John Candy stars in this John Hughes comedy as an idle, good-natured bachelor who's left in charge of his nephew and nieces during a family crisis. Unaccustomed to suburban life, fun-loving Uncle Buck soon charms his younger relatives Miles and Maizy with his hefty cooking and his new way of doing the laundry. But his carefree style doesn't impress everyone, including Tia (Jean Kelly), his rebellious teenage niece, and Chanice (Amy Madigan), his impatient girlfriend. Uncle Buck is the last person you'd think of to watch the kids. But with a little luck and a lot of love, he manages to surprise everyone in this heartwarming family comedy.

Fresh: Very cute comedy starring the late great John Candy at his most huggable best.
A Classic Always Worth Another Look
The late John Candy did some beautiful films amidst a lot of crap. This is truly one of those films with heart, sweetness and some pure funny moments. You know the story - whacky Uncle Buck must take care of a pair of his sister's kids for a while. The youngest is just a second or third grader getting by, whereas his older teenager sister is really a nasty lass who has problems with everyone and lashes out constantly with some really stinging words and actions. Of course, it's up to Uncle Buck to tame the crew here, in 90 minutes or less, and of course he gets the job done. Rent this one when you have a free evening, it will bring back some pleasant memories. We lost John Candy way too soon, we miss you, Buck.
