Neal Page (Steve Martin) just wants to get home from a meeting in New York in time for Thanksgiving.
However his trip home keeps getting delayed and he is stuck with Del Griffith (John Candy) a shower ring salesman that he can't stand. While everything that could go wrong; does.
The Thanksgiving movie I have to watch every year. It makes you miss John Candy more than any of his other films.

I recently watched Ted 2 and was overjoyed and to see the part that referred to the great car scene with the legend John Candy. Doing the mess around.
