  1. Chihao Tsang's rating of the film Uncle Buck

    Remember loving this as a kid, not the same as an adult. Feels very 80s

  2. Palmat's rating of the film Uncle Buck

    Solid dramedy but kinda slight nonetheless. Candy is on fine form and the kid actors are also good. However, the writing is uneven and neither the drama or the comedy hits home as often as they should.

  3. traag-1's rating of the film Uncle Buck

    At one point during childhood my VHS copy was nearly destroyed from viewing. I could recite the entire movie. Classic.

    John Candy at his most charming.

  12. The Knol's rating of the film Uncle Buck

    Easily a role model for parenting. John Candy portrays me in this movie about the "fun" Uncle who may be a bit quirky. Having a big heart,a fun loving attitude and aversion to work he brings this stunning performance to screen with clarity and realism. Great for the whole family.

  15. PolarisDiB's rating of the film Uncle Buck

    General concept works out because John Candy's idiosyncratic style + a hefty helping of straight-faced dry humor. Translation: fat man threatening skinny New Wave adolescent with a variety of painful ends. --PolarisDiB

  18. Kristy's rating of the film Uncle Buck

    This was absolutely one of my favorite movies growing up...and it still holds up. John Candy + John Hughes=pure comedy genius. Gotta love pre Home Alone Macaulay Caulkin in one of his first roles:)
