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.

One of Macaulay Culkin's lesser known roles, the star of this show is undoubtedly John Candy anyway. It must have been heaven for any film director in the late 80's/early 90's to just pair together Candy, Culkin and family slapstick comedy and know that it would just work no matter what.

This is a heartwarming tale of a lowlife uncle drafted in to look after his brother's children w... read more

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

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 "
