Writer-director John Hughes teamed John Candy and Steve Martin in this 1987 comedy about a stuffy businessman (Martin) trying to get home for Thanksgiving. A stroke of bad luck forces him to suffer through a series of mishaps with a good-natured but overly friendly stranger (Candy). Certain lines and scenes from the movie endure as classics. Dylan Baker ("The Good Wife"), Michael McKean and an uncredited Kevin Bacon and William Windom also appear.
