It's just occurred to me that you're probably wondering what my favorite John Candy picture is. (Shame on me for not sharing this sooner.)

Although I love Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, my absolute favorite Candy movie is Uncle Buck. Classic 1980's John Hughes story, impeccable John Candy performance. If you haven't seen it, you can pick up a copy at Best Buy for seven bucks.

Some of my favorite scenes? The question-and-answer bit between John Candy and a wee, tiny Macaulay Culkin; Candy attempting to take a leak in the wee, tiny urinals at the elementary school.

My two favorite lines in the picture?

"Holy smoke, he's cooking our garbage."

"Get in your mouse and get out of here."
