Best Thanksgiving Ever!- MMU 40

Happy Thanksgiving! We are talking about the classic Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, starring John Candy and Steve Martin. This film has become a staple for families across the country this time of year. It was even featured in this year’s Thanksgiving episode of The Goldbergs. It’s that classic. And let’s face it, there aren’t a lot of other Thanksgiving movies to choose from.

Join Tracy, Val, and myself as we talk about what has made this film endure for so many years. We talk about the heart John Candy brings to the film and his character, we talk about the writing, the story, Steve Martin swearing like Samuel L. Jackson, it’s all here on this episode. And of course, John Hughes, because how could we not? We even talk about how this film might compare to Tommy Boy and why this film might just work a little more than Tommy Boy.

We hope you enjoy our Thanksgiving special, and we hope you have a wonderful holiday and that you have plenty to be thankful for. We are thankful for all of you for listening to our show this year, and hope you all will keep coming back.
