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 Buck takes the cat back out of the house, as he walks through the doorway you can see a person standing behind the door waiting to close it (at 01:00:33 seen through the slit between the door and the frame at the hinges). This person is a lot taller than a six year old. The form is also seen through the slit (and moves) from 01:00:17 to 01:00:27 when Buck first brings the cat into the house. The scene from 01:00:17 to 01:00:48 is shot in a single take. The intent of the film is that the children close the door because the porch light is shut off at 01:00:39 and the children giggle about it, but since children have restricted work hours and this scene does not require them to be on-camera, it would make sense that it was shot when no children were on the set.

Don't give me any crap, Maizy.

A hilarious, feel-good movie
I was BORN the year this film came out, but I've managed to see it on TV a few times and am proud to say I love it. Uncle Buck is one of my all time favorite movies. John Candy's jokes are just hilarious. He plays the part perfectly - if he wasn't cast as Uncle Buck, it wouldn't be half the movie it is. There are so many funny parts in this movie, even if you're in a horrible mood, you cannot help but laugh at least once. The music really enhances the movie, also. The teenager got on my nerves, but I suppose that's what she was supposed to do. Macaulay Culkin is charming and cute and has a few good scenes. Uncle Buck grabs onto your imagination and you cannot help but love it. If you haven't seen it, go out and rent it. You won't be sorry.
