Family Burnout? Take A Time-Out With These Modern Thanksgiving Classics

We know you love your family. We love ours too. We do. We promise. But, it's been a few days now, and...we're guessing you may need a break. Say, a 90-120 minute break.
SundanceNOW has rounded up a list of classic Thanksgiving movies to amuse you — and remind you of a few reasons to be thankful. Reasons like: your sister isn't trying to kill you, your brother didn't throw a turkey at anyone, and your parents, even if they are driving you to a state of deep adolescent hysteria, are not out at a sex party. Unless they are, in which case, the TV is all yours.
