One of the greatest feel-good comedies of all time, Uncle Buck still over-delivers the feels, the laughs, and one of the best performances of comic genius John Candy. Candy plays Buck Russell, a lovable but slovenly bachelor, who suddenly finds himself as the temporary caretaker of his nephew and nieces during a family emergency. His freewheeling attitude soon causes tension with his sullen teenage niece Tia, long-suffering girlfriend Chanice, and just about everyone else who crosses his path. With heart, hilarity, and just a touch of subversion, this movie has something for everyone – of every age!
