11 Movies to Get You in the Thanksgiving Mood

Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. So to get you in the mood, Mental Floss put together a list of movies that include a Thanksgiving scene. Here they are:


Addams Family Values (1993): Wednesday Addams gives a speech about the injustices done to Native Americans during her camp's reenactment of the first Thanksgiving.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles (1987):  Steve Martin's character is trying to make it home in time for Thanksgiving.

Miracle on 34th Street (1947): Yeah I know, you're thinking "Hey that's a Christmas movie!" But it opens with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, so hey, it counts!

The Ice Storm (1997): It includes a scene with a Thanksgiving dinner with a not-so-nice speech.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (1973): This might be my favorite "Peanuts" holiday special. Snoopy's Thanksgiving feast with toast, jelly beans, and popcorn? Yes please.

Spider-Man (2002): It includes a Thanksgiving dinner.

You've Got Mail (1998): It takes place during the holiday.

The Humans (2021): It also takes place on Thanksgiving.

Scent of a Woman (1992):  Chris O'Donnell plays a student who looks after a blind Al Pacino during Thanksgiving break.

Home for the Holidays (1995): You might be able to relate to this one. It's just another dysfunctional family sharing a Thanksgiving dinner.

The Gold Rush (1925):  Charlie Chaplin prepares a Thanksgiving dinner.
