20 Years On, “What’s Cooking?” is the Greatest Thanksgiving Movie Ever Made
How a 2000 movie about four diverse families celebrating Thanksgiving is at once dated, nostalgic… and timely
I remember seeing What’s Cooking in the cinema on its release in December, 2000. It is now nostalgic. Shot in the waning days of the Clinton Administration, the movie takes place in an America before September 11; before George W. Bush, the War in Afghanistan, Donald Trump or January 6.
