With (Canadian) Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought I'd share my favourite Thanksgiving movie: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles (1987). I doubt there are many people who haven't seen this movie, but it deserves a mention nonetheless. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles , starring Steve Martin and John Candy, follows Neal Page (Martin) as he attempts to get home in time for Thanksgiving from a business trip. After a snow storm cancels his flight home, Page's life intertwines with that of a talkative, bumbling shower curtain ring salesman, played by Candy. The two are both heading to Chicago and decide to travel together, unaware of the rocky road that lays ahead.
