It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 16 years since John Candy passed away. He’s been in so many comedies I love. He’s part of an exclusive list of people that can make you laugh so easily you feel like they’re your best friend.
Remember Barf? There’s no way you’ve made it this far into the post and not smiled yet.
Spaceballs definitely deserves to be on this list someday. However, today I want to discuss another absolute classic. Uncle Buck.
Uncle Buck is a perfect Rainy Sunday flick. Let me explain why… Have you ever put a lot of effort into a sandwich? I mean a giant record breaking sandwich? Have you ever gathered the necessary amounts of cheese, crackers, pickles and baby carrots to go with it? How about an enormous glass of milk to accompany the meal? To me that’s a perfect lunch. (I love sandwiches.) The only thing better than a perfect lunch is a great movie to go with it. I recommend Uncle Buck.
“Holy smokes! He’s cooking our garbage…”
I categorize Uncle Buck as easy watching. Relaxing afternoons are perfect for a good meal, a great movie and an amazing power nap once it’s over. We’ve all been there. You get on your couch with a blanket and before you know it, 2 hours have gone by and you wake up feeling fantastic. (I would really love to take a nap right now. I consider power napping a hobby)
Uncle Buck also represents one of the hardest laughing fits I’ve ever had with 2 of my close friends. The three of us had a house in college and we used to watch movies like Uncle Buck all the time while recovering from viscious hangovers. The following clip made us laugh non-stop for hours. Since then we all do ‘the laugh’ whenever we think about Uncle Buck. (hee hee hee)
Uncle Buck. Another Classic.
