An enjoyable comedy with good performances and chemistry from Steve Martin and John Candy.

It gets a bit annoying and predictable in the middle but it pays off in the end. Just a lot of very relatable; albeit often unbelievable, travel humor and situations. Honestly I rather prefer Tommy Boy and Black Sheep to this movie (even if those 2 may have been heavily influenced by this one)
