Nothing brings a family or a group of friends together during the holidays like a good ol’ fashioned movie night. During the holiday season, many of us get to look forward to a few weeks of hearty home-cooked meals, trips down memory lane, and evenings spent cozying up on the couch in front of the TV. But of course, the hardest part is actually picking out a movie that everyone in your family or friend group will enjoy. As long as you have a Netflix subscription, you’ll be covered.

Netflix’s movie offerings range from romantic comedies to dramas to documentaries. No matter what genre you’re looking for, you’ll very likely find something that fits the bill. But when you’re picking out a movie to have on while you help your aunt stuff the turkey, it’s best to choose something warm and familiar. That’s why this list is full of tried-and-true favorites, from classic My Fair Lady to hilarious, uplifting School of Rock. There’s also some excellent Netflix original titles, including the cute, lighthearted Always Be My Maybe and the Academy Award-winning documentary My Octopus Teacher.

All of the titles below are available to stream on Netflix this November, so you can start planning your movie nights accordingly. And once Thanksgiving passes, you can transition straight into the Christmas season — Netflix has a great assortment of holiday movies, too.

Here’s our top movie picks for the ultimate Thanksgiving weekend viewing experience. Which movie are you most excited to watch first?
