Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Year: 1987
Director: John Hughes
Writer: John Hughes
Cast: Steve Martin, John Candy, Kevin Bacon
This is one of the few films I could never remember if I'd seen or not, so I got it on video one day and was somewhat disappointed, realising I had seen it, it had made little impact on me, and therefore made me think I hadn't.

A pretty good premise as Martin and Candy play husbands and fathers trying to get home from New York to Chicago in time for Christmas, but the execution was a bit sloppy, a bit flabby, and not sharp enough to produce any real laughs.
