The first film kicking off our Christmas Countdown Advent Calendar is a much loved movie made in 1987.
When Neal Page’s flight from New York to Chicago is rerouted due to a freak snow storm, his carefully controlled plans go somewhat awry. With Thanksgiving fast approaching, Neal is desperate to get home and celebrate with his family. He finds an unlikely and ill-suited companion in Del Griffith, a shower curtain ring salesman, and together the pair embark on a three-day journey to get back to Chicago.
This heartfelt comedy classic from John Hughes, with Steve Martin and John Candy playing the two leading roles, is perfect for the festive season and is sure to start awakening that ‘goodwill to all men’ spirit.
