    ★★★

    I'm not going to complain about the runtime because I prepared myself for a long haul. And this is a massive story that certainly justifies its length. I was totally onboard with this for the first 30 minutes or so but had less and less interest as it went along.

It didn't make me breathe any better out of my nose or make my sore throat any better - but it sure did cheer me up.

    John Candy was just the absolute best. I wish he was my uncle.
