Movies That Will Make You Hungry, Just In Time For Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

It's doubtful anyone needs help working up an appetite for Thanksgiving, but that doesn't mean a feast for the eyes is off the pre-holiday table. In fact, it may inspire a stomach rumble or two.

In honor of Thanksgiving dinner, here 11 movies that will make you hungry.

  • "Julie & Julia"
    Amy Adams takes on 365 days of 524 Julia Child recipes, and they look so good in "Julie & Julia."
  • "Eat Pray Love"
    The movie is called "Eat Pray Love" for a reason, and the scenes where Julia Roberts enjoys life by chowing down are clearly the best parts.
  • "Ratatouille"
    Because who doesn't want their food prepared by an adorable animated rat?
  • "Jiro Dreams of Sushi"
    Sushi made by one of the world's greatest sushi chefs? Yes, please!
  • "Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory"
    The chocolate factory is actually a death trap for spoiled and impudent children, but if they just behaved themselves they would have been privy to all that wonderful sugar-filled goodness.
  • "Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle"
    Maybe you aren't craving quite so many sliders, but after the journey Harold and Kumar endured to get that mountain of mini-burgers, it's only right.
  • "Waitress"
    You'll want a big slice of pie when this movie is over.
  • "Marie Antoinette"
    Marie Antoinette may have never actually said "Let them eat cake" in real life, but there are more than enough sweets in Sofia Coppola's vision of the Palace of Versailles to go around.
  • "Hook"
    Feast your eyes on the smorgasbord in "Hook." It takes a child's imagination to conjure this spread, and we're glad we haven't forgot how to play.
  • "Inglourious Basterds"
    Other parts of "Inglourious Basterds" may cause you to lose your appetite entirely, but the strudel scene makes quite the case for the pastry.
  • "Pulp Fiction"
    "Pulp Fiction's" Royale with cheese scene is pretty much just a commercial for McDonald's.
