    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.

    John Candy made Uncle Buck.
  12. 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 )

    The only thing in the whole movie that I found funny.
  15. 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.

    "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! :help:

    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
