John Candy's 2nd funniest movie!!
2 June 2002 | by (Greenville, NY) – See all my reviews



I saw this movie for the first time last month, and im still laughing about it!! This movie has some of the funniest parts ever in it. This movie isnt as funny as Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, but it's pretty darn close!! If you liked Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, you should definately check this one out.
