris Kringle (Richard Attenborough), who is so real, many believe him to be the real deal.
