Product Description

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

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!

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 50 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.

Let me start by saying that this is one of my favorite comedies of all time. I've loved this movie for years and I can watch it over and over again. I personally don't see how anyone could not like this movie, but you can't please everybody.
During the movie, Steve Martin is trying to get home to Chicago for Thanksgiving, but his plane lands in Kansas where he's stuck with Del Griffith (John Candy). They do everything they can to get home, but something always goes wrong. And you will laugh through almost the entire movie.
You've probably noticed that I gave this DVD 4 stars, and not 5. My reason for this: There are no special features. It seems like Paramound is just lazy when they put out DVD's. Almost every DVD I have that has no special features are by Paramount. There had to be interviews with Steve Martin and John Candy when the movie was made, or do some new interviews with Steve Martin and John Hughes. I would like to correct one reviewer about them cutting scenes from the DVD. I assume you are talking about the funny scene on the plane when they are being served their food. This is a scene that was not included in the movie at all, it's just added sometimes to the TV version. But I still think that scene should have been included on the DVD. Not as a deleted scene that you could view by itself, but actually included in the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartstoppingly Funny May 2 2004
Format:DVD
Originally released in 1987, "Planes, Trains And Automobiles" stands as one of my all - time favorite movies. The writing is sharp and witty, the laughs are nonstop, and the action is absolutely superb, especially the late, great John Candy.
Steve Martin is Neal Page, an ad exec on a business trip who wants to fly back to Chicago so he can spend Thanksgiving with his family. Unfortunately, things that go as planned. First, he can't catch a cab. And to make matters worse, his 6:00 flight has been cancelled. While waiting for a later flight, he meets Del Griffith, an overweight blabbermouth who smokes cigarettes and sells shower curtains for a living. It seems that Neil can't escape Dell. First, he sits next to him on the plane, during which he chews his ear off before falling asleep. Soon, the plane lands in Wichita because of a snow storm in Chicago. Neil and Dell share a room together, which is disasterous. They wind up travelling across the country by car, bus and train. The laughs keep coming, and Candy steals the show.
I highly recommend this film if you love to laugh. This film has some of the funniest comedy sequences I've ever seen, and again, John Candy is hilarious. We miss you, John!
