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 Uncle Buck is drinking on the couch, at first, in a frontal shot (at around 1h 08 mins), the label on his beer bottle is to his right. In the next cut, from behind him, the label is on his left side (01:08:36). Then, when viewed again from the front, the label is again on his right side (01:08:42). See more »
Get your bag off the table, people eat there.
People eat off of plates.
Don't give me any crap, Maizy.

In January 2021, Hats Off Entertainment presented a previously unseen deleted scene on its Youtube channel. The ten-minute scene shows Buck playing various games in the Russell household with his gambling buddies and a pizza delivery man. After playing charades, they play a game of musical chairs for money. Buck loses the game, but refuses to pay out to the other players and is chased. See more »

sweet as Candy
I agree with chapwithwings regarding John Candy vs Chris Farley & John Belushi. John Candy always had a sweetness about him that was obvious in any movie I ever saw him in & even though his comedy was sometimes a little over the top he was still more consistently funny than either Farley or Belushi. He could be laugh out loud funny but so vulnerable that you couldn't help but love him even though he was usually a bit of loser. I just saw Uncle Buck again today. It is one of my favourites along with Planes, Trains & Automobiles. I forgot how impossibly cute Macaulay Culkin & Gaby Hoffman were and Jean Louisa Kelly was totally believable as the angry young teen. I just really love a feel good movie & this is one.
