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.

    Since the dawn of movies there have been great comedic actors and actresses that have become synonymous with ageless humor. Names like the Three Stooges, Lucy, Laurel and Hardy, Monty Python, Jonathan Winters, Gene Wilder and now you can add John Candy. Let's be honest. We've all wished we had an Uncle Buck or that we were like Uncle Buck. If times are good, Uncle Buck is a good friend to hang out with and be care free again. If you're feeling down, he makes you feel like there's always someone who's going through the same tough times and can show you the way back, and he's the one person who doesn't judge you but always is looking out for you and has your back. Even if he has to protect you from yourself.
