Neal Page is an advertising executive who just wants to fly home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his family. But all Neal Page gets is misery. Misery named Del Griffith — a loud mouthed, but nevertheless lovable, salesman who leads Neal on a cross-country, wild goose chase that keeps Neal from tasting his turkey. Steve Martin (Neal) and John Candy (Del) are absolutely wonderful as two guys with a knack for making the worst of a bad situation. If it's painful, funny, or just plain crazy, it happens to Neal and Del in "Planes, Trains and Automobiles." Every traveller's nightmare in a comedy-come-true!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It is, of course, always a pleasure to watch Martin's steam-gauge face register his rising internal pressures and to witness his exquisitely expressed blowoffs. But Candy offers even more insinuating delights.
Fresh: Man versus technology has been one of the staples of screen comedy since the earliest silent days, and Hughes makes the most of the format here packing as many of the frustrations of modern life as he can into this calamitous travelog of roadside America.
Fresh: The script and direction by Hughes ... amount to wobbly passes that Martin and Candy turn into touchdowns anyway.
Fresh: A riotously springy holiday knockabout.
Best movie ever!
My dad and I love this movie, it's our favorite movie, it probably would've got a pg rating if he didn't say the f word like 20 times in a minute. But definately watch this movie. You can watch it 3000 times and still laugh
RIP Mr Hughes
One the best of all time. You were a part of my youth and therefore a part of my life... Thank you for what you have given us. You'll be missed!!
