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.

best film ever

I agree about this film I love it!

Great film.

Those arent pillows!!!

Ha ha, this film is soooooo funny.

Agreed! BEST.FILM.EVER.

This is WAY overdue for a "Special Edition" version. I was hoping for one once it got to 20 years old (2007) but still no sign. It would be great to see some of the rumoured THREE HOURS of unused extra footage (even if just as 'extras') that remains locked in a Paramount vault somewhere... from IMDB...

"John Hughes shot over 600,000 feet of film, almost twice the industry average. The rumored three-hour version of the film does indeed exist, although not in order - moreover it's a mess of footage that would take "months, maybe even years" according to Hughes to transform into an actual film. It is locked away in a Paramount vault, and according to Hughes, most of it has probably deteriorated by now."

:-(

Anyway, hot deal!

Brilliant film !

such an awesome film

Easily both Steve Martin and John Candy's best film. Well worth the price
