PLANES TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES the now classic film from iconic 80’s director John Hughes is where we’re going this week. Once again, its an “I can’t believe you haven’t seen that!” selection, courtesy of James Hard Sub Savage. Released in (1987) it tells the tale of tight ass businessman Neal Page (Steve Martin), who’s En route to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his family. After being demoted from first-class to coach, he grumpingly settles into his cramped seat where he finds he’s sharing his space with obnoxious shower curtain ring salesman Del Griffith (John Candy) – and to make matters worse, a sudden snowstorm in Chicago soon forces the plane to land in Wichita where Neal is compelled to accept Del’s invitation to share his cheapo-sleazo motel. Driven to distraction by Del’s annoying personal habits, Neal is unable to pry himself away from his OVER BEARINGLY, OVERLY TALKATIVE companion, but as more storms hit, and the path home begins to narrow – Neal soon realizes that he’s in for a ride that will test his patience, his priorities and may just change his idea of who he is. Released in (1987), The film marked a widely noticed change in the repertoire of John Hughes. It was greeted with critical acclaim upon release, (a revelation in that Hughes was considered a teen angst filmmaker). The movie was also hailed for its performances, especially Candy, whos lack of an Oscar nomination for the role is still regarded as one of the great snubs. The film was also a financial success, grossing over $49,500,000 domestically on a production budget of almost $30,000,000.
