The celebration of the post #300 coincides with the celebration of thanksgiving, so what a better time than this to check the #1 movie about this holiday.
So, let me get this out of the way: Planes, Trains and Automobiles in an amazing movie. It’s one of those rare moments when every aspect of the movie just come together perfectly. Not only is it the best movie in John Hughes’ amazing career, but it also features Steve Martin and John Candy – both comedic geniuses in their own right – at their very best.
We might not know about thanksgiving here in Europe, but snowstorms, commuting, snowstorms and cancelled flights while trying to get back home are things are universal themes we have absolutely no problems connecting with.
Packed with laughters and tears, Planes, Trains & Automobiles is not just Hughes’ best, but also an absolute pinnacle for both Steve Martin and John Candy.
