Editorial Reviews

PLAINS, TRAINS, & AUTOMOBILES: Neal Page is an advertising executive who just wants to fly home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his family. But all Neal Page gets is misery. Misery named Del Griffith - a loud mouthed, but nevertheless loveable, salesman who leads Neal on a cross-country, wild goose chase that keeps Neal from tasting his turkey. Steve Martin (Neal) and John Candy (Del) are absolutely wonderful as two guys with a knack for making the worst of a bad situation. If it's painful, funny, or just plain crazy, it happens to Neal and Del in Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Every traveler's nightmare in a comedy-come-true! SUMMER RENTAL: This routine comedy is about a series of misadventures during a family vacation at the beach and stars John Candy (who died of a heart attack while filming in Mexico in 1994) as John Chester and Karen Austin as his long-suffering wife Sandy. When the family leave for what turns out to be a pretty decrepit shack on a public beach, Jack eventually locks horns with the owner of this dubious piece of real estate, and their conflict terminates in a boat race in which Jack and his motley crew are at first glance, and even second, no match for the others in the race. In the meantime, there are plenty of skits with Jack dressed as anything from an ample, unintentional likeness of a geisha to the normal tourist dude in a Hawaiian shirt. His wife and daughter tackle their own problems, related to sex in one way or another, mostly another. FOUL PLAY: "Beware of the Dwarf," whispers the hitchhiker to the beautiful librarian (Goldie Hawn) as he dies midway through a screening of This Gun Is Mine. Suddenly, Hawn is propelled into a world of wild chases, bizarre attempts on her life, and deadly encounters with an assortment of weird underworld characters. Academy Award winner Hawn teams with Chevy Chase (in his first starring motion picture assignment) - and with hilarious results. Chase plays the handsome San Francisco detective who becomes personally and professionally involved with all the off things happening to Hawn. Costarring a pre-Arthur Dudley Moore in one of his most delightful comic turns.

Format: DVD
Three terrific comedies are packaged here from Paramount Studios.
First up: "Planes, Trains & Automobiles", writer-director John Hughes' exercise in incompatability and discomfort as two travelers--uptight ad exec Neal Page (Steve Martin) and obnoxious lovable slob/shower-ring curtain salesman Del Griffith (John Candy)--are thrown together through comic circumstances before Thanksgiving. Page wants nothing more than to get home for some turkey; instead, his travel plans are derailed at every turn, saddling him (and to his irritation, having to rely on him) with Griffith. There are some beautifully played-out comedy scenes, courtesy of Martin & Candy. But the real surprise is how they handle the more tense & frayed dramatic scenes. They learn as they go along to become better people, with Martin's character--repulsed, humiliated and rather snobbish--clashing with Candy's lower-class character, who's just yearning to be understood. A great holiday comedy about human nature and why "we can't all just get along".
"Summer Rental" tries to graduate up-and-coming comedy star Candy into a leading role. It's a pleasant but otherwise small-time, by-the-numbers comedy, obviously inspired by the success of "National Lampoon's Vacation" (which, coincidentally, Candy briefly appears). Playing a stressed-out air traffic controller, he packs up the family for a summertime excursion. Except it's anything but relaxing as Candy must suffer through all kinds of headaches--sunburns, lifeguards flirting with his teenage daughter, his beach house being a "main highway" for vacationers to get to an overcrowded beach, and clashes with a high-class jerk of a landlord, played wonderfully nasty by Richard Crenna.

I enjoy all three movies on this collection, but I especially bought the collection for SUMMER RENTAL and was thrilled that TRAINS, PLANES AND AUTOMOBILES was part of the collection and then remember the Goldie Hawn / Chevy Chase movie FOUL PLAY. What a delight.

Each movie is on it's own DVD which is a plus from the beginning.

All in all, this set is the cure for whatever ails you.

This movie package includes three comedy classics (3 separate DVD's) Planes,Trains,and Automobiles is a race for home on Thanksgiving Day with two of the best comedy actors (Steve Martin & John Candy), with roadblocks along their way.
Summer Rental is fun lighthearted comedy starring John Candy.
Foul Play stars Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn plus a dwarf and a pope. Comedy classic!
