Planes, Trains and Automobiles

I just love this movie. Steve Martin and John Candy were great together. I was shopping at Costco, and saw this in the bargain bin. I grabbed it and bought it. We watched it yesterday. It's probably about the 20th time I've seen it, and I never get tired of it. Steve Martin plays an uptight businessman trying to get home to Chicago, from New York, in time for Thanksgiving. But, many things conspire to prevent him from doing this. One of them, is John Candy! His character is a traveling shower curtain ring salesman. Delayed flights, cancelled flights, trains breaking down, bus rides and an unsafe car are many of the things they encounter as they go along. One of my favorite scenes in the whole movie is the famous "rental car" scene with Steve Martin and Edie McClurg.
