Uncle Buck -- John Candy stars in this John Hughes comedy as an idle, good-natured bachelor who's left in charge of his nephew and nieces during a family crisis.  Unaccustomed to suburban life, fun-loving Uncle Buck soon charms his younger relatives Miles and Maizy with his hefty cooking and his new way of doing the laundry. But his carefree style doesn't impress everyone, including Tia (Jean Kelly), his rebellious teenage niece, and Chanice (Amy Madigan), his impatient girlfriend.  Uncle Buck is the last person you'd think of to watch the kids. But with a little luck and a lot of love, he manages to surprise everyone in this heartwarming family comedy.
Uncle Buck -- Bachelor and all round slob, Buck, babysits his brother's rebellious teenage daughter and her cute younger brother and sister.

Quotes:
From Uncle Buck (1989)
Tia: Do have any idea how embarrassing this is? You driving me up to my school where everyone can see you? I can't believe I'm related to you.
Buck: You just get that big stick out of your keester young lady, and we'll get along just fine.
Tia: Can I ask you a personal question?
Buck: Sure.
Tia: Did you ever have anyone embarrass you like this?
[a very long pause as Buck glances up, then down, and side to side trying to remember and contemplating Tia's question until he makes eye contact with her again]
Buck: No.
