John Who? lmao. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, baby! We got Steve Martin, we got John Candy, we got Kevin Bacon. We also watch some other trash with Dan Ackroyd (confirmed: not funny). So strap on a set and join us as we dive into the Best and Worst of John Hughes circa the 1980's.

A man must struggle to travel home for Thanksgiving with a lovable oaf of a shower curtain ring salesman as his only companion.

A Chicago man and his family go camping with his obnoxious brother-in-law.

Each week we take the best and worst films from a filmmaker or franchise and discuss why one worked and one didn't. And we use freakin maths to determine the best and worst, so no arguing. Unless you think science is wrong???...yeah thought so.
