Product Description

Product Description

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 loveable, 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. If it's painful, funny, or just plain crazy, it happens to Neal and Del in Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Every traveler's nightmare in a comedy-come-true!

Amazon.ca

Given the presence of both Steve Martin and John Candy, one would expect this John Hughes comedy to be much, much funnier than it is. Certainly it's not for lack of effort on the part of its stars. Martin is an uptight businessman trying to get home from New York for the holidays. But one thing after another gets in his way--most of it having to do with Candy, a boorish but well-meaning boob who takes a liking to him. Together they travel all over the map; no matter how hard Martin tries to shake him, he can't. But Hughes's writing is never as sharp as it should be and this film winds up being only intermittently humorous. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I haven't been home in years" Nov. 28 2002
Format:DVD
In my opinion this is John Candy's best movie. They should dedicate it to him. Steve Martin does a great job playing the cynic. It will have you crying from hysterical laughter or from tugging at your heartstrings. It starts out with "Neal" played by Steve Martin getting out of a marketing meeting late in New York during rush hour he runs to catch a cab for the airport so he can spend Thanksgiving with his family. With two days to get there you figure he should be plenty early. You aren't counting obstacles like "Del" played by John Candy. While Neal is giving money to a lawyer to buy him out of taking a cab in front of him, Del loads his trunk in it and takes off. The meetings and journey these two have after that is one for the record books. Del does everything he can to get Neal home to his family. They must take a Plane, Pickup Truck, Train, Bus, Rental Car, Semi, and the El to make it to Neal's Chicago Home with a detour to Kansas City. Neal may miss his daughters Thanksgiving Play but he will get a life lesson from Del that is priceless. This is a great one to own on DVD.

When I think of "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" I smile. It is an absolutely wonderful movie. Yes, it is regarded as a comedy but when I think of it I think of it as more of a drama. The jokes don't get old. This is probably my favorite comedy of all time. Hughes takes the traveling nightmare genre to a whole new level. It's more a triumph in script writing than anything

For those who don't already know Planes, Trains and Automobiles is simple in its approach. Everything that can go wrong does. It's a comic routine that can be funny, but here it is a trip to hysterical. The plot is simple enough as well. Neal Page (Steve Martin) is on his way home for Thanksgiving. He's your typical businessman that works in New York and has a family he wants to see in Chicago. The only problem is everything from delayed flights to ripped up car tickets happen on the way. Only worsening matters, Del Griffith (John Candy), is along for the ride. An annoying shower curtain ring salesman, Neal can't get rid of him no matter how hard he tries.

John Candy gives the performance of his too short career as the traveling shower curtain ring salesman Del Griffith. What makes Candy's performance so impressive is that while Del is an obnoxious, annoying slob, Candy shows that this is a very lonely, sweet, kind, and caring man with a great heart. This is a man who is putting his needs behind the needs of another person, a complete stranger in Neil Page. Candy creates an incredibly complex man, who the audience really gets to know and genuinely care about. They say comedies are the hardest films to get nominated for Oscars, which is true. And while "PT & A" is no Best Picture winner, it certainly in my mind has a performance not just worthy of a nomination but of an Oscar as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars great on blu-ray with worthwhile extras Jan. 5 2014
By Cheryl TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Planes Trains and Automobiles is a great Thanksgiving road-trip (buddy?) comedy, that looks better on blu-ray and contains some excellent bonus material. For the (sale) price it was worth it to visually upgrade, as well as own the additional featurettes. Contained on this blu-ray are the making-of (which includes a q & a with writer-director John Hughes and stars Steve Martin and John Candy), as well as a couple of John Hughes retrospectives. There is a also a deleted scene (worth viewing) and a tribute to John Candy. For any fan of the film and its participants, the bonus material alone will be of interest. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a seasonal laugh with heart.

Plains,Trains and Automobiles(released Nov/87)starring Steve Martin and John Candy,is one of the late John Hughe's biggest successes on the screen.It is also one of the late John Candy's best films.John Hughes had a great feel in the 80s for teen speak and angst with such films as Pretty in Pink,16 Candles and The Breakfast Club,which established the now famous brat pack to his audiences.But I don't believe his forte was in comedy per se.His ideas in that regard stemmed less from situations but more in your face and exaggerated sight gags;that is less subtlety,more outrageousness.However there is no denying the then box office appeal of this movie and his others such as from the National Lampoon series.
This film involves the story of one Neal Page(Steve Martin) as a businessman who is anxious to leave NYC on a business there and get home to Chicago before Thanksgiving.He is hindered by a slow moving client(played wonderfully by William Windom-he also can be seen in the closing moments of the film,post credits)who stares and stares at Martin's presentation for what seems forever.When Page finally gets to leave he hails a cab and has a competing run down with Kevin Bacon(in a cameo role)and loses that.When he finally manages to get a cab it is surreptitiously scooped up by one Del Griffith(John Candy).It is not a good day so far and things are looking down from here for;three long days in fact.
Page finally manages to get on his flight and who sits beside him,but Mr Griffith who is a non stop annoyance to Page.Page learns,among other things whether he likes it or not,Griffith is a shower curtain hook salesman who is also going home to his wife.Along the way the flight is diverted to Wichita,Kansas due to a storm and Page and Griffith end up together once again.
