Well, it's hard to get invested in the lovely, young Jean Louisa Kelly's teenaged Tia Russell character, who is ultimately redeemed, but just so startlingly unlikable throughout the body of the film that not even the then-newcoming Kelly's decency can compensate as much as it ought to, yet outside of that role, most everyone fulfills his or her role pretty sharply, but not like leading man John Candy, whose classic charm is overwhelming, and whose down-to-earth presence proves to be endearing in its crafting an endearing lead who may very well be more memorable than the film itself.

It's not perfect, but it's one of those movies that will, most likely, keep being good no matter how many times you watch it. An irresponsible slob becomes the legal guardian of his nieces and nephew, when his brother and sister-in-law are killed in a car crash. Directed by John Hughes. So yeah, this is family dysfunction for the whole family to enjoy, even though it's not especially memorable, what with its thin story. What did I think of the movie? I'd certainly recommend this if you haven't yet seen it. It sounds silly writing it out, but it is a funny scene. Tia's anger is as a result of the fact that they moved from Indianapolis to Chicago (at least I believe they do), but there's no real reason outside of that.

Candy could have carried the flawed, but loving uncle role a little over the top, but instead he carries the film by approaching such a conventional role in a refreshing and likable fashion that sells material as best Candy can. shows the last 5 years. | Rating: C+ There are plenty of aspects to this film that are blanding, but really, what blands things up about as much as anything is the final product's lack of originality, because as a late '80s/early '90s style family comedy, if not dramedy, it's nearly nothing new, and nothing less than hopelessly predictable. Stage 16, Universal Studios - 100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City, California, USA. | Rating: A Believability is uneven, tone is uneven, and even subtlety is uneven, and as if that's not enough, there's also a certain unevenness to pacing, which is generally tight enough to sustain entertainment value on the whole, until broken by dry and draggy spells in Hughes' storytelling which, in comparison with the smoother spots in pacing, are nearly dull, and decidedly detrimental to a sense of momentum.

Shoot, I don't think anyone or anything ran out of material faster than this film's spin-off TV series, although, in all fairness, I didn't actually watch any of that, like everyone else. The latter relies almost entire on 'fatty fall down' slapstick comedy or, generally, just making fun of the fact that he's fat (watch Grown Ups 2 for this). Charming and funny, Uncle Buck is a beloved John Hughes classic. The late John Candy, in what may be his most celebrated role, stars as the eponymous Buck. Coming Soon. That's not the problem though, the problem comes in the fact of Candy's comedic style versus James' style. Maybe later? Anyway, on to this flick.

So, realistically speaking, while he was part of some memorable films, his 'success' as a box office draw wasn't even that long, since the 90s up until his death weren't great for the guy. | Rating: 6/10 Like many of Hughes' efforts, the film tries pretty hard to keep relatively grounded for a fluff piece, and that makes it harder to ignore lapses in believability, not just in its sentimentality, but in certain comedic set pieces that go too far over the top to gel with more grounded comedic moments. | Rating: 4/5.

The closest thing we have to John Candy in this generation is Melissa McCarthy, though McCarthy isn't afraid to do raunchier stuff where she's kind of a dick to people. Well, actually, I do believe I saw it when I was younger, like maybe when was from the ages of 8-13, but it's been so long by this point (I'm 29), that it's almost like I'm watching it for the first time. Buck has no time winning over the youngest children of the house, Miles and Maizy, he has a harder time with Tia, the typical 80s angsty teen.

It's done so Uncle Buck's kindness and wise words can turn Tia into a loving daughter once again. But, it's Candy's magnetism and charisma that makes the film work and gives it its heart.
