‘Planes, Trains & Automobiles’ (1987)
If you don’t like silliness, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles is not for you. If this list was a ranking of Silliest Movies, this one might come in first place‚ÄĒand is great for a chilly Saturday afternoon watch. Steve Martin? John Candy? A road trip comedy? Perfection. What’s the movie about, you ask? Steve Martin plays Neal Page, an advertising executive on a trip to New York trying to return to Chicago to be with his family on Thanksgiving. He meets Del Griffith, a traveling salesman, when Griffith steals his cab, and the two of them wind up on the same plane to Chicago, which is diverted to Wichita. They decide then to try to get to Chicago by train, but that doesn’t work out either. What’s the last choice, you wonder?
