Last year for Thanksgiving, we treated you to the top 5 overeating scenes from the movies (in honor of all the face-stuffing so many of us are doing today). This Thanksgiving, we're celebrating another indulgence: pie.
Bonus: No footage of Mr. Creosote to ruin your appetite. You're welcome!
5. "The Worst Pies in London" from Sweeney Todd

3. Every pie in Waitress
