Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Planes, Trains and Automobiles Summary and Synopsis

Neal Page is an advertising executive who just wants to fly home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his family. But all Neal Page gets is misery. Misery named Del Griffith — a loud mouthed, but nevertheless lovable, salesman who leads Neal on a cross-country, wild goose chase that keeps Neal from tasting his turkey. Steve Martin (Neal) and John Candy (Del) are absolutely wonderful as two guys with a knack for making the worst of a bad situation. If it's painful, funny, or just plain crazy, it happens to Neal and Del in "Planes, Trains and Automobiles." Every traveller's nightmare in a comedy-come-true! An irritable marketing executive, Neal Page, is heading home to Chicago for Thanksgiving when a number of delays force him to travel with a well meaning but overbearing shower ring curtain salesman, Del Griffith.

- Lol doing the mess around !!5 star

Absolutely awesome funny touching and outrageous two guys get stranded over the holidays and try to get back home with all of the mishaps it’s just so worth your time ,some language but I’ve been in some of these situations as a traveler myself it just the best

- #1 movie of all time!5 star

“You know what would make me happy? A couple of balls and an extra set of fingers.” Love that line!

- Nice5 star

Steve Martin is the best .


Love this film so much! I also love wearing Suits from the 1980s

- ‘Begin your Holiday Season’ Film!5 star

Best ‘beginning of the holidays🎄’ film you can watch, for sure! I like to watch on or around Thanksgiving 🦃. If you live in the Midwest, you will especially enjoy. It has some swear words, so good for the 13+ in your family.

- Holiday classic5 star

They don’t make them like this no more. What a classic comedy with two great actors.

- Over the top ridiculous1 star

Not all that funny and downright dumb. Much of it is just not likely, like the part where Martin finds his rental car is the only one not in its place and no one around to help him.

- Best movie ever5 star

I loved this because this is the best movie ever

- sucked4 star

i hated it, it was really really bad most defintely

- 9.8/10!!!5 star

This movie is my favorite!!!!

- Two comedy giants wasted on this awful script1 star

We had to stop watching half way through if we even got that far. Too many F bombs and JCs and GDs. This movie could have been good but it was pretty much just low brow, gross out humor instead of things actually being funny. Just a plain lousy, boring movie.

- This is truly a great film5 star

They don’t make movies like this anymore…the writing, the acting…what an incredible film.

- New To The Nostalgia5 star

I’d never seen this film before today but suddenly feel like I’ve been watching it since I was 5. John Candy and Steve Martin pull you right into their world in a way that is fresh and familiar. 3 cheers and 5 stars!

- Could watch on repeat forever5 star

Steve Martin and John Candy are great in this movie. You can watch it over and over again and the mixture of emotion and comedy is pure joy. It's a timeless classic. John candy is so missed.

- Not too shabby.4 star

This was a pretty funny film! Steve Martin and John Candy were brilliant! Their chemistry was awesome! The only problems I had with this movie were random music where there shouldn’t have been, and too many awkward scenes. Still, it’s worth a watch!

- Steve Martin and John Candy's Best5 star

One of my favorite movies, I loved watching it with my family

- Hilarious5 star

It's hard to go wrong when John Candy is listed as the star. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles may have been his funniest release. It's up there with Summer Vacation. I laughed all the way through. Five stars.

- One of the best5 star

This movie still makes me laugh more than any other movie I've ever seen. Classic.

- Pure comic brilliance5 star

One of THE all time great comedies. John Candy is just so loveable you just want to give him a big hug and somewhere to stay, it's that kind of character development that really gets you emotionally invested in a great movie. Add on to that the superb part played by Steve Martin and you have one of THE all time classics. Who else laughed their arses off at the hotel scene with sharing the bed? Or the underwear in the sink? How about the classic scene where the car catches fire? Some comedies struggle for 1 memorable moment, this one has them in spades. Bravo 10/10.

- AWESOME!5 star


- Great Movie!5 star

This movie is so funny and great!


This movie is amazing its so funny I could watch it over and over again so glad to see these classics on iTunes absolutely love it!!!!!!!!!!

- Touches your heart5 star

This is a great movie it really makes you laugh and it touches your heart.

