Everyone, young and old, can still learn a solid lesion from a Charlie Brown holiday, and Thanksgiving is no different. This holiday edition we hang out with the Peanuts gang over a table of plenty and display sharing and thankfulness. Plus, it’s a solid classic only the like of ‘A Christmas Story’ can pass for their respective holidays.
John Candy, Steve Martin, and nothing but road to eat up – brings peace during my travels because it benchmarks how bad the trip could be going. One man doesn’t have a care in the world, and is seemly joyous about their impromptu adventure. The other, makes up for it. No matter the means, if it moves, and moves in a semi-close direction they’re headed, then they’ll give it a shot.
Two men, simply waiting on a woman, and happened to live next to each other – it’s a fun depiction of single life for the golden years. Something that wasn’t all too common when filmed, but a revisit to this film may bring some to enjoy more than they originally remembered. They say, very few things can wedge between two men harder than a beautiful woman.
The ultimate story of Thanksgiving, illustrating when John Smith and his Englishmen ventured into the unknown forests of the New World, only to stumble upon a Native-American beauty and a proud tribe led by her dad, Chief Powhatan. With Grandmother Willow, Meeko, and Flit by their side, Pocahontas and John Smith share a table and unite the sides over giving of thanks and bread.
Between two Thanksgivings, Hannah’s husband falls in love with her sister Lee, while her hypochondriac ex-husband rekindles his relationship with her sister Holly. It helps remind you what family means, and with three sisters myself, it reminds me it’s pure, beautiful chaos.
