Planes, Trains and Automobiles was once listed by Roger Ebert as the only movie that his family watches as a custom every Thanksgiving. Fans who also cherish this comedy as a holiday tradition now have a new reason to celebrate, as Paramount’s Blu-ray release of Planes, Trains and Automobiles hits stores November 6, 2012.

John Hughes, who tragically passed away in 2009 at the age of 59, acted as writer, producer and director for Planes, Trains and Automobiles. A filmmaker primarily remembered for his explorations of teenage angst in movies such as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Pretty in Pink, this was Hughes’ first R-rated film. Although this rating can be attributed entirely to a brief but hilarious scene in which an enraged Steve Martin drops the f-bomb 18 times in one minute, the movie does find itself preoccupied with more adult themes than you would find in typical Hughes projects like Weird Science, »
