There are no great Thanksgiving movies. Pieces of April was Ok? I like the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special fine? I guess.
Luckily, other Thanksgiving movies don't even matter, because the only one that deserves our respect is Addams Family Values. It's not about Pilgrims, Squanto, or the digestive endurance of maize, but it is about Wednesday Addams (Christina Ricci), her horrifying stay at the Chippewa Falls summer camp, and her starring role in the camp's play, "The First Thanksgiving" as Pocahontas. Yes, Pocahontas is at this Thanksgiving. The political incorrectness is life-affirming.
Addams Family Values is a sequel to The Addams Family, the Barry Sonnenfeld feature film spun off from the Charles Addams comic strip and '60s TV series. The creepy, kooky, mysterious, ooky family is much funnier in its '90s incarnation, as veteran stars Raul Julia, Anjelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd, Carol Kane, and Christina Ricci »
