Planes, Trains and Automobiles is a classic comedy with an enormous heart. Pitch perfect casting, witty scripting, a full-title array of superb comedic performances from everyone involved, and a parade of deliciously funny sequences, this film is a treasure. The pains of travel, during the busy season, or really any time of the year where weather can be problematic (thunderstorms on the east coast have caused quite the kerfuffle for many of us), are familiar to us all, and this film milks that pain for knowing laughs.
Paramount still hasn’t delivered a home video release worthy of the film, and so the wait continues.

One thing I meant add in my review was how quotable this film can be. Some lines that always make me chuckle:

"Six bucks and my right nut says we're not landing in Chicago"
