Thanksgiving 2016: Here Are 15 Movies To Watch On Netflix For The Whole Holiday Weekend

Galaxy Quest

It’s that glorious time of year when we get together with both the family members we love (and some that we could probably do without) to sit down for a tasty meal and hopefully not a big fight. But with an extended weekend upon us, you’ll likely have plenty of spare time while you’re hanging out with family, and you’re just not in the mood to talk anymore. That’s what it’s time to turn to Netflix to fill some time, and thankfully, there’s a wide variety of movies for you to watch with anyone and everyone in your family.

Below check out our Thanksgiving 2016 Netflix suggestions for some movies available right now that will help you pass some time and keep every single member of your family occupied.Zootopia - Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde (1)

Zootopia

To keep the kids distracted while you cook, give them one of the best animated movies of the year. It has a powerful message at its core without being too preachy, the animation is outstanding, it’s funny, and even some of the adults in your house might leave you alone once they realize how good it is. Watch it now.

Heavyweights

When you’re thinking about eating another slice of pumpkin pie, this movie will either make you second guess your eating decisions this weekend or encourage you to stuff your face some more. This is one of those live-action comedies for adolescents from the 90s that don’t really get made anymore, but this one actually holds up in adulthood thanks to the fact that it’s written by Judd Apatow. It also features a younger Paul Feig in jorts, so that’s pretty special, and Ben Stiller makes a great villain. Watch it now.

10 Things I Hate About You

If you just want to snuggle with your significant other, you can’t go wrong with arguably the best teen romantic comedy of the 90s. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is adorable as he pines after Larisa Oleynik, and Heath Ledger is charming as hell as he tries to woo the rough around the edges Julia Stiles. Watch it now.

Miracle on 34th Street

When you’re in the mood for Christmas and the kids aren’t in bed, this remake of the classic holiday movie is a good way to get the little ones in the Christmas spirit. It’s not quite as captivating as a bright and colorful animated movie, but it should get them believing in Santa Claus thanks to a great performance by Richard Attenborough. Plus, we can all remember how adorable Mara Wilson was as a child star. Watch it now.

Tommy Boy

Because this movie is always funny any time of the year, it’s a good one to pop on for some laughs. If you’re like me, you can still quote all the best lines, and you don’t really have to pay attention to it much if you’re trying to carry on a conversation, screwing around on your computer, or just tossing back some holiday nosh. Watch it now.
