In this ’90s take on our favorite spooky clan, we learn that the Addams family has actually expanded to include young baby Pubert. Wednesday and Pugsley are less than pleased with his arrival. That's when their new babysitter—who’s eyeing Uncle Fester's big bucks—decides to enroll the kiddos in summer camp. Obviously, it's not the children’s cup of poison. Camp Chippewa is the location of the famous Thanksgiving play scene that goes awry at Wednesday’s direction, giving Kill Bill a run for its (stage) blood-gushing money. You know we’re in for trouble the minute Wednesday, who stars as Pocahontas says, “Wait. We cannot break bread with you.” Rated PG-13.
Thanksgiving is a day for binges, both culinary and cinematic. For many, the holiday means pounding through every Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings movie while the house fills with the smell of roasting turkey and baked pies. But curiously, there aren't an awful lot of movies actually set during Thanksgiving.
Christmas movies are a dime a dozen, but a good Turkey Day film is as rare as a holiday meal where Uncle Rick doesn't start talking politics. Rarer still is a family-friendly Thanksgiving movie (Planes, Trains & Automobiles is way more R-rated than you remember). But fret not: We’ve plated them all up right here. Polish off your third helping and find a comfy spot to enjoy classics like A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and newfound holiday flicks like Free Birds, any of which should be entertaining enough to get the kids settled and Uncle Rick to stop spitting conspiracy theories.
