He's crude. He's crass. He's family.
Uncle Buck Synopsis

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.

Sort of a prequel to Home Alone (with some identical scenes), the whole of this movie rests on the shoulders of Candy, and he knocks it out of the park. It's one of John Hughes' later films which has all of his marks all over it, yet because it is geared at a more primarily family audience, the result isn't as sharp. Which is why Candy raises it to something more, with everyone else just watching him have a ball. The relationships between him and Jean Louisa Kelly and Amy Madigan leave the rest of the family in the shade, which is a nice twist and I wonder if that was initially how it was supposed to play out.

  • Yes! John Candy's best film. He holds the whole thing together (with a 'lil help from Kevin McAllister)
