    Another top John Hughes film that found the right mix of comedy and human interest. The two leads were terrific. 7 years 11 months ago

    One of the best comedy films I know. Incredibly funny and you can relate to it so well - who has not met a friendly, yet slightly annoying stranger while travelling? Steve Martin and John Candy did a great job, some scenes are hilarious - and the ending is really sweet. 5 years 11 months ago
