I love John in several movies
1) Whos Harry Crumb? - 1989
2) Nothing but trouble - 1991
3) Uncle Buck - 1989
4) Home Alone - 1990
Uncle Buck still makes me laugh no matter how many times I watch it and we get a Beau Brummels song to boot! great stuff......love that movie and everything John has been in...
Yup, I just said that! he was golden...
it was funny but the underlying Story was quite sad...a beautiful movie.
on another note; funny Uncle Buck had more morals than his brother and wife...John was excellent in that one.
Buck is definitely a moral, sympathetic character. But Del Griffith is almost an angel in disguise.
perfectly put! I agree...
Just need to get rid of those raccoon montages.
John Candy made Uncle Buck.
Belushi was Farley's hero.
Thanks to this thread, I'm reminded how much I loved the big guy too. Have a lot of DVDs, and Blu rays, but dug a little deeper into my Amazon Prime, and have now added to my watchlist :
Good Idea (1975 film I've never seen)
The David Steinberg Show (1977)
The Tonight Show w/Johnny Carson ( Comic Legends Of The 80s themed )
TOM TUTTLE FROM TACOMA!
The only thing in the whole movie that I found funny.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles and Armed and Dangerous are favorite John Candy films.
I still miss the guy and wonder what he'd be starring in now. He was so skilled at mixing his great comedic talents with pathos, I just adored him and could watch anything he appeared in.
crazy to think hed be 70 this year
Loved him in Stripes! He stole every scene he was in.
I love that scene! Thanks for sharing it.
"Well sir, we were going to this bingo parlor at the YMCA, well one thing led to another, and the instructions got all fouled up..."
"We'd have better luck playing pickup sticks with our butt cheeks than getting out of here tonight"
"Ohhh that feels good. I'm tellin ya, my dogs are barking today."
"You got enough money? You sure? Can I have some then?"
"Bug? What's his last name, spray?"
"Sarge does this mean we're through for the day?"
"I sure hope this is the mess hall. How's it going Eisenhower?"
I still miss him. Gone too soon and too young.
Just watched "Great Outdoors" for the 1st time since... 1989? today.
Some of you love it, and more power to you...
...but that was an awful movie. Not a laugh to be found!
I felt bad for Candy and Aykroyd!
Uncle Buck is my favorite Candy film, but Planes, Trains & Automobiles is really good as well. The "You wanna hurt me?" scene is the latter is so good. Many comedic actors could never pull off a dramatic, emotional moment that well.
His drum work with the Queen Haters was quite underrated, I think
