All the Best Thanksgiving Movies on Netflix

These Thanksgiving movies on Netflix will give you all the feels. Whether you’re visiting family or hosting the big feast, Thanksgiving movies will be a great addition.

Remember those Thanksgiving with family? Grandma prepared a big feast that she began in the early hours of the morning for her extended family to enjoy in the early afternoon.

The guys ate dinner in the living room while watching the football game. The ladies ate in the kitchen and catch up on everything that had happened during the year.

We all love the Thanksgiving holiday. No work on Thanksgiving and an extra day off for Black Friday.

Friday officially kicks off the Christmas shopping season. Before we do that, we can gather around the living room and find a good family favorite to watch.

Although there are many classic Thanksgiving movies, there aren't many options available on Netflix.

There are a few Thanksgiving movies on this list of Christmas movies on Amazon Prime.

Dark comedies about the holiday provide cheer-weary viewers with movie options to help balance the heart-warming and generally predictable fare that is available during the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Free Birds

Pardoned by the president, a lucky turkey (Owen Wilson) named Reggie gets to live a carefree lifestyle until fellow fowl Jake (Woody Harrelson) recruits him for a history-changing mission. Jake and Reggie travel back in time to the year 1621, just before the first Thanksgiving.

The plan: Prevent all turkeys from ever becoming holiday dinners. Unfortunately, the two birds encounter colonist Myles Standish (Colm Meaney), out to capture feathered friends for all the hungry Pilgrims. | Stream on Netflix

The Mitchells vs. The Machines

By the way, we start listening to Christmas music often before Thanksgiving. I enjoy the season so much that I want to get a full 30 days’ worth of enjoyment.

Movies on Netflix About Being Thankful

Okay, I might be stretching it a little, but at least these titles featured the word “thank.”
