This movie is a good family movie. It was refreshing to sit down and watch a movie with no bad language in the movie. I highly recommend this movie as a family movie.

Yes, this Hallmark Channel movie does take place during the Thanksgiving Holiday, but it's really about considering one's place in life and what's important or meaningful.

A driven, successful, single lawyer(Zuniga),apparently happy, and against her desires, gets transported to an alternative lifestyle through the magic of a "Transpersonal Psychologist"(Dunaway). She's now married with kids, husband and the rigors of motherhood with potty training, feeding and teaching the kids, helping her husband seek his true career, bonding again with her homemaker sister and deciding for herself what's she really wants in life.

Of course, this has all been done before, but it's hilarious to watch as she struggles with day to day life, out of her element, with what we as moms and dads, especially moms, know so well.

The actors perform well, the children, super! It's good to see Faye Dunaway at work even if she only pops in for brief but important bits.

This is comedy with some romance, a touch of drama and a lot of sentiment. Predictable (which of these films are not?)it's fun and warm. There's no violence, language, sex- well, as the married woman, she does remove the shirt of her muscular, handsome husband as a prelude to unshown events. Overall, the film is family friendly. Happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoyed the movie and would recommend it for the holidays. This is the third holiday movie I have with Daphne Zuniga.

I am a teacher and bought this to show my 6th and 7th grade students before the holiday. It's a good thing I previewed it first! There was a scene where two characters were frantically trying to remove their clothes for a sex scene, and there was a reference to that time of the month. There were too many of these types of instances that made me decide that there was no way I could show it at school. Waste of money. It was not the sweet "feel good" movie that I had hoped for at all. It's going to Good Will!

Okay, this is a Hallmark "feel good" movie and due to that, everything is just predictable. The movie starts really slow and catches up half way through... Not sure, but it looks like Daphne was having problems with her legs for her gait looks very uneasy and unstable in several scenes of the movie.

A Family Thanksgiving was a good movie that I've watched more than 2 or 3 times. The entire family can watch this movie; no violence, no foul language, no nudity. Just a good movie to add to anyone's collection.

This movie is an eye opener about what's important and different directions to take with your life. Career vs Family. I would recommend this to everyone. It's about the trials of being a mother and wife when you've always been career-oriented. Family dynamics at its best.
