A Classic of its time!By a customer from Dorset, England , 22 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Candy makes a fantastic affable salesman who takes life in his stride and Martin the perfect choice as the miserable rich guy who expects all to go well. the kind of movie you can easily watch more than once with classic scenes and memorable moments, the nails in the dashboard scene and the cuddling up in bed were perfectly executed by two of the funniest guys in showbiz, a truly memorable tribute for John Candy.

My favourite movie of all timeBy Derek Illman from Cheshire, England , 05 Jun 2006Without doubt, my all time favourite movie.
I've watched it maybe a dozen times and I still crack up on the lead in to some of the scenes. Steve Martin does what I think he does best, veering from an over grumpy character to one who thaws occasionaly through gritted teeth. The late great John Candy's excellent performance as the ultimate travelling salesman is a must see.
The unlikely pair are thrown together when delays to a flight home for Thanksgiving leaves Martin with no alternative but to join Candy on a laugh a minute road trip adventure in an attempt to get home in time.
It's a real family movie with only one 'adult' moment in an airport when Martin confronts a Car Hire receptionist and blasts her when yet another means of transportation fails miserably - although her response to him is an absuolute classic and well worth keeping an eye out for!
Miss this at your peril, a super film!

BrilliantBy a customer from Kent, England , 06 Mar 2006This is my all time favourite movie - it's got the best of John Candy and Steve Martin, loads and loads of laughs and a decent story line. If I could only buy one DVD, this would be the one - what more can I say?
Very FunnyBy a customer from preston, LANCASHIRE , 01 Mar 2006Every time I watch this film it makes me laugh. Good film
Classic DVD/MovieBy a customer from Brighton , 31 Dec 2005Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, This brilliant comedy is a movie that should be viewed every holiday season, and maybe a few more times during the year as well.
Neal Page (Steve Martin) is stuck in a board meeting, soon to be late for a flight that will get him home in time for Thanksgiving. When things dont go as planned at the airport, he meets Del Griffith (John Candy), a lovable yet infinitely annoying shower curtain ring salesman. Together, they become the flawless odd couple and their adventure becomes one that deserves a high-ranking spot in film history.
Once youve experienced this film, you simply have to come back to it. The two lead actors pull viewers into every situation, no matter how absurd it may be, playing nearly every scene to perfection. Countless cameos, including Kevin Bacon and Martin Ferraro, add to the proceedings. Director John Hughes flawlessly evokes every bit of comedy from every scene, having experience with other films in the genre like Uncle Buck and Ferris Bueller. this is a film that should be viewed around christmas time without question.
