There is something about the holiday that makes a night on the couch watching movies a must. Maybe it is the food coma that sucks us into the couch or the impeding colder weather that keeps us inside, but whatever it is, Thanksgiving is the season of snuggling on the sofa with the ones we love most and enjoying some mindless entertainment. And there is no better way to celebrate the season than a full-on binge session of the greatest Thanksgiving movies of all-time with some turkey sandwiches and stuffing on the side. So, start the fire and settle in for an evening of leftovers and these Top-12 greatest Thanksgiving movies ever.
