10 Best Thanksgiving Movies Streaming Now – CNET


Movie fans can easily list their favorite Christmas films, rom-coms, sports movies … but Thanksgiving movies? It’s not exactly a huge genre. But maybe it should be. People who celebrate the holiday with a big dinner are perfectly set up to flop on the couch and watch something. Here’s a rundown of 10 of the best films with some relation to Thanksgiving, plus information on where to watch them. (Sadly, Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant isn’t streaming, or it would be included here.)

Warning: Spoilers for some of the movies ahead.


Planes, Trains and Automobiles might be the most well-known Thanksgiving movie of all Thanksgiving movies. The 1987 comedy was directed by John Hughes, who directed practically everything in the 1980s, and stars Steve Martin and John Candy as two travelers who spark an unlikely friendship as Martin haplessly tries to get home for Thanksgiving. Martin and the late Candy have the perfect personalities to play this odd couple, making the film a chaming and hilarious Thanksgiving treat.

Where to watch: It’s free if you have Paramount Plus, or you can rent it at numerous streaming sites, including Prime Video, YouTube and AppleTV.
