Directed by John Hughes | 1987

With Steve Martin, John Candy, Laila Robins, Michael McKean, Kevin Bacon

“Strange, how much poignancy creeps into this comedy, and only becomes stronger while we're laughing.”
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Though they collaborated on eight films, the high-water mark of the Candy-Hughes creative partnership is undoubtedly this anti-buddy road-trip comedy. On his way to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his family, buttoned-up ad exec Neal (Martin) becomes saddled with well-meaning buffoon and shower ring salesman Del (Candy) on a three-day misadventure rife with flaming rental cars, near-death highway experiences, and a bit of awkwardness concerning “two pillows.” Incredibly funny, endlessly quotable, and heartbreakingly human, Planes, Trains & Automobiles is driven by the chemistry of Steve Martin and John Candy, who gives the most big-hearted, moving performance of his career.
