In honour of the passing of John Hughes, we present this retrospective of Uncle Buck.
Uncle Buck was a warm up run for Home Alone. The styles of the two films were very similar:
- Both films starred Macaulay Culkin and John Candy,
- Both were written by John Hughes,
- Both dealt with abandoned children, and their relationships with adults.
It's run-of-the-mill fare, but the performance of John Candy and the well-written comedic bits make the film worth seeing.
