All that Neal Page wants to do is to get home for Thanksgiving. His flight has been cancelled due to bad weather, so he decides on other means of transport. As well as bad luck, Neal is blessed with the presence of Del Griffith, shower curtain ring salesman and all-around blabbermouth who is never short of advice, conversation, bad jokes, or company. And when he decides that he is going the same direction as Neal....Written by

The green convertible is a 1986 Chrysler LeBaron Town and Country, with a 2.2 liter turbo engine. It was modified for the film, including the following Dodge 600 parts: taillights, steering wheel, and owner's manual (that can be seen in the glove compartment when Neil puts his wallet in there). The trunk was off of an older K-car convertible: no third brake light, and the luggage rack that was not offered in 1986 (but was, on older models). See more »
Right after Del backs into the motel room, you can see a turn signal showing a left turn on their car, yet in the next scene we see Del using his hand for a turn signal. See more »

There are no opening credits after the title, which scrolls across the screen like a plane, train, and automobile. See more »
Although it's not included in the theatrical or the network cuts, a shot of Del Griffith brushing his teeth was included on ads for the network version. See more »
Oh he's drunk, how would he know where we're going?
Steve Marin and John Candy are hilarious together in this comedy about a guy trying to get home to his family for thanksgiving with a guy who is really annoying. Everything that could go wrong to these guys goes wrong. Steve Martin plays a guy who is a businessman who is very uptight and John Candy plays a guy that means well but talks a lot and can be very annoying. Together they have the worst luck they could possibly have. During their venture they learn a lot from each other and become really good friends. This movie has a good storyline and will keep you laughing through most of the movie. I think anyone who has a sense of humor can appreciate this movie.
