The Breakdown of 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles'

Thanksgiving is long past in Canada and has been a few weeks ago in America, but most are still swept up in holiday spirit with Christmas on its way. It is a perfect time to settle down with a fun holiday comedy, even if that holiday is Thanksgiving. This week Scott and I dive deep into the John Hughes directed holiday comedy classic starring the iconic pairing of Steve Martin and John Candy in Planes, Trains and Automobiles. 

We look at why this has become a classic for many, how it compares to modern comedies, the way it departs from previous Hughes pictures, how it blends action and drama, and we discuss many of the major moments of the movie. We had a blast spending over an hour on the picture, and this also was Scott's first ever viewing of the movie.
