'It ain't cool being no jive turkey so close to Thanksgiving'
Sad to say, but the Thanksgiving holiday didn't inspire a ton of movies back in the 80s. (Can you name the movie that I reference in the headline? It's almost a Thanksgiving movie.) But if you're desperate to get into the mood for turkey (not Wild Turkey, which you should be in the mood for all the time), here are your best bets:
Hannah and Her Sisters (1986): Mia Farrow, Michael Caine. "I had a great evening; it was like the Nuremberg Trials."
Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987): Steve Martin, John Candy. "We'd have more luck playing pick-up sticks with our butt-cheeks than we will getting a flight out of here before daybreak." (More on this movie)
Since the list is a little short, I'm going to grandfather in these flicks from the early 90s:
Dutch (1991): Ed O'Neill, Ethan Embry. "Frankly, I don't care if you live, die, or grow mushrooms in your crack."
