Great Holiday Movie

These was a great movie. It shows how four different cultures celebrate Thanksgiving. It shows you that everyone does the same thing on Thanksgiving, no matter if you're White, Black, Asian, Hispanic Gay or Straight. The shocker will be at the end. Four families, four different problems one Holiday, and everyone is closer than you think. Now with that said can you please sell Bride and Prejudice Gurinder's third Movie about love and marriage Indian style.

feel good, funny

Worth renting. A funny movie about families, and time honored traditions.


My mom and I watch this every year on or near Thanksgiving, it gets you into the spirit of the holidays and reminds you about family with comedy thrown in, definitely worth your time.
