Thanksgiving or Bust🍗

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I’m thankful for each and everyone of my loyal readers. Today’s review is a great big helping of Planes, Trains and Automobiles. The only Thanksgiving movie I can think of. Thanksgiving isn’t really a holiday that offers itself to a lot of movies or specials. Planes, Trains and Automobiles is more about the journey then the destination. Specifically, a man trying to get home to his family by Thanksgiving. Steve Martin plays that man and on his way he meets John Candy’s character who makes his life a living nightmare. John Candy actually delivers one of the best performances of his career. They get into all sorts of shenanigans. The funniest being when they have to share a hotel bed. They first travel by plane, then by train, and of course by automobile. This is actually a John Hughes film. Which makes it his first movie not starring teenagers. Planes, Trains and Automobiles is rated R, but it’s actually very harmless. There’s literally one scene that makes it R, but it’s so funny that the movie benefits from it. Steve Martin’s character gets so frustrated that he lets out a long stream of F bombs (18 by him, 1 by the woman he talks to) in about a minute. If you haven’t seen Planes, Trains and Automobiles, I recommend checking it out. After you’ve finished your turkey of course. 😉
