Escape Film Club
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.
