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
When Miles unpacks the lunch that Uncle Buck has made for him and asks the boy to his right "Would you like to talk about a possible lunch trade?" (27:51 to 28:10), the scene cuts to an overhead shot (28:11 to 28:12) of the three boys at his table propelling their chairs backwards across the room. The overhead cut has numerous continuity errors. At 28:11, (1) Miles is still unpacking his lunch so his hand is back in the lunch bag and he is missing the canned sardines and two plastic bags, (2) the boy to Miles' right is wearing a solid purple shirt rather than a blue shirt with black stripes, and (3) the sandwich in the right hand of the boy to Miles' right has been replaced with a bag of Fritos.

Get your bag off the table, people eat there.
People eat off of plates.
Don't give me any crap, Maizy.

When the movie finishes, John Candy's voice yells "Wake up!", followed by the sound of an air horn and John laughing. See more »
Uncle Buck is a brilliant and fun comedy for everyone. John Candy plays Uncle Buck, a guy who has to look after his brothers children for a while, as his brother and sister-in-law have to go away. The kids include a rebellious teen, Tia, and two sweet young kids, Maisy and Miles. As well as the great Joh Candy starring here, the just as great Gaby Hoffmann and Macaulay Culkin also star in this movie. I give Uncle Buck a 10/10.
