PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES
Hughes | 1987 | US | 93m
“American Gagsters:
Great Comedy Teams”
4:30, 6:50, 9:15 at BAM

“The buried story engine of Planes, Trains and Automobiles is not slowly growing friendship or odd-couple hostility (devices a lesser film might have employed) but empathy… The key early scene takes place in the Wichita motel room [Steve Martin and John Candy] have to share, when Neal [Martin] explodes, telling Del [Candy] his jokes stink, his stories are not interesting and he would rather sit through an insurance seminar than listen to any more of the fat man’s pointless anecdotes. Look at Candy’s face fall… The movies that last, the ones we return to, don’t always have lofty themes or Byzantine complexities. Sometimes they last because they are arrows straight to the heart.”
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
