Knives Out was voted top movie to watch for Thanksgiving, while Home Alone (celebrating its 30th anniversary this week) was voted the top family-friendly holiday film and Die Hard as the top unconventional holiday film by fans on Fandango’s transactional video on-demand services, Vudu and FandangoNOW.

“Watching a favorite classic movie is part of a beloved holiday tradition for many families,” Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis said in a statement. “This year there’s an extra nostalgia factor because many of us cannot gather together in front of the same screen. The top picks center on the power of families, warts and all, and serve as the kind of cinematic comfort food we look forward to enjoying during the holiday season.”
