Part 1 Top 10 Movies to Watch on Thanksgiving
1. Knocking on Heavens Door
2. The Pursuit of Happiness
A struggling salesman takes custody of his son as
hes poised to begin a life-changing professional
endeavor. Based on a true story about a man named
Christopher Gardner. Gardner has invested heavily
in a device known as a "Bone Density scanner". He
feels like he has made these devices. However,
they do not sell as they are marginally better
than the current technology at a much higher
price. As Gardner tries to figure out how to sell
them, his wife leaves him, he loses his house,
his bank account, and credit cards. Forced to
live out in the streets with his son, Gardner is
now desperate to find a steady job he takes on a
job as a stockbroker, but before he can receive
pay, he needs to go through 6 months of training,
and to sell his devices. This is a classic piece
of work by Will Smith. Many people think it is a
soul-touching story. Actually, it only delivers
one theme there is no Y in happiness, but I
in it. No matter how hard the life is, never give
up the pursuit of happiness.
Two young men, Martin and Rudi, both suffering
from terminal cancer, get to know each other in a
hospital room. They drown their desperation in
Tequila and decide to take one last trip to the
sea. Drunk and still in pajamas they steal the
first fancy car they find, a 60s Mercedes
convertible. The car happens to belong to a bunch
of gangsters, which immediately start to chase
it, since it contains more than the pistol Martin
finds in the glove box.

3. Good Will Hunting
4. Rain Man
Charles Sanford "Charlie" Babbit is a
self-centered Los Angeles-based automobile
dealer/hustler/bookie who is at war with his own
life. Charlie, as a young teenager, used his
fathers 1948 Buick convertible without
permission and as a result, he went to jail for
two days on account that his father reported it
stolen. It is then that Charlie learns that his
estranged father died and left him from his last
will and testament a huge bed of roses and the
car while the remainder will of 3 Million goes
into a trust fund to be distributed to someone.
Charlie seemed pretty angry by this and decides
to look into this matter. It seems as if that
"someone" is Raymond, Charlies unknown brother,
an autistic savant who lives in a world of his
own, resides at the Walbrook Institute. Charlie
then kidnaps Raymond and decides to take him on a
lust for life trip to the west coast as a threat
to get the 3 Million inheritance. Raymonds acts
and nagging, including repeated talks of "Abbott
Costello", "Four minutes till Wapner" and
refusal to fly on an airline except Quantas
drives Charlie insane and out of his selfish
world into a cross-country trek of pure love and
understanding that these two both have. This
movie is best for brothers to watch on
Thanksgiving.
Geniuses always have troubles that ordinary
people do not understand. The guy named Will
Hunting is such a math genius with psychal
issues. As a janitor at MIT, Will Hunting has a
gift for math and chemistry that can take him
light-years beyond his blue-collar roots, but he
doesnt realize his potential and cant even
imagine leaving his childhood Boston South End
neighborhood, his construction job, or his best
friend. To complicate matters, several strangers
enter the equation a brilliant math professor
who discovers, even envies, Wills gifts, an
empathetic shrink who identifies with Wills
blue-collar roots, and a beautiful, gifted
pre-med student who shows him, for the first time
in his life, the possibility of love.

5. Midnight in Paris
6. Alices Restaurant
Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along
vacation on her parents business trip. Gil is a
successful Hollywood writer but is struggling on
his first novel. He falls in love with the city
and thinks they should move there after they get
married, but Inez does not share his romantic
notions of the city or the idea that the 1920s
was the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing
with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight
and discovers what could be the ultimate source
of inspiration for writing. Gils daily walks at
midnight in Paris could take him closer to the
heart of the city but further from the woman hes
about to marry.
A Thanksgiving classic, Alices Restaurant hit
the big screen in 1969. This larger-than-life
recreation of Arlo Guthries song of the same
name is an entertaining romp through 1960s pop
culture, complete with a firsthand account of
anti-war sentiments. After Guthrie visits his
friend Alice for Thanksgiving, he offers to
transport her trash to the dump, where he
encounters a closed landfill. A series of
decisions prompts him to push the garbage into a
gully. When Guthries caught by local
authorities, a memorable court appearance is
followed by a series of legal events in which the
Army finds him unfit for military service.

7. Pieces of April
8. Planes, Trains and Automobiles
Long before she wed Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes
played the lead in Pieces of April, a 2003
comedic drama. At the center of it all is
Thanksgiving dinner, which April attempts to whip
up in her cramped and less-than-clean New York
City apartment for a cast of snarky, largely
estranged family members. We admit that while her
apartment makes us want to grab the nearest
disinfectant spray, it offers an interesting
backdrop for the action that ensues. Although the
movie has an amateur pallor, it makes up for it
with quirkiness and an emotionally satisfying
conclusion and makes the list of our
Thanksgiving movie picks.
This 1987 film follows Neal Page (Steve Martin)
and Del Griffith (John Candy) on a journey of
Odysseus-like proportions. The impromptu duos
nearly failed attempt to return from a business
trip in time for Thanksgiving dinner leads to a
likeable stint of self-discovery. Soon, each man
realizes he isnt quite the easy-going-peach-of-a-
guy he assumed he was, and we figure out that
what started as a comedy offers a few redemptive
lessons, too, like caring for a nearly total
stranger. Its enough to make us feel a little
smarmy and wistful which is just the right mood
for a family Thanksgiving.

9. The Karate Kid I-III
10. Free Birds
Honestly, theres never a bad time to watch The
Karate Kid, but the 1984 film and its sequels
are especially good screening material for a
holiday marathon because they really do have
something for every type of movie fan. Action?
This one has martial arts galore. Positive
themes? How about only using violence as a last
resort and recognizing the beauty in other
cultures traditions? Romance? Stars Ralph
Macchio and Elisabeth Shue are everyones
favorite high-school sweethearts. And hey, if
youve got time to spare, why not watch all three
films? You can thank us later.
Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson play a pair of
turkeys who travel back in time to get turkey
removed from the traditional Thanksgiving dinner
menu in this 2013 animated film that also
features the voices of George Takei and Parks and
Recreation star Amy Poehler. A nice mix of
kid-friendly hijinks and in-jokes for adult
audiences, the feather-filled buddy comedy offers
some holiday-appropriate movie fare that will
keep the young ones entertained while offering
some entertainment value for the older crowd, too.
