'Planes, Trains & Automobiles' (1987)Like many of John Hughes's movies, "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" is simultaneously hysterical and warm and sweet.
A major winter storm has crippled travel across much of the United States, and uptight businessman Neal Page (Steve Martin) finds himself with few options in his desperate attempt to get home to his family in Chicago in time for Thanksgiving dinner. Eventually, Page pairs up with bubbly, eccentric salesman Del Griffith (John Candy) on a snowbound, cross-country adventure with results that are truly funny.
