All that Neal Page (played by Steve Martin) wants to do is to get home for Thanksgiving. His flight has been cancelled due to bad weather, so he decides on other means of transport.
As well as bad luck, Neal is blessed with the presence of Del Griffith (played by John Candy), who is a shower curtain ring salesman and all-around blabbermouth, never short of advice, conversation, bad jokes, or company.
And when he decides that he is going the same direction as Neal, that’s when the fun starts.
As the title suggests, to get home they try via three main modes of trasnport with hilarious results. Another famous actor is in this movie, being Kevin Bacon.
Similar to Ferris Bueller, this is an iconic movie of the 80s, as is the promo picture for the movie shown below:
