If you've nothing to do this Thanksgiving, I'll give you two options. You can either suffer through the emotional hell, constant guilt, and drunken games of charades that make up The Spotswood Family Thanksgiving, or you can rent the following awesome movies, all about this bizarre holiday.
Beth's Top Five Thanksgiving Movies:
4. The Ice Storm
3. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
2. Home for the Holidays
1. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
Although, the best part of Thanksgiving is the random movies that are played on TBS and USA and TNT all day long. Starting at, like, 10am, they'll play Ghost, Top Gun, The Breakfast Club, and Indiana Jones all in a row. Heaven. (It's important to note that when I speak of Indiana Jones, I'm only talking about 1 and 2. 3 is complete bullshit, and doesn't deserve to be mass broadcast on a national holiday.)
You can have your football. I'll take Dutch any day of the week and twice on Thursdays...