- Some traditions never seem to get old...5 star

Not all of John Hugh's movies were comedic homeruns but this movie has withstood the test of time and is continually watchable time and time again. It is a Thanksgiving tradition in my home and there are so many subtle moments of sheer magic that was the chemistry of Steve Martin and John Candy together that I know for a certain age group still say to ourselves, "they just don't make them like this anymore". "We were robbed!" "Do you think so???" "We can laugh about it now we're ok". Those of you who have seen this movie know there are countless scenes throughout the movie that are both funny, warm, absurd, and touching in a way that is relatable by almost any audience at any time. This movie never fails to deliver exactly what it make you feel happier after you watched it like a rememberance of an old friend who never let you down and you could always count on to bring you a smile no matter how bad things were. John Candy and John Hughes, your ability to bring smiles to so many people for so many years will be dearly missed.

- Ermm4 star

Love this movie. But, errm, it's rated R. Not really a 'family' movie ...

- Family movie?4 star

A classic but hardly a family movie. Hello? Steve Martin and the lady at the counter?

- Funny movie, but a "family movie"? Come on, iTunes!4 star

This movie is a classic, but hardly a "family movie". Hello, iTunes, it's rated "R"! Is iTunes spearheading a new media movement that disposes of family values altogether? "OK, kids, go get Daddy so we can all sit down together and watch this "R" rated movie!" Sheesh...

- Planes, Trains and Automobiles5 star

One of the funniest movies EVER made...!!

- Classic5 star

I've seen this movie countless times and it still makes me laugh just as much as the first time, if not more. Funny, heartwarming, and deeper than you expect. It keeps getting better with time.

- Martin & Candy at their best5 star

I've been watching this movie since I was 11 years old and it just gets better with age. When you can still laugh at a film you've seen easily over a hundred times, you know it's a classic.

- Doesn't get much better than this...5 star

Not only is this one of the best comedies of all time…the movie also has great music. Too many great one-liners to name, but I'll name a few anyway. "Have a point!" "Couple more balls and an extra set of fingers" "People train runs outta Ssssssstubbville" "These aren't uhhh…credit cards" "You got busted!" I can go on and on. Just a fantastic movie.

- Great movie with weird ending scene and song !5 star

SinceThe part of Neal and Del went to jail and his wife worried was missing . The ending song most likely for Neal and Del ,not to/from their wife ? Normally the holiday movie ending with they having a dinner together etc. , but this one was stopped at Del's awkward face ?

- "We can laugh about it now cause we're O.K."5 star

For anyone who has done much traveling this movie is way beyond just funny. No matter how many times I see this I still fall down laughing over all of the rental car scenes. So much really funny stuff and yet you find yourself all choked up at the end. Excellent movie!!!

- Wow.5 star

An adventurous, touching, and overall great film full of comedic moments.

- John Candy5 star

Very great and cheerful movie to watch. Also a great holiday movie and family movie.

- Planes, Trains & Automobiles5 star

I watch this movie once a month and every Thanksgiving. It's my favorite comedy of all time and will never, ever get old! When I'm down, this movie cheers me right up!

- A great movie5 star

I saw the banner for this movie on the iTunes home page. Dropped in to leave a quick review. This is one of the best movies ever made. I've loved this movie for a long time. John Candy plays a goofy, likable fat guy. Steve Martin plays an uptight but caring businessman. These two just dominate. They're fantastic. John passed away some time ago now, and he is missed.

- "Those aren't pillows!" xD5 star

So hilarious. This movie will still be funny 100 years from now. An all-time favorite!

- The One and Only John Candy5 star

One of the best comedies of all time and my favorite John Candy movie. I always cry towards the end, especially since I know John Candy is gone. He was THE BEST.

- The best1 star

I think that the movie is great.what makes it awesome is that it has humor in it, duh,it has john candy in it!! :)

- One of the all-time best comedy movies!5 star

The scene with Martin and Candy "spooning" in bed is one of my favorite movie scenes!

- Best Turkey Day Film Ever5 star

Every Thanksgiving evening my wife and I watch this movie and laugh till we cry.

- Awesome!!!!!!!!!!5 star

Best movie ever!


This is my ultimate favorite movie of all time. You'll laugh, cry, and laugh again! Hughes is a freakin' genius, who has done some really outstanding films including my second favorite movie "Breakfast Club." I agree with another review on the rating. Basically a PG rating except for a handful of f bombs, I recommend for children otherwise.

- Planes, Trains and Automobiles5 star

A classic. Never tire of watching this again and again. Terrific acting and hilarious situations that make one laugh aloud.

