If you’re annual Turkey Day tradition involves watching relaxing family movies each year then you are in for a treat. We have collected the best 11 movies that you can stream and watch on Netflix on this Thanksgiving 2016.

1. Adventures in Babysitting (1987)

This one is a classic and is fun for the whole family. It has an amazing storyline revolving around the babysitter and the kids she’s babysitting, how they get involved with each other and finally acts like family.

2. Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)

This is a John Hughes classic comedy in which Steve Martin tries to reach home for Thanksgiving but he gets grounded when a blizzard strikes. This ill faith also impacts his traveling companion, John Candy and from then onwards they try everything that goes wrong in order to reach Chicago.

3. Titanic (1997)

This movie needs no introduction as everyone knows what happened but the best part is watching Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, and many others in one of the greatest love stories of all time. It is definitely worth watching again and again.


4. Forrest Gump (1994)

This movie right here is one of the great classics that really gets you into the Thanksgiving mood when you’re stuffed with food. Once you have your second serving of desserts then sit down and enjoy when Forest says, ‘Life is like a box of chocolates.’


The thing about love actually is that if you don’t actually watch it in the holiday season then you don’t love actually? You’ll love this movie if you haven’t seen it before.

6. Top Gun (1986)

This one is preferred more by the ladies as Tom Cruise was too hot at that time. The girls may need a cold shower before watching it and maybe another one after as well. This one is just too hot to handle.

7. Last Holiday (2006)

In this movie, Queen Latifah plays a woman who gets diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. How can this be a holiday movie, right? But there is an amazing twist to it which you’ll find out when you watch it.

8. Clueless (1995)

You just can’t have a Thanksgiving without watching this one movie. This is a must watch for everyone.

9. Mean Girls (2004)

This particular movie is a classic not only for girls but the whole family. It gives the perfect impression of all that plastic out there if you know what I mean.

10. Rocky (1976)

Rocky is not a movie just about boxing but much more. It shows that a boxer also has a simple life as well. For example, Adrian wants to have a nice and calming Thanksgiving but brother Paulie brings home Rocky, right after Adrian and Rocky are ice skating on their first awkward but sweet date.

11. Kristy (2014)

The most horror movies come out on Halloween and some on Christmas but a horror movie on Thanksgiving is close to impossible. In the movie, Justine is spending the holiday alone in the dorms with four psychos that want to kill her. Sounds fun, right?
