Planes, Trains, & Automobiles: The only Thanksgiving movie? | 50% Facts

We called our own 20-somethings, Sebastian and Avi, in to help us look at the most iconic Thanksgiving movie ever. Steve Martin and John Candy starred 1987’s Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. The film was written and directed by John Hughes, the writer/producer/director responsible for teen films like The Breakfast Club, and slapstick comedy juggernauts like Home Alone, and National Lampoon’s Vacation.

Does this slapstick holiday classic hold up? Is it still funny to later generations? What makes it funny and why does comedy seem to run in cycles. Did anyone else think there might be a dark, true crime twist at the end? Avi did.

You can find Sebastian on Instagram @sebastian_brambila and Avi on Instagram @avi.lieu.
