19:00 Royal Family Thanksgiving
Prod Year 2015 - Royalty in name and mind only, the Royal family led by patriarch Leighton (Richard Lawson) and matriarch Alfreda (Debbi Morgan), kick-off the first film, Royal Family Thanksgiving, with a fake break-up ruse to lure their overly-busy children home for Thanksgiving. Surprises and challenges ensue, including drama with Alfreda's envious sister Mona Levi (Vivica A. Fox); the revelation of a deep, dark family secret involving Alfreda's former acquaintance Chivonne Price (Tichina Arnold); and dealings with Leighton's super-loud, outspoken cousin Nelson Royal (Ricky Harris). Unfortunately, Leighton and Alfreda both play their roles too well as old wounds are re-opened and their carefully planned reunion leads to chaos - and a potentially real royal break-up.
20:30 Planes, Trains & Automobiles
Prod Year 1987 - Easily excitable Neal Page (Steve Martin) is somewhat of a control freak. Trying to get home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his wife (Laila Robbins) and kids, his flight is rerouted to a distant city in Kansas because of a freak snowstorm, and his sanity begins to fray. Worse yet, he is forced to bunk up with talkative Del Griffith (John Candy), whom he finds extremely annoying. Together they must overcome the insanity of holiday travel to reach their intended destination.
22:30 Jack and Jill
Prod Year 2011 - Adam Sandler finds his feminine side in this fan-pleasingly broad comedy where he plays both a regular guy and his high-maintenance sister. Los Angeles advertising exec Jack Sadelstein seems to have the perfect life with a perfect wife and kids. However, there's one annual diary fixture he dreads - the Thanksgiving visit of his passive-aggressive identical twin sister Jill. This year it gets worse when Al Pacino - yep, that's right - falls for Jill's, er, singular charms.
