For those who celebrate it, Thanksgiving is a busy affair – between catching up with relatives, making sure the stuffing isn’t burning and attempting to purchase a last-minute pie, the day often goes by in a flash – and yet, there’s always time to fill.

Some contain famous Thanksgiving scenes or references, while others are just heartwarming, family-friendly flicks.
