Planes, Trains and Automobiles



What's it about?

An irritable marketing executive, Neal Page, is heading home to Chicago for Thanksgiving when a number of delays force him to travel with a well-meaning but overbearing shower ring curtain salesman, Del Griffith.


Why did we pick it?

The pinnacle road trip film, Planes, Trains & Automobiles is an example of a basic premise done right. Steve Martin brings his signature comic timing and cynical attitude which pairs perfectly with the fleeting optimism and warmth that John Candy brings to the screen.


Who's in it? Steve Martin - Neal Page
