Given the presence of both Steve Martin and John Candy, one would expect this John Hughes comedy to be much, much funnier than it is. Certainly it's not for lack of effort on the part of its stars. Martin is an uptight businessman trying to get home from New York for the holidays. But one thing after another gets in his way--most of it having to do with Candy, a boorish but well-meaning boob who takes a liking to him. Together they travel all over the map; no matter how hard Martin tries to shake him, he can't. But Hughes's writing is never as sharp as it should be and this film winds up being only intermittently humorous. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.

I've seen it more than once, and think it is a classic movie of its type.
I think the reason this film is always dear to me is the ending which brings the tears to my eyes. It's such a touching scene. I won't spoil it for those who have never seen this film but it really gives this film poignancy. The comedy however is top notch as you'd expect, and this is a 'buddy' movie that really should be part of your collection.
Trust me - it's a total thrill ride.
I saw myself in the Steve Martin character on a number of occasions.
