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

A good movie

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 Huguesโ€™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

"Re-watch - Nov. 25th I know it's obvious to watch this around Thanksgiving, but that doesn't mean it's a bad idea. I haven't watched the movie too often either, so it felt justified. The film hits a little harder in 2020, knowing I can't go home to my own family much like Del Griffith. And yet it also serves as a reminder of what a hassle the holiday travels can be, making me feel a little better I didn't have to deal with it this year. When it ended I watched most of the supplementals on my B"

" 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. "
