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!

    “You know what would make me happy? A couple of balls and an extra set of fingers.” Love that line!

  • ‘Begin your Holiday Season’ Film!

    By jordan_NH
    Best ‘beginning of the holidays🎄’ film you can watch, for sure! I like to watch on or around Thanksgiving 🦃. If you live in the Midwest, you will especially enjoy. It has some swear words, so good for the 13+ in your family.
  • Holiday classic

    By johnny1323
    They don’t make them like this no more. What a classic comedy with two great actors.
  • Over the top ridiculous

    By MTM.MAN
    Not all that funny and downright dumb. Much of it is just not likely, like the part where Martin finds his rental car is the only one not in its place and no one around to help him.
