Titles Comprise:

Uncle Buck (Dir. John Hughes, 1989): An idle, good natured bachelor is left in charge of his nephew and nieces during a family crisis. Unaccustomed to family life, Buck soon charms his younger relatives, but his style doesn't impress everyone, including his girlfriend.

The film charts his progress from slob to a reasonable human being by having to manage with girlfriend troubles, unemployment, a sex mad neighbour, cooking breakfast and a beautiful but rebellious niece.

The Great Outdoors (Dir. Howard Deutch, 1988): When an unannounced, uninvited and unwelcome family of fun-loving misfits converge upon a lakeside resort to join their relatives for a summer of relaxation, the result is anything but restful.

It's a vacationer's worst nightmare, as wheeler-dealer Aykroyd, his sexually repressed wife and eerie twin daughters 'join' the easygoing Candy and his straight-laced clan for a season of 'fun' in the sun. Unfortunately, the only thing these two in-laws have in common is their intense dislike for each other. Soon, it's brother-in-law against brother-in-law in an uproarious and hilarious fight to the finish to see which one really knows how to enjoy 'The Great Outdoors'.

Brewster's Millions (Dir. Walter Hill, 1985): Brewster (Pryor), a lowly pitcher with the minor league Hackensack Bulls baseball team suddenly is left $300 million by a distant relative. But there's a catch; he must spend $30 million in thirty days without having any assets to show for it. And if he reveals it to a soul the real reason why he's throwing away all his cash, he will forfeit everything!

So aided and abetted by his team mate Spike (Candy) and a stream of hangers-on, Brewster begins a spending spree that would bring any self-respecting accountant to his knees...

Going Berserk:Limo driver John Bourgignon is engaged to Nancy Reese. Her father, Congressman Ed Reese, is running for president and crusading against cult leader Sun Yi. Misadventure and intrigue stalk John and Nancy's path to the altar.

The Blues Brothers:After the release of Jake Blues (John Belushi) from prison, he and brother Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) go to visit the orphanage where they were raised by nuns. They learn that the church stopped its support and will sell the place unless the tax on the property is paid within 11 days.

The brothers decide to raise the money by putting their blues band back together and staging a big gig. They may be on a "mission from God" but they're making enemies everywhere they go. Featuring performances by some of blues finest, James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and co-starring John Candy, Carrie Fisher, Henry Gibson and Steve Lawrence.
