Crawl (Pauly Shore) is a big city boy who travels to the Midwest for Thanksgiving, pretending to be the fiancé of a farmer's daughter he befriended at an L.A. college. His guise as Rebecca's fiancé is designed to discourage an overly ambitious suitor in her hometown, but the strait-laced innocent (Carla Gugino) eventually falls for Crawl as he bungles his way through a series of down-home traditions. Even her suspicious family comes around in the end, as Crawl's unflagging enthusiasm wins them over. For a fun watch that doesn't require a lot of cerebral musings, this is a great pick for Thanksgiving viewing -- for the whole family.
