Movie Review: A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion (1993)

It's 1963 and the Walton clan (and their 80s perms) are reuniting for Thanksgiving. Richard Thomas stars and there is exposition and Pa Walton is an ass who ill-uses people and exercises abusive control over his family. JFK dies and there is a completely inaccurate description of JFK's links to the civil rights movement. This has a languid alienating pace and this was a true commitment to boredom.

This was done dead seriously. The ages seem off. Shouldn't the clan be much older in 1963? There is family festering resentment which is shrugged off. A stroke ridden actress who can't speak is dragged onscreen. This was dull.

Best Line:

“Seen keeping late hours with a married man!”
