Trains, planes, and automobiles has to be the greatest movie ever. Since it stars John Candy, one knows its going to be hilarious. My favorite scene is when the car goes between the two tractor trailers and neil turns into satan lol. what does everyone else think? b/c this movie is definately a classic

"Those aren't pillows!"

This movie definetly a comedy classic. Not only is it hillarious but I also found it to be deeply moving. I had great sympathy for John Candy's character; I cried at the end when you find out.. SPOILER

I have to agree with that, although without the crying.

One of my favorite scene was Steve Martin washing his face in the basin with Candy's socks.

Actually, it was his underwear. I like it when Steve Martin cusses out that lady at the airport about his rental car.

No. The best part is when Steve and John are talking to that country bumpkin guy.

"Train don't run outta Witchita. 'Lessn you a hog, or a cattle. People train run outta *snorts* Stubbville."

God that is so f'n funny. Oh god, I can't stop laughin. Whoo. That's nice. Thanks to all for making me think of that. I haven't had a laugh like that in ages.

Classic Comedy for sure.

I like the part when his hired car was stolen and he was talking to that secretary.

Great to see some fans of the film! It is my 5th Favourite film. Steve Martin is hilarious and it was my first time seeing John Candy. I saw this in 1996 but it was on last night on Sky 1 was it? Great movie.

This film is a classic. Quite humorous indeed. Good to see on television around Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Absolute classic, I love John Candy especially in this movie. If any one hasn't seen it's well worth watching. Those aren't pillows!!

I never was much of a fan of Steve Martin, to be quite honest. It's been hard to make the time to sit down and watch this. I can't tell you how many times I've seen the clip of the car exploding and he and John Candy's character arguing about his wallet, from things such as Scene-It or catching it on TV. I just don't find it (or Steve Martin) very funny. I know I'm basing this post off of a single scene, but I don't know. I'm going to try to maybe watch this tonight. If I get through it, great. If not....sorry The Living Angelus.

I prefer the road movie antics of Midnight Run, if they're comparable on that level. Not because anyone can outdo the nuisance John Candy role (they can't) but because DeNiro is a much better 'straight man' and bounty hunter chases are more fun.

But whatever. Plenty of good stuff here. Sometimes chuckle when remembering anything in the hotel, or the one scene where they argue about playing with balls.

I kinda agree with you about Steve Martin, I've never found him that funny either, but John Candy is the star attraction here.

John Candy's speech is even more painful to watch years after his death than when he was alive. Gets me every time.
