Are you stuffing yourself full this Thanksgiving? Instead of watching the same old football game, why not cuddle up and take a shot at watching these top five Thanksgiving favorites?

5): A Charlie Brown Christmas

We all know and love this classic. Since 1948, Charlie Brown and the whole Peanuts Gang have won their way into our hearts, with their comical misadventures and meaningful life lessons. This classic is great for kids and adults alike, so gather your rambunctious kids and watch it this Thanksgiving.

4): Curly Sue

You can’t not fall in love with the adorable, curly-topped heroine of this John Hughes film, played by Allison Porter. Curly Sue follows the story of a red-headed orphan girl, who assists a homeless man in coercing people for food and a home for the holidays (you’ll be extra thankful for that big Thanksgiving meal after watching).

3): Home for the Holidays(1995)

Claudia Larson’s Thanksgiving had a rather horrid start.— she was fired from her job, and her daughter informed her that she would be spending the holiday with her boyfriend instead of their usual family get-together. By the end of the film, our intrepid protagonist gains a new outlook on life.

2). The Big Chill (1983)

A group of seven former college friends gather for a weekend reunion at a South Carolina winter house after the funeral of one of their friends. A movie of recollection on the things you take for granted, this move will warm your heart along with all of that hot chocolate.

1). Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

A man must struggle to travel home for Thanksgiving with an obnoxious loser of a shower curtain ring salesman as his only companion. Neal Page must learn to survive this trip to Chicago and learn what Thanksgiving spirit is.
