John Hughes' Uncle Buck is a comedy that isn't as recognized as much as his acclaimed films Home Alone, Pretty In Pink, Weird Science, Breakfast Club, 16 Candles , but this is just as funny and heartwarming as the others. Courtesy mainly of the lead John Candy as Buck Russell. He brings to the screen sarcastic humor that works best for him. Enjoyable throughout, even if sometimes the mushy stuff is unbearable. Favorite line "He, he, he, you ever hear of a ritual killing? hehehe". A-
John Candy is BRILLIANT as Uncle Buck. (by famousgir1)
Uncle Buck is a brilliant and fun comedy for everyone. John Candy plays Uncle Buck, a guy who has to look after his brothers children for a while, as his brother and sister-in-law have to go away. The kids include a rebellious teen, Tia, and two sweet young kids, Maisy and Miles. As well as the great Joh Candy starring here, the just as great Gaby Hoffmann and Macaulay Culkin also star in this movie. I give Uncle Buck a 10/10.
A sensitive, often touching film that was made for John Candy's talents. (by gitrich)
Uncle Buck is a lovable character who, though irresponsible at times, loves his brother's children like his own. He winds up trying to deal with more than he bargained for when he must keep track of his teenage niece who tests the limits while her parents are not at home. It is funny and touching, something Candy does very well. This is a movie worth renting and one that teens and up can really enjoy.
JOHN CANDY'S FINEST HOUR (by dogcow)
Simply Candy's best film, second only to Planes, Trains & Automobiles. Only hughes knew what to do with Candy. He is completely charming as a total hapless slob who invades his newphew and neices life. Every scene in this film is memorable! Its sad such a comic genius is no longer with us, but he will always be rememered. If you see only one John Candy movie make it UNCLE BUCK.
can't go wrong (by miss-freudstein)
**POSSIBLE SPOILERS**'Uncle Buck' is a comedy/drama movie starring John Candy as Buck Russell, Jean Louisa Kelly, Macaulay Culkin and Gaby Hoffmann. When Cindy's father has a heart attack, someone is needed to watch the kids.Buck is phoned as a last resort, with the exception of un-contacted neighbour Marcie and must arrive at their home as soon as possible. Cindy and Bob must go to stay with him in Indianapolis, while Buck Bob's brother stays with the children. Cindy doesn't trust Buck. She feels extremely uneasy and nervous about leaving the kids with him. He is a 40 <more>
year old, who is not married, has no children, gambles and hates to work. He is a light hearted character, and doesn't like to take things seriously. Things start off on the wrong foot. Miles and Maisy Culkin and Hoffmann don't remember him, and he doesn't even remember their names. Tia instantly clashes with him, as she does with her mother. Tia is a sarcastic, angry rebellious fifteen year old girl. She keeps her life to herself, but not her opinions. Buck warns her about the intentions of her boyfriend Bug Jay Underwood , whom he can see straight through after meeting him.We can't help but feel sorry for Buck. He grows to love the kids, yet Tia gives him an incredibly hard time. He is hated by Cindy. She even folded him off of her and Bob's wedding photo Chanice Buck's girlfriend catches Buck with flirtatious Marcie, and gets the wrong idea of what is going on, thanks to Tia, who is trying to make things miserable for Buck.However, after Tia discovers Buck was right about Bug, we see a special relationship develop between uncle and niece. When Bob and Cindy return home, there is a heart-warming moment between mother and daughter. Uncle Buck's comedy comes fast and frequently. Buck has the greatest comedic role. My personal favourite Buck moments are when he talks to bug about the hatchet in the trunk, chat with Tia about shaving heads, and drill moments. The accompanying sound effects are so well suited here. They have a sci-fi effect, and make Buck seem rather scary to the character opposite, and funny to the viewers. Also note the way that Buck carries out household jobs, such as the washing, drying and ironing. One of the greatest lines in the movie is the 'tune-up' 'ritual killing' line if you've seen the movie, you'll know! , beaten by the question and answers sequence between Miles and Buck. Brilliant! Miles also comes across as a comedic character. He also seems quite smart and mature for his age. This film is great to watch time and time again. It never loses its comedy value. If you have some time to spare, I suggest filling it with Uncle Buck. You won't be disappointed! My rating of Uncle Buck - 9/10.
