This 2005 dramedy about a family gathering for the holidays has the most aughts-era ensemble cast (I mean, just look at that poster!) - Sarah Jessica Parker, Diane Keaton, Claire Danes, Rachel MacAdams, Dermot Mulroney, Luke Wilson and Craig T. Nelson before he became the Parenthood patriarch. The "holiday diamond in the rough" as deemed by Entertainment Weekly in their excellent oral history (don't read it until after you've seen the movie) is all about the chaotic ups and downs of a large family gathering, with all of the archetypes you know and love (or love to hate). Soothingly familiar, the film is charming and funny, and ultimately about how important family (whether chosen or otherwise) truly is. The Family Stone will make you want to be surrounded with your loved ones and that is the true holiday spirit.
