Box set of films starring the American comedian. In 'Uncle Buck' (1989), Candy plays the jobless, happy-go-lucky slob of an uncle who is asked to babysit his niece and nephew (Gaby Hoffman and Macaulay Culkin) at short notice. His hidden flair for childcare soon emerges, even as his relationship with long-suffering girlfriend Chanice (Amy Madigan) takes a turn for the worse. John 'Home Alone' Hughes directs. In 'The Great Outdoors' (1988), Chet (Candy) is a family man whose summer vacation is ruined when his overbearing brother-in-law, Roman (Dan Aykroyd), invites himself along with his family. The rivalry between the two is based on Roman's so-called success and Chet's feelings of inadequacy, but all is not as it seems. In 'Brewster's Millions' (1985), Richard Pryor plays a man who stands to inherit $300 million - if he can first spend $30 million in 30 days without letting anyone in on the reason. This proves harder than he'd imagined, even with the assistance of team-mate Spike (Candy). In 'Going Berserk' (1983), limousine driver John Bourgignon (Candy) is engaged to Congressman's daughter Nancy Reese (Ally Mills). With her father, Ed, running for President, and determined to rid the country of cult leader Sun Yi, John's marriage preparations soon begin to take a turn for the worse. Finally, in 'The Blues Brothers' (1980), brothers Jake and Elwood (John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd) have sold their souls to rhythm'n'blues, but still lend a hand when the church orphanage in which they were raised is threatened with closure. Resolving to get their old band together and stage a fund-raising gig, the brothers have God on their side but everyone else against them - and that includes a bunch of Country and Western rednecks, an angry chapter of neo-Nazi thugs, the massed ranks of the Chicago police force, and Jake's psychotic ex-girlfriend Camille (Carrie Fisher).

Blues Brothers alone is worth that! :thumbsup: Great find.

How much of a part did he have in the Blues Brothers?

Not really the John Candy selection unless he's in the lead billing which he's not in Brewster's Millions either.

Should include Trains,Planes and Automobiles (his best IMO) and Cool Runnings.
