20. 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles'
A lot of comedies are built around road trips where nothing seems to go right, and mostly they're lame retreads of Planes, Trains and Automobiles. John Hughes took a break from churning out Brat Pack teen movies to write and direct this movie about a shower-curtain-ring salesmen who travels from Chicago New York with an uptight marketing executive played by Steve Martin. Needless to stay, the trip is a complete disaster and Candy drives Martin completely insane. Hughes re-teamed with John Candy two years later for Uncle Buck.
