Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Planes, Trains and Automobiles ★★★½

Steve Martin and John Candy are on fine form in this buddy comedy. The former is an uptight and snarky executive, the latter a slobbish but ultimately amiable curtain ring salesman.

It's predictable and lays the sentiment on a bit too heavily at times but contains several great comedic moments, in particular two classic rage-filled Steve Martin monologues.

Watch out for a cameo by Kevin Bacon in the early taxi scene.
