    Planes, Trains and Automobiles 30th anniversary!

    Can you believe this hilarious 1987 comedy classic from John Hughes is gonna turn 30 this month! who else remembers growing up with it or seeing it when it first came out or on VHS when it hit video rental stores?

    I saw this movie in theaters when i was 6 with my mom, dad and 11 year old big brother and we all loved it and became a family favorite we watched every november since then. One of Martin and Candy (RIP)'s best performances and Hughes's best movie.

    One of the few comedies I actually like, as it's more than just a comedy.

    The only other movies considered "comedies" that come to my mind that I like are Naked Gun, Coming to America, Office Space, and Idiocracy. I think Office Space and Coming to America are my favorite comedies I've ever seen. Watched them both sooo many times.

    Absolutely one of my all-time favorite comedies. The chemistry between John Candy and Steve Martin was amazing. More great lines and scenes then there is time for to listnhere, but the scene at the car rental checkout counter and the final scene with John Candy at Steve Martin's home demonstrates the incredible spectrum -- from comedy to touching the heartstrings -- that was accomplished by these towering talents of comedy.

    I miss John Candy...a lot.
