Saw a few movies with John Candy recently. Kind of forgot just how good he was.
Plains, Trains & Automobiles is one of my favorites, Uncle Buck is good also.
If I could spend the day with anyone he'd be near the top of the list.
Big fan of the big man!
The Great Outdoors is probably my favorite of his.
I still miss him, jup Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Uncle Buck, Canadian Bacon, great outdoors.
My favorite of his roles has to be Tom Hanks's brother in Splash, especially when he yelled at his brother "I'll never be that happy!"
His work on SCTV makes him one of the all time greats. I was in high school during that time and a buddy and I would do our impressions of Johns characters on SCTV. Comic genius. Loved him in Stripes as well.
he was gone way too soon
Plains, Trains and Automobiles was my favorite.
"I'm Harry, the guy with a snake on his face!"
I love UNCLE BUCK...great re-watch value for me...John was a gem...I love him in everything he was in...from Second City TV.
I went to a Chicago area film production show yesterday, and learned that Second City now has the Harold Ramis Film School, founded by his widow.
I cracked up when I heard his voice in Heavy Metal
Only The Lonely with Maureen O’Hara is my favorite John Candy Film.
Wow! I don't remember that one at all. I'll have to check it out.
My Christmas Eve is never complete without revisiting LaRue disconsolately wandering the snowy main drag of Melonville.
Mine too, I’ll never forget Dell Griffith. There was just so much depth to that character, he deserved a award nomination for that role. I didn’t see the ending coming.
Now the greatest film but I loved him in Summer Rental.
I thought he was great as Don the talking horse in “Hot to Trot”
And remember, May the good lord take a liking to you and blow you up real good!
Includes a great scene at old Comiskey Park.
Don't forget John as the Wally World guard in Vacation
The Illinois State Police detective in The Blues Brothers
I knew him from SCTV and a bunch of silly stuff before I saw this, but this was the first time I thought, "wow, he can really act!"
Tons of great movies featuring his acting since then, my favorites include Uncle Buck, Planes Trains and Automobiles, and Only the Lonely. Him and Maureen O'Hara in that one was a highlight for both of their careers.
