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.

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

25 From 87: My Favorite Films Of 1987 (25 movies items)

" IMO this is John Candy's best movie role (& yeah, that includes Uncle Buck). He does an excellent job of portraying a pain in the ass who can touch a person's last nerve & yet in the end, have just enough pull at their heartstrings to make him endurable. Plus, his comedic chemistry here with Steve Martin is impeccable. For me, this is the only holiday movie that I consider as a true Thanksgiving movie. Therefore, in addition to the football game, I consider Planes, Trains & Automobiles as "

"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"