- Great Movie5 star

I love this movie I watch always before thanksgiving!

- HD MOVIE5 star


- Hilarious Comedy5 star

Candy and Martin have great chemistry and this is easily one of the funniest movies you'll ever see. I'm totally serious, you need to watch it

- I completely agree with leefrog5 star

This is kind of like the movie version of the song "I dont want you back," with alot of language in one scene. Probably should have been a F***ing PG-13

- best movie5 star

this is my all time favorite movie. I've seen it so many times but it never gets old. I like to watch it when I am feeling down and it never fails to make me feel better. you just dont get any funnier than Candy and Martin. "those aren't pillows!"

Yo wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I'm an easy target. Yeah. You're right. I talk too much.... I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you. But I don't like to hurt peoples feelings. You think what you want about me. I'm not changing. I like.... I like me........ My wife likes me........ My customers like me... Because I'm the real article! What'cha see is what you get! Oh.... Rest In Peace John Candy.......

talkin - One of the best!!5 star

One of the best comedies ever!! And from one of the greatest comedians of all time…John Candy.

Winstonsmith - Really funny (and touching)5 star

These guys could have been Hope and Crosby. It's a great movie. For the most part, people really don't want to be seated next to the overly gregarious misfit and then they pray they don't have to talk to them because once they do it's hard to find an out. Now get stuck on a journey with that person through one mis-step after another. Both characters stay human and that's why this movie is so good.

Icandyman - Planes, Trains and Automobiles5 star

You want to laugh, you watch this movie. I never get tired of watching this movie. It's great to laugh and then end up with a few tears. What more can you ask for?

JordinJM - Awesome5 star

Toronto Moto - Only movie ever to make me cry........and it's a comedy!!!5 star

Well written and interesting. If you've never seen it, you won't regret watching it, a funny movie. RIP John.

SheldorMoonpie - 3.5 Stars - Rent It3 star

This is one of the easiest movies to watch where you don't need to be in any mood to see it. There's so much heart in the story and performances that it's hard to resist its charm. Not all of the comedy lands for me, but it's hard to say it won't for you as comedy is so subjective. Pretty much, if you like Steve Martin you'll love this film. It's also one of those movies that is timeless and holds up over the years. A good one for the family on Saturday night.

Persevering Pete - John Candy at his best!5 star

An all time favourite "feel good" movie. Many memorable one liners from John Candy. A movie that never ceases to be funny - no matter how often you watch it!

Claytonion - Planes, trains and automobiles5 star

This is by far the funniest movie i have watched in years!! I nearly wet my pants whilst watching this side splitting comedy. I recommend this to anyone who wants a good belly ache, laugh your socks off with this hilarious comedy about two mens adventurous journey getting from Wichita kansas to chicago city when there flight is grounded due to bad weather !! Great for all ages and highly recommended 11/10 !!

heatseeker424 - Great! But overpriced.5 star

It is a great movie. But why pay $17.99 when it can be found in your local video stores bargain bin for $7.99?

yipee ki yay - A Classic!5 star

Quite simply the funniest film I have ever seen. I never get tired of watching this. Excellent performances from Messrs Martin & Candy and a really emotional ending. Brilliant.

Swift1980 - Classic5 star

Best comedy ever!

Wecklescakes - A fairly good film4 star

This is a rather odd film but none the less quite a good one, i saw it late at night on sky and had nothing better to so i watched it. I wasnt disapointed either! I would recommend this film even after just that one watching, the characters are authentic, quirky and interesting, this is, overall, a very origonal film with some funny moments.

KrayzyDude - A film with a moral.5 star

This film is probably John Candy's best film. Its a shame he is dead as he was a very talented actor. There's not many actors around his size with his natural talent. This film is not only very funny but it has a moral to the story too. You will work it out at the end. It actually kinda changed my life as it made me look at people in a different way and I changed my attitude to people which once I was negative towards. An excellent film well acted throughout. Buy it, its a film you will never forget.. R.I.P John Candy..

CraigD1986 - Great movie but why can't I buy it???5 star

annieebee - Planes, Trains and Automobiles5 star

One of the best holiday movies, ever. Funny, poignant and great lines like "you're going the wrong way!" and "those aren't pillows!". And the best part of all, the late, great John Candy. Classic John Hughes 80's movie that's held up.
