Writer-director John Hughes made his mark on ‘80s cinema with the National Lampoon’s Vacation films and his Brat Pack teen comedies. By the late ‘80s, he’d transitioned to writing more “grown-up” comedies, starting with 1987’s Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Continuing his partnership with actor John Candy in The Great Outdoors, which Hughes wrote, and then the next film he directed, released in 1989. Starring Candy as a bachelor uncle called upon to care for his nieces and nephew in the Chicago suburbs, this family comedy brought Hughes and Candy together with young actor Macaulay Culkin, who went on to star in another Hughes/Candy project: Home Alone. But this time, the kids aren’t left home alone… Uncle Buck’s here, and he’s making pancakes with a shovel. Dig in!
