UNCLE BUCK (Theatrical Release USA 1989)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

Uncle Buck
—little edgy toward the end, but needful story—covers classic teenage/adult subject matter well. John Candy shows very well in this movie, has good presence in a well-written story. The movie is ‘full’ and its message not soon forgotten. The child actors are well-grounded and on-spot with the storyline. Thank you  to all involved in ensuring this 1980s film is still available for viewing.
