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

"Re-watch - May 20th My thoughts keep coming back to this film from time to time, so I finally gave in & decided to sit down with it again. Most of it I still remembered, while a few parts had escaped my memory (like the fact Kevin Bacon is in this). It's hilarious, heartfelt, and the sort of film I'm sure to watch more times in my life. It's also the sort of film I appreciate more the older I get. It doesn't quite cross that line of Greatness for me, but I highly enjoy it anyway. Just a though"
