Planes, Trains and Automobiles has become the classic Thanksgiving film and I haven’t seen it in probably over a decade, so I thought I’d throw it on. It’s a classic for a reason, there’s not a ton to add to the conversation because it’s just a well-done holiday movie. Steve Martin and John Candy are both stellar, they have great chemistry and the comedic moments between the two are flawless. The story is conventional by today’s standards but it’s a ton of fun watching these characters journey through obstacles while also trying to make Thanksgiving dinner. It’s a great movie, I have almost no any complaints really, I get why it’s so beloved. Planes, Trains and Automobiles was great when I watched it so long ago and it’s still great after I finally revisited it, it’s funny and heartwarming in the best ways.
