I never actually appreciated this film until I was a teenager. I can't remember why but I didn't hold it in high regard until I was about 14 when I watched the most ancient of VHS's.

Its Thanksgiving and Neal Page (Steve Martin) an uptight, judgemental advertising exec needs to get home cross country to his family. He manages to hit a low on luck and every attempt to get home is foi... read more

After watching so many disappointing flicks starring Steve Martin, I kind of lost faith in the guy. Fortunately, this time, I was pleasantly surprised. Indeed, I really liked it and I especially enjoyed the beginning in the conference room and the race for the taxi. Later on, there is some great chemistry between John Candy and Steve Martin and loads of good jokes along the road. It may not be a m... read more

"As much fun as I've had on this little journey, I'm sure one day I'll look back on it and laugh."

Planes, Trains & Automobiles represented a unique and unpredictable cinematic undertaking for prolific filmmaker John Hughes. After all, prior to this 1987 feature, Hughes was renowned for his contributions to the '80s teen movie genre. Unlike other filmmakers who made teen flicks, Hug... read more

Filmsite's Greatest Funniest Movie Moments/Scenes (224 movies items)

"The howlingly bad dialogue and acting, especially by Eros (Dudley Manlove): ("Because all you of Earth... are idiots!", "Your stupid minds! Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!"), the pathetic attempts to pass off chiropractor Tom Mason as Bela Lugosi's 'The Ghoul Man' by covering the lower part of his face with his cape throughout the film , the laughable special effects and cheap sets, and the bad continuity (day and night alternate within scenes)"

"The Moment: John Candy bites back after taking Steve Martin's abuse for days: "You think what you want about me; I'm not changing. I like... I like me." Only In The '80s: ...did you really want to be buddies with the characters in buddy movies. If It Was Made Today: Robert Downey Jr and Zacharius Galifianakis would star."

" Director: John Hughes Starring: Steve Martin, John Candy, Laila Robins, Michael McKean, Dylan Baker Plot: A man must struggle to travel home for Thanksgiving, with an obnoxious slob of a shower ring salesman his only companion. Easily on par with Hughes' earlier efforts, Planes, Trains & Automobiles is of a rare breed of comedy; it's humorous and affecting, and there's a genuine heart amidst all of the hysterics. It's difficult to imagine the film having any detractors since it's simply impos"

thescriptlab's 10 Classic Opposite Scenes (10 movies items)

"As far as movie premises being based off of the “Opposites Scene,” it doesn't get much better than Jon Hughes’ Planes, Trains, & Automobiles. Neal Page (Steve Martin) is a self-absorbed cynic, determined to get home in time for Thanksgiving. Del Griffith (John Candy) is an uncouth blabbermouth, who also happens to be a shower ring salesman. As fate would have it, these two opposites end up traveling together on their journey to Chicago. Let the comedy ensue! There are plenty of funny “Op"
