Entertaining 1987 flick from John Hughes.
‘Planes, Trains and Automobiles’ is an enjoyable watch, pure and simple. The pairing of Steve Martin and John Candy is a great one, with both holding their own and bringing a lot of humour to events. Away from those two, you also have interesting bit part roles for Kevin Bacon and Michael McKean.
The plot is one that could’ve got repetitive, but the film keeps it interesting for the whole 93 minutes. I will say, not that it’s an all that noteworthy thing, that it has more (overly?) dramatic moments than I was anticipating, especially at the end. I was expecting a flat-out comedy, but the additional heart fits in well enough.
It’s a film 100% worth watching, if only for the humour of the two leads; there are some funny gags in there.
How about those Bears?
Planes, Trains and Automobiles is written, produced and directed by John Hughes. It stars Steve Martin and John Candy. Music is by Ira Newborn and cinematography by Donald Peterman.
Marketing man Neal Page (Martin) is in a last ditch dash to get from New York to Chicago in time for the family Thanksgiving dinner. Unfortunately obstacles halt his every advancement, the biggest of which is the man who fate has decreed is his companion for the trip; Del Griffith (Candy), a larger than life shower ring salesman whose outlook on life is considerably different to Neal’s.
If you haven’t seen it yet? Then what is your excuse? You owe it to yourself to let this wonderful film into your life. John Hughes pitches two of America’s then biggest comedy stars together and puts them on a trip where everything that can go wrong, does! Cue chaos with the methods of transport in the title. Yet as funny as the mishaps are, and they are, with a number of events being things many of us can associate with, they would be nothing without the expert characterisations. Both as performed by a never better Martin and Candy, but also as written by Hughes.
Neal Page is anal retentive, snobbish and cynicism in a suit, Del Griffith appears oafish, over talkative and comes bedecked in cheapo winter wear. As time, options and sanity start to ebb away, desperation takes a hold and a surprising co-dependency starts to form. Something that beautifully sets us up for a finale that is as touching as it is genuinely surprising. It has mature comedy characterisations for the grown ups and chaotic actions for the younger crowd. Perfect and it should be prescribed at least once a year for a pick me up. 9/10
Heart Warming and Hilarious
Neal Page (Steve Martin) just wants to go home to his family, but the weather, the car rental company, the railways, and pretty much everyone else just won’t let him get there.
If thats not bad enough, Del Griffith (John Candy) a shower curtain ring salesman, is there to keep him company, and he may be his only chance.
Caught up in Hilarious Circumstances time and time again, the duo ride the roller-coaster all the way to a heart warming conclusion.
Very Funny, this remains one of John Candys Finest Roles ever.
RIP John Candy and John Hughes
To me, Planes, Trains and Automobiles is John Hughes’s third best movie (next to Ferris Bueller’s Day-Off and The Breakfast Club) and it’s also the best movie of both Steve Martin and John Candy.
It’s a funny story about an uptight businessman called Neil Page who is trying to get home to his family for Thanksgiving. But along the way he gets stuck with a good-natured but annoying blabbermouth screw-up named Del Griffith. The two of them go on a really rough trip home (most of it is Del Griffith’s fault), especially Neil. But I like how Neil can’t stand Del after all the trouble he got him into but in the end Neil learns to appreciate Del and considers him his friend and even invites him to spend Thanksgiving at his house.
As well as being a great comedy, there are also some dramatic moments. Like when in the motel room where Neil rants about how annoying Del is and how he talks too much but Del responds with his touching “You wanna hurt me…” speech and that he likes who he is. And it’s also surprising at the end when Neil learns that Del is homeless and his wife has been dead for years.
It’s also sad to know that John Candy (1950-1994) and John Hughes (1950-2009) are both dead because they were both legends of their time. But the funny movies that they made like Uncle Buck, Home Alone and of course, Planes, Trains and Automobiles will remain classics for years to come.
