Trailer contains several scenes that aren't in the final cut of the film, including one of Buck shaving, one where Buck talks to Mrs. Russell about how he'll handle the kids, the lunch bag in the school locker, and Buck talking to Marcie in a supermarket. See more »
Simply Candy's best film, second only to Planes, Trains & Automobiles. Only hughes knew what to do with Candy. He is completely charming as a total hapless slob who invades his newphew and neices life. Every scene in this film is memorable! Its sad such a comic genius is no longer with us, but he will always be rememered. If you see only one John Candy movie make it UNCLE BUCK.
