Best Thanksgiving Movie~

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

That damn Steve Martin and the Late Great John Candy in this funny, utterly hilarious comedy.   There are so many lines and scenes I can’t figure which is my favorite.  Is it when Neil Page (Martin) goes off on Del Griffith (Candy) in the hotel room when he is finally fed up? 

Is it when they wake up in the bed together and when Del says his other hand is between two pillows and Neil says, “Those are NOT PILLOWS!” 

Or is it when that redneck in Kansas orders his wife to pick up the heavy chest?  Or is it the airport scene when Neil goes F bomb on steroids on the rental car lady?

No wait it has to be when they get pulled over by the cop when the car is half burned – and he ask Del if he thinks, “this vehicle is safe for highway driving?   And Del says, “Yes officer.  I really do.” 

I don’t know there are so many scenes I can’t forget.  This movie is a Thanksgiving tradition for me.  I need to start looking for my ancient VHS copy now so I can watch sometime this weekend.

    Man C your son is a riot. Huh wonder where he gets that from HA.
    The movie is pretty funny.
    Cant say as I could ever associate a movie I liked with any of the major big family and friend holidays, I would probably really just end up hating the movie. Kinda like i stopped listening to Anthony Hamilton after I broke up with the man who brought AH into my life. Since i usually spend these days with just my kids, whom im around everyday, I tend to just dread them as everyone else hypes them up around me. Not having a big family, and only having a couple of close friends, and having no man special in my life to share extra family love with, I just hold my breath and wait for the day to go away.

    OHHHH let me stop Im rainin on everyone elses day and pissin in their cheerios 🙂

    If you have it FAMILY AND FRIEND AND LOVED ONE IT up today.
