Since this movie had a really good reputation, I was quite eager to check it out and I had some rather high expectations. On the other hand, after watching so many disappointing flicks starring Steve Martin, to be honest, I kind of lost faith in the guy. On top of that, I always had a hard time to care for John Hugues’s work and, after watching almost all his movies, I came up to the conclusion ... 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

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- November 2015 (22 movies items)

" Netflix- 1hr. 32min. First Viewing While it can be way too broad and cloying, Planes, Trains & Automobiles often works due to the efforts of the films leads. As mentioned, things can be too broad; screwball comedy can work, but PTA often goes for forced chaos rather than organic comedy. It's when the film stops forcing things and lets Candy and Martin do the heavy lifting that the movie really excels. Both create believable, human characters that ground the movie in something real."
