Favorite Thanksgiving Movies

A graphic with fall leaves that says
It’s almost time to sit down and enjoy a big long-awaited feast of turkey, mashed potatoes swimming in gravy, and pie. With Thanksgiving coming up this week, we thought it’d be fun to share a few of our favorite Thanksgiving movies with residents of our Liv Ahwatukee apartment community in Phoenix, AZ. If we didn’t include a movie you love, add it by leaving the title in the comment section below.

Home for the Holidays

“After losing her job, making out with her soon-to-be former boss and finding out that her daughter plans to spend Thanksgiving with her boyfriend, Claudia Larson faces spending the holiday with her family.”

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

“Peppermint Patty invites herself and her friends over to Charlie Brown’s for Thanksgiving, and with Linus, Snoopy, and Woodstock, he attempts to throw together a Thanksgiving dinner.”

Alice’s Restaurant

“Arlo Guthrie plays himself in this film based on his song of the same name. After getting kicked out of college, Arlo decides to visit his friend Alice (Pat Quinn) for Thanksgiving dinner. After dinner is over, Arlo volunteers to take the trash to the dump, but finds it closed for the holiday, so he just dumps the trash in the bottom of a ravine. This simple act of littering gets him arrested, and sends him on a bizarre journey that ends with him in front of the draft board.”

A Winnie the Pooh Thanksgiving

“It’s Thanksgiving time in the Hundred Acre Wood and Winnie the Pooh and all his friends bring food for the big dinner. Piglet brings acorns, Pooh brings honey, Owl brings biscuits, Gopher brings lemonade, and Tigger brings ice cream. But then, Rabbit walks in and tells them their Thanksgiving dinner was unacceptable and informs them that a real Thanksgiving dinner includes turkey, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie, so Pooh and his friends set out to find those very items.”

We hope you enjoy watching a few of these movies in celebration of Thanksgiving this week. Thanks for reading!
