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.

Did You Know?
During Miles' interrogation of Uncle Buck (22:36 to 23:01), John Candy
wrote out the script's dialog and wore it atop his head so Macaulay Culkin
could read the lines more quickly and keep the pace of the scene very fast. (Note that this would be the take of the scene when the camera was set for close-ups of Miles.) See more
When Buck drops Tia off at school, the grab on Tia's door is broken (at around 7 mins) but later in the scene the grab is fixed (at 29:50, but it is a different scene). See more
