Both Steve Martin and John Candy are perfectly cast in this superb John Hughes comedy. It is not just the fact that it is hilarious but the fact it has got such a warm heart too. There was no better comedy actor who could portray a broken heart better than John Candy. There are too many funny scenes to list or describe, but the most poignant part of the film is seeing Steve Martin sat on the train remembering all the moments he had spent with John Candy's character and then realising what his situation actually was. The next scene of showing John Candy looking at Steve Martins family is genuinely one of the most emotional scenes i have seen in a film, never mind a comedy film. It is pure class and makes you believe in the good in human nature. I challenge any person to watch this film and not have even the slightest lump in the throat at the end. What can be better than to be made to cry with laughter and then cry at the fragility of human love and compassion. A wonderful and ful…
Just how many things can go wrong on a journey from New York to Chicago for a family Thanksgiving, is cleverly exploited by writer/director/producer John Hughes in this entertaining, if somewhat over-inclined towards slapstick, comedy. Steve Martin is the fall guy in this one, so he adroitly gives a rather restrained performance, allowing John Candy to go over the top — which he does! A little too gross at times, Candy does handle his final scenes rather well. Martin is no slouch either. The movie is dominated by the two comedians. An hour or so after seeing the movie, you don't really remember any of the other fleetingly introduced characters, except maybe the needs-a-spittoon joker who reminds our heroes that unless they happen to be steers or broncs, they can't board a train at Wichita. "Stubbsville, thirty miles away, is where you board a people train!" Well, we would have liked to see a bit more of the people train before taking to the road again, but nonethe…
Loved it when I first watched it at 13/14, love it still now 12 years on. This film ticks all the boxes of everything you could want from a film (except horror maybe??). Possibly the most underrated film of all time?! Funniest moment for me is when Steve Martin's character not so politely asks for a replacement car… The acting makes the most unlikely of circumstances seem perfectly plausible and you are caught up in the storyline throughout. I can imagine that this film has actually made a positive difference to many people's lives and that there are many people who would benefit greatly from this film. A must watch! That is all.
