Synopsis:
Neal Page is an advertising executive who just wants to fly home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his family. But all Neal Page gets is misery. Misery named Del Griffith - a loud mouthed, but nevertheless lovable, salesman who leads Neal on a cross-country, wild goose chase that keeps Neal from tasting his turkey. Steve Martin (Neal) and John Candy (Del) are absolutely wonderful as two guys with a knack for making the worst of a bad situation.

A comedy Classic!! - Planes, Trains and Automobiles review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

If you have never seen this film - get it now!

I had to write a review on this film because it is one of my favourite films of all time!

Steve Martin plays a hard-working family man who is trying to get home to his family for thanks giving - but against the elements (e.g. bad weather, money etc) he struggles and the journey is both long and eventful. Along the way he meets John Candy who plays a self-employed businessman who adds to Steve Martin's grief with his irritating habits. As they part from each other they keep "bumping" into each other again - and the journey is hilarious.

I would say it is both John Candy and Steve Martins finest performance - and together they are a brilliant comedy pair. Don't think twice about watching this - watch it now!!!
