It’s two days before Thanksgiving and many of us are
finalizing plans to travel home to feast on bird and visit with family. I
wish you well on your travels and hope you have better luck than Neal
It’s two days before Thanksgiving and ad exec Neal Page (Steve Martin) need only catch his 6pm flight to Chicago to return home to his loving family. His indecisive boss, a fleet-footed businessman (Kevin Bacon), and a cab thief signal the beginning of his troubles. While waiting on his delayed flight, he meets Del Griffith (John Candy), a shower curtain ring salesman and the thief of his rush hour cab. The irritable, hostile Neal couldn’t be more opposite to the easy-going, upbeat Del, but when their Chicago-bound flight is diverted to Wichita, Neal has little choice but to team up with this jovial tradesman if he has any hope of making it home for the holidays.
