Stupid pointless film. Not worthy of more than two sentences of review.

This is a great John Candy flick. I used to watch this all the time when I was younger, and I always love it when I get a chance to randomly catch it on tv.

This is definitely John Candy's best. And, it's one of my family's favorite movies that we watch together. Oh, and for all you Macaulay Culkin fans out there: this blows Home Alone out of the water!

A Pleasure To Enjoy

When I was learning the ways of the world, I often wondered if my family was a typical family. Then comes the first time you meet with the other half of the family that you often heard about but weren't sure that they existed. This is such a tale. UB is the typical underachiever with a heart of gold that kids love but adults find worrisome. Uncle Buck isn't searching for anything in life and is happy to just enjoy life and spread his simple likes with friends and his goal oriented girlfriend. When his girlfriend's plans for him to get a job he's not excited about are interrupted by his desperate brother's need for someone to watch his kids while he goes to a funeral with his wife, this is buck's excuse to delay the job decision.

A Must See Comedy

This is one of the all time classic comedy's. John Candy plays the perfect lovable loser who has to take care of his two nieces and nephew when his brother and his wife have to leave unexpectedly. When he first enters the house he has no clue how to take care of children or act like an adult but thought the course of the movie the kids learn some lessons from him and he learns some lessons from them with plenty of laughs along the way. The performance of a young Macaulay Culkin really steals the show for me. His endless questioning of his uncle buck when he first arrives to the look on his face when he finds Buck making him giant pancakes with a snow shovel for a spatula for his birthday. If some how you have nor seen this movie you need rent is ASAP.
