An advertising executive who just wants to fly home to spend Thanksgiving with his family is stuck with a loud but loveable salesman during an unbelievable succession of blizzards, transfers, strikes and delays.

Two businessmen travelling from New York to Chicago get sidetracked in a public transportation nightmare. Neal is a stuffy ad executive who doesn't get along with people like the portly, gregarious salesman who sits next to him on the plane to Chicago.

But when their flight is rerouted, the unlikely duo becomes entangled in a series of hilarious misadventures as they attempt to get home before Thanksgiving. They have to deal with sleazy motels, run-down rent-a-cars and crazy cabbies. It's enough to make them swear off travel forever!

Planes, Trains and Automobiles is an absolute gem of the 80s
ultimately due to how funny it is, and also sad at the same time. John Candy is superb, and he makes you feel sad as you know there are people like his character in the world.
Steve Martin is also brilliant! MUST SEE.

Steve Martin and the late great John Candy have never been better, in this superb John Hughes comedy. As it travels across country with the miss-matched pair on a nightmare journey of errors. But what makes this film so special is that it also has a tender heart, and the ending is enough to leave the most hardened man with a lump in the throat. This is superbly acted and with perfect comic timing from both stars. Planes Trains and Automobiles is one of the best comedies of the late 80's and deserves repeated viewing.
A comedy classic!
