Nothing brings a family or a group of friends together on vacation like a good old-fashioned movie night. During the holiday season, many of us expect a few weeks of hearty home-cooked meals, trips to the past, and evenings spent comfortably on the couch in front of the TV. But of course, the hardest part is choosing a movie that will appeal to all of your family or group of friends. As long as you have a Netflix subscription, you’ll be covered.
Netflix’s movie offerings range from romantic comedies to dramas to documentaries. Whatever genre you are looking for, you will most likely find something that fits the bill. But when choosing a movie to watch while you help your aunt stuff the turkey, it’s best to choose something warm and familiar. That’s why this list is full of proven favorites, from classic My beautiful lady to hilarious, uplifting Rock school. There are some great original Netflix titles too, including the Cute and Lightweight Always be my maybe and the Oscar-winning documentary My octopus teacher.
All of the titles below are available to stream on Netflix in November, so you can start planning your movie nights accordingly. And once Thanksgiving is over, you can jump straight into the Christmas season – Netflix has a huge assortment of holiday movies, too.
