Thanksgiving Break; Family Movie Marathon

Well, tomorrow is thanksgiving, and if you are not running around like a chicken with your head cut off because you are hosting, then you are looking forward to, and maybe even fasting to make room for a day of eating,  lounging, eating some more, watching football, eating again and then watching movies.

To help you figure out what to watch with your wonderful days of downtime, we have put together a list of our favorite feel good movies to help you remember its not just your family that is coo coo crazy.

Meet the Parents

A funny movie about what so many of us go through on that first holiday you spend with your significant other's family.

Male nurse Greg Focker meets his girlfriend's parents before proposing, but her suspicious father is every date's worst nightmare

Dumb and Dumber

I have memories of watching this as a kid with the family after thanksgiving.  It's a silly movie that gets everyone laughing and in the holiday mood.

The cross-country adventures of two good-hearted but incredibly stupid friends.

Father of the Bride



A classic movie about family dynamics and all of the personalities that go along with getting a whole bunch of family together.

With his oldest daughter's wedding approaching, a father finds himself reluctant to let go.

The Parent Trap

I promise I didn't just pick this because they have red hair... It is such a fun movie about family, extended family and reuniting with loved ones.

Identical twins, separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents, discover each other for the first time at summer camp and make a plan to bring their wayward parents back together.

The Big Wedding



A hilarious movie about a family and all their relationship nuances, coming together for a wedding.  Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams lead this all star cast.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy the lounging, eating and movie watching!
