Grab a buddy and hit the road this week with the Bit Players as they sit down and talk about John Hughes’s holiday classic Planes, Trains, and Automobiles starring Steve Martin and John Candy. While the film might stretch at times to be something it’s not, it still remains one of the funniest movies to return to again and again each holiday season simply due to Candy’s and Martin’s amazing on-screen chemistry and timing. The guys lament how much Hughes must have shelled out for such a minimal Matt Lawrence spot, other classic ’80s comedies, and just why Kurt Russell in first class would have made it the perfect film. They also detail their own personal traveling partner pet peeves.
