PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES (Theatrical release USA 1987)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Planes, Trains and Automobiles
—skillfully woven story—delivers sweetness, comedy, and a good life lesson all at once with finesse. The movie pairs John Candy and Steve Martin to deliver a more than good piece of entertainment. Don’t miss it. It’s classic holiday fare that has high re-watchability. Look for Kevin Bacon in the film. Great work for Director John Hughes.
