Starring Steve Martin & John Candy

All Neal Page (Steve Martin) wants to do is make it home from a business trip in New York City and spend Thanksgiving with his family in Chicago. Instead, he finds himself rerouted from New York's La Guardia Airport to Wichita, Kansas. With no other options, Neal decides to share a room in a fleabag hotel with Del Griffith (John Candy), a shower-curtain-ring salesman and fellow stranded traveler. Although Neal finds Del to be a buffoon, he just can't seem to get away from him. To make matters worse, all their efforts to get back to Chicago fail as trains break down and rental cars catch on fire. Along the way they encounter crazy cabbies, redneck truck drivers, and oversexed bus passengers. John Hughes's (SIXTEEN CANDLES, THE BREAKFAST CLUB) first film to feature adults after his success with teen films features fine performances from Martin and Candy. Kevin Bacon, who appeared in Hughes's next film, SHE'S HAVING A BABY, makes a small but humorous appearance, as does Edie McClurg, known for her role as the high school secretary in FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF.

Seen this hundreds of times, but still love it, Steve Martin, and the late, great John Candy at their best, a true John Hughes comedy classic.:D

"Where's your other hand?"
"Between two pillows"
"Those aren't pillows!"

Great film. Anyone who has thought about seeing the woeful "Due Date", don't bother. Get this.

Absolutely agree, this has many more laughs, better characters and is simply a classic. Due Date is a poor poor attempt at something similar.

Great film but my favourite Steve Martin comedy is the one with Michael Caine, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

That cracks me up every time I see it... it shouldn't, but it does X)

Planes trains is one of the all time greats films, "a f*ing datsun......etc" - genius.

Due date is also very funny and I don't feel the need to slate it just because of its obvious foundations. "I'm sorry I drunk your dad" - brilliant.

1. Cab.
2. Okay. Where are ya goin?
1. Chicago.
2. Chicago? You know you’re in St. Louis?
1. Yes, I do.
2. Why don’t you take a plane? It’s a lot faster.
1. If I wanted a joke I’d follow you into the john and watch you take a leak. Now, are you going to help me or are you going to stand there like a slab of meat with mittens?

Classic , makes me laugh just thinking of all the lines.

John candy's deadpan excuses when the traffic cop stops him in that burnt out car is sooo funny.

I never get bored of this film. Extremely funny without any vulgar language.

What a huge loss John Candy is.