These types of movies usually cast weak kids as characters. Culkin was amazing, end of story. Yet usually the little sister or brother are dudes. You must get the right kids and "B" actors like Amy Madigan helped she graduated from Marquette University with a degree in philosophy as the hard driving girlfriend. When you fill the story with memorable characters think Seinfeld, nobody did it better the depth and satisfaction remains after the movie. These movies are lost today with "animation" CGI nonsense thank you Toy Story and so many take cultural issues that lose <more>
merit even after three years. Oh, another key is to stay character driven like The Andy Griffith Show. NO current nuances...make it plausible 20 years later!
I gave this an '8', which is one or two more points than it really should get, but the simple fact is - I enjoy watching it over and over. John Candy shines as Uncle Buck. He brings the character alive and you can't help but wish you had a crazy guy like that as an uncle.Well, maybe a distant uncle, but still he's warm, lovable and helpless in so many ways. As one would expect, the story is simple, the scenes mostly predictable except maybe the ax-murder scene? and of course there's a happy ending.The little kids, Maisy and Miles, played by Gaby Hoffman and a slightly <more>
younger Macaulay Culkin, are simply adorable! The teenage daughter Jean Louisa Kelly perfectly portrays a teenage girl in the throws of that classic imbalance between childhood and adulthood.Anyway - no one dies. No one loses an eye or an arm. No houses burn down. There are no explosions, no fighter jet scenes, no wild car chases - just plain old silly fun.Go watch it. This is not a request! Uncle Buck says watch it!
Really, this is funny from start to finish, and pretty smart too. A great comedy, this is also a fine movie about growing up - for every character in the film. Obviously, the most important is Uncle Buck himself, a man- child long overdue for some responsibility. But his nieces, nephew, sister-in-law, and even "Bug" "What is his last name? Spray?" are in for some character development. Of course, Candy and his half-hang-dog, half- know-it-all, and half know-nothing yes, that's too many halves together carry the film, but the others hit their marks as well -- kids, <more>
teens, and adults as well. There are some classic moments - I think about Buck's friend down at the crime lab who can analyze a toothbrush to make sure the kids brushed their teeth every time my kids claim they've brushed their teeth when I know they didn't spend enough time in there. But mostly this is a comedy with an actual plot, and nicely done.
The late, great John Candy always came across as this big, lovable rogue of man who had a heart of gold so 'Uncle Buck' really plays on these attributes to bring together a wonderful comedy that will leave you alternating between laughter and feeling all fuzzy! John Candy stars in the title role of Uncle Buck, the slob bachelor uncle who is grudgingly called upon to babysit his sensible brother's three children while the parents have to go out of town visiting a sick relative. Buck copes admirably with the adorable eight-year-old Miles and six-year-old Maisy. However, his work is <more>
cut out when it comes to dealing with the eldest of the children, fifteen-year-old Cindy, who is a sullen, cynical teenager who has no time for her uncle's light-hearted, down-trodden ways. It doesn't take long for the battle of wills between slob and teen to thunder through the house.Watching the film, it certainly seems that Candy was born for such a role. He really brings the character to life, portraying Buck's slovenly side as well as what makes him such a genuinely nice, decent guy who you would love to have as an uncle. Jean Louisa Kelly, as Cindy, nicely compliments him by depicting her initial disgust that she is related to such a man but later discovers they do have a few things in common such as a sadistic side! 'Uncle Buck' walks a nice balance between being a hilarious comedy, as we see Buck's antics in dealing with the alien territory of family life, and being a warming family film that doesn't delve into being overly-sentimental. Highly recommended even if it is just to see how Buck curtly deals with Cindy's sleazy boyfriend Bug!
