As an idle, good-natured bachelor, Uncle Buck is the last person you would think of to watch the kids. However, during a family crisis, he is suddenly left in charge of his nephew and nieces. 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. His carefree style does not impress everyone though - especially his rebellious teenage niece, Tia, and his impatient girlfriend, Chanice. With a little bit of luck and a lot of love, Uncle Buck manages to surprise everyone in this heartwarming family comedy. Written by
He's crude. He's crass. He's family.

The movie was originally intended to be shot in the St. Louis area rather than John Hughes
's traditional Chicago. Filming was about to begin when the decision was made to move the shoot to Chicago (the reason being that the film was set in winter and the winter of 1988 was unseasonably warm in St. Louis, leading to the change). See more
When Uncle Buck is drinking on the couch, at first, in a frontal shot (at around 1h 08 mins), the label on his beer bottle is to his right. In the next cut, from behind him, the label is on his left side (01:08:36). Then, when viewed again from the front, the label is again on his right side (01:08:42). See more
