If you need another reason to feel grateful about spending time with your families during the holidays, Blockbuster has a list of movies that will help you see it’s all relative this Thanksgiving Day.
According to Blockbuster’s Dysfunctional Family Poll, “Nobody’s Fool,” featuring Paul Newman as Sully, a cranky, sarcastic patriarch whose son and grandson unexpectedly show up for Thanksgiving dinner tops the list as the most dysfunctional turkey day. A close second is “Planes, Trains & Automobiles,” which features Steve Martin struggling to get home for Thanksgiving while being unavoidably accompanied by the endlessly irritating shower curtain-ring salesman Del Griffith, played by John Candy.
Thanks to Blockbuster, I’m hosting a Dysfunctional Family Thanksgiving Movie Trivia Contest. The winner of the trivia will win a Surviving the Holidays prize pack, including a $10 Blockbuster gift card and two movies from the Dysfunctional Family Movie list.
To enter, answer the following 5 trivia questions in the comments section before Noon on Thanksgiving Day. A winner will be chosen from the entries that contain the correct responses and announced later that evening, or perhaps the day after, depending on the severity of my tryptophan coma!
Good luck and thanks to Blockbuster for the fun movie trivia contest!
