Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Some of you out there accidently missed the "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" button...

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.

I forced my family to start watching it every Thanksgiving and it has become a quasi-tradition.

PT&A is a fine movie and everything but Dutch is better in my book.

THIS.

If there's ever an option for a Charlie Brown movie on one of these quizzes, it wins. Period.

The 12 days of crap was just that- crap.

It's funny how when Woot! calls their stuff crap, it's ok, but when *YOU* call it crap, *poof* you get banned. Hypocrites.

I mean, you can't really compete with Charlie Brown, but barring that:

I'd vote for Squanto: A Warrior's Tale. You know, story of the first Thanksgiving and all, seems pretty relevant.

Ha! Ni förstår inte detta! Det går inte att censurera nåt om ni inte förstår det! Ha! Där fick ni!

Planes...is clearly the choice but I can't believe Pieces of April is even on here! A great little film that no one ever heard of starring Katie Holmes. Do yourself a favor and add it to your Netflix queue. Honest, good flick!

Charlie Brown is easily the best Turkey Day movie!

I am racking my brain for a movie that includes Thanksgiving and I distinctly remember Honey I Shrunk the kids having a giant turkey. I think it was for Thanksgiving. Does that count?

It is a tie between Charlie Brown and Alice's Restaurant.

I like all the Charlie Brown cartoons as much as anyone, but they don't make it on my lists of best movies...because they are not movies. They are shows (or shorts, or specials, or whatever), not movies. I am assuming that is why it didn't make this list.

It has actually been years since I have watched any of these movies so I might have a Thanksgiving movie marathon. I make polls like this at work and I couldn't think of a single Thanksgiving day movie. So thanks for the list, Woot.

I'll go with Charlie Brown, even though it isn't a movie. This is because I can't think of any movies tied to Thanksgiving and I watched the Charlie Brown specials growing up (we had limited choices for live viewing back then). Now you damn kids, get off of my lawn!

I'm just hanging out, really.

At least most people can think of at least a handful of Christmas themed movies. Thanksgiving is a tough one.

PTA is the best, but Scent of a Woman should have been a choice.

Funny-ass movie what with the deer & the cigarette setting the car on fire. God, was John Candy a great one or what? Imagine what it would have been like with Charlie Sheen instead of Steve Martin. They probably would've had some hookers and an eight-ball in the hotel scene where they're chugging the little liquor bottles. The ending was really sweet though. Miss you J.C.

Seems like most wooters under the age of 25 have never seen PT&A. Very funny movie.

Family Guy, Season 8, Episode 3, "Spies Reminiscent of Us". It's the episode where Peter keeps doing his impression of John Wayne at the first Thanksgiving.

"Happy Thanksgiving, Pilgrims!"
