These are almost better than leftovers.
Thanksgiving is all about the creamy mashed potatoes (or lumpy ones, if that’s what you’re into), savory stuffing, tasty turkey, and as much pumpkin pie as you can eat. But the many courses of deliciousness usually mean a food coma is just around the corner, and you’ll need a low-effort activity that you and the rest of the family can still enjoy together. That’s where this list of best Thanksgiving movies on Netflix comes in: You and the grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and kids, can all take in a film that makes you feel even more grateful for the good things in life—and you don’t even have to leave the house. The hardest decision you’ll have to make is what to watch. There are a few Christmas-themed options for the December enthusiasts out there; some action and adventure tales for the bravest members of your clan; and a few cartoons for the younger audiences in the room. But all will tug at your dinner guests’ heartstrings and leave you feeling warm, fuzzy, and full inside. We won’t go so far as to say they’ll satisfy you more than your homemade desserts, but you’ll definitely find yourself craving a second helping (of viewings, of course).
