After a couple months absence, I’m back reviewing again.  Kicking it off with a Thanksgiving movie review

Planes, Trains & Automobiles


Written & Directed by: John Hughes

Starring: Steve Martin & John Candy

Original Release: November 25, 1987

Steve Martin and John Candy make a delightful mismatched pair in this festive movie.. Despite the predictability, the script delivers loads of laughs and numerous comical situations. Some of the best scenes are between Martin and inconsiderate customer service workers, most notably the Marathon car rental lady.  I couldn’t help but roll my eyes at some of insane coincidences that kept bringing Martin and Candy back together, but since it also brought a colorful array of strange characters was forgivable. . The music has that classic 80’s plus John Hughes vibe that is lighthearted and danceable. While not remarkable this classic 80’s film of a holiday traveler’s worst nightmare come true is enjoyable from plane to train to automobile.
