Happy Thanksgiving brought to you by Robert Downey Jr., Holly Hunter, Anne Bancroft, Charles Durning, Claire Danes, Dylan McDermott, Geraldine Chapline, Steve Guttenburg, and Jodie Foster.
Home For The Holidays has been a yearly tradition in my world since we literally stumbled upon a copy of it nearly 15 years ago.
My family and I were spending Christmas at a cabin in the mountains. The cable didn't work, but there was a snazzy retro wood paneled TV, a VCR, and a copy of two movies. You guessed it, one was Home For The Holidays, which we'd never seen, and the other was a classic that we already adored, the Winona Ryder/Cher masterpiece, Mermaids.
In the evenings, after hikes, cooking, and plentiful board games, we were settled in for movie time. Cue to an hour later and our stomachs hurt from hysterically laughing.
Finding this movie might have been random and still it turned out to be an ever lasting memory. This Thanksgiving or next, think about checking out this flick. For the bombastic Robert Downey Jr. performance alone, it is worth it.
Until next time.
