This is a good comedy with a dark twist to it, like a lot of John Hughes movies. The up side is that it's funny and really quotable...

"Hi, I'm Buck Melanoma, Moley Russell's wart..."

It's John Candy in one of his funnier roles. Check it out, watch it, then watch it again.

By now, I have seen most of the movies directed by John Hughes (I’m still missing ‘Sixteen Candles’ and ‘She's Having a Baby’) but except for ‘The Breakfast Club’ which really deserves its stellar reputation, I can’t say I was really impressed by his work and this movie was not an exception. Indeed, I didn't think it was that great. I mean, sure, it was not bad either but that's a... read more

Kyle Ellis posted a review 10 months, 1 week ago

“There are some very negative critical reviews on this movie, which I think personally is unjustified. This film is very funny indeed, especially when the bowling ball falls on Buck's head. John Candy gives possibly his best performance here as Buck Russell. John Candy was one talented actor, evident in Planes, Trains and Automobiles and Cool Runnings, and I think comedy lost a truly great actor when he died, and I don't think he ever got the respect he so rightly deserved. This film is very funny indeed, sometimes the jokes are a little over-familiar, and the sentimentality gets in the way at times. Out of the child stars, who were all excellent, Macaulay Culkin of Home Alone fame is a standout. Cute and self-assured suits Culkin like a glove. There was great chemistry between the stars, a” read more

my painful to read 2019 movie diary (12 movies items)

" I never really gave a shit about John Candy bc I thought he was just a generic "funny 80s fat guy" the way Chris Farley was for the 90s. What I found is that while this movie is cringeworthily dumb, Mr. Candy has a unique and indelible sense of charisma that just borders on annoying. I can't stand the Home Alone kid, or the cunty teenage daughter in this movie and the other one dimensional characters created to contrast how supposedly wacky and quirky Uncle Buck acts, but it's fairly amusing "
