We have a wide variety of films appropriate for watching around Halloween, and some may argue that there are almost too many Christmas movies to choose from, but you never hear much about any films related to the major holiday in between: Thanksgiving. However, if there is one film that should be included in your family’s annual traditions this November, it has to be 1987’s Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.
The hilarious classic, written and directed by John Hughes, stars Steve Martin as Chicago advertising executive Neal Page, who is forced to share his journey home from New York for a Thanksgiving feast with his family with a boisterous, talkative shower curtain ring salesman named Del Griffith, played by the late, great John Candy.
There’s no better time to revisit the brilliant lunacy of this road movie than the fourth Thursday of November, but for those who don’t already own it on DVD or Blu-ray, where can you watch Planes, Trains, and Automobiles right now? This is where we step in.
