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

Humorous and affecting

"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

" Date: 11/28/2019 Viewed: DVD Re-watch Note: Like most people on Thanksgiving, I like to rewatch this movie. This is my favorite John Hughes movie next to Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Sixteen Candles. The humor is still funny and the characters are great. Everyone in this movie is memorable and are filled with good personalities. Not much else that I can say about this movie that has not been said before. Check it out if you never seen it before. "
