This is my very favorite movie of all time. Every line is very funny. I can watch it over & over, and never stop laughing The only thing I don't like is the swear words.

One of the most genuinely funny movies ever! Hilarious dialogue from beginning to end, delivered by two legendary comic talents Steve Matin and John Candy. No matter how many times you see it, this film never gets old. There are also some great extras like footlage from a press conference Steve Martin, John Candy and John Hughes did when the film was released.

This is a timeless comedy classic. It gets better every time I see it. Funny throughout and the ending always reminds you that not everyone is fortunate enough to be with friends and family during the holidays. I think this is John Candy's best movie. This movie really makes you miss not having him around anymore.

This movie is a classic in my family's estimation. Very funny with lines well delivered and fitting to the situation. Even the music is funny. I think most people can relate to it because most have had the same types of travel problems and encounters with annoying people. Everything simply fits together perfectly in this classic. We watched it every year before the holidays and laugh out loud every time.

A beautiful pairing of knowledgeable comedy actors at their light-hearted best. One thing I am struck by is the lack of profanity, which would be a welcome for many families.

I have deemed this film a Thanksgiving Tradition. We can all relate to at least one of the mishaps these two characters meet with. The hotel bed scene was and will remain one of the best comedy scenes of all time. Definitely one of John Candy's most memorable performances. Proof of why he is missed so much.

We all have had nightmarish travel experiences. I can relate completely to this movie: the trip that seemingly will never end, and the feeling that things can only get worse!! Steve Martin and John Candy make this movie fun, but more importantly, believable!!! Bob from Marion, Ohio

i've heard a lot about this "masterpiece." its the story of two different people who travel across country to get to chicago for thanksgiving and along the way get into some mishaps and slowly grow a bond and friendship. i thought it was good and some of the scenes were funny especially the car rental scene that was a hoot. the music fit perfectly since it came out like in the 80s or something and of course the director known mostly for the teen films but did a good job with this adult one too. martin and candy make a good team and have good chemistry.

Although some profanity is unnecessary this flick has been treasured in my family since it's making in 1987. This is the ''Seinfeld'' of the big screen bringing real life travelling troubles home.

You will laugh til you cry and cry til you laugh. By far and away Candy and Martin's best comedic venture. Sure, there's some rough language at times, particularly the car rental scene, but that's what makes it so funny. Edie McClurg (She was a John Hughes favorite. You'll recognize her as Ed Rooney's assistant from Ferris Bueller, another Hughes classic)is hilarious for the two minutes she is on screen as the rental car agent. I have seen the edited car rental seen on broadcast TV and frankly, it's nowhere near as funny without the "F-Bombs". John Hughes was a genius at making us laugh and cry at relatable, every day situations. And John Candy was everyman's comic actor. This role was meant for him and in my mind is his comic legacy. Other reviewers are right. When you watch him in this, and the final scence freezes with him smiling, you do realize how much he is missed.

This by far is the funniest movie that I have seen Steve Martin in and that goes for John Candy too. What a match. They really played well off of each other.

I need to watch this at least three times a year -- from Candy's classic mimic of Ray Charles doing 'The Mess Around' to Steve Martin's rent-a-car rant -- this is great cinema. The end is touching. The physical comedy is charming. It's Candy's best.
