When Thanksgiving dinner is over, what is the best way to spend time with the family? While some will assuredly be getting ready to go hit the pre-Black Friday sales, the more sensible online shoppers will wait for Cyber Monday and stay home in the warmth, curled up on the sofa. For some, it's time for football. But for the less sports-inclined, there are plenty of Thanksgiving movies on Amazon to rent. It's a perfect way to laugh, cry, and spend time with the family without actually having to have any serious conversations.
