I thik nearly everyone knows John Candy, he was a great actor and brought smiles and laughter among faces of many.

Sadly he died of a heart attack in 1994, which brought a shock to the world of film, and all his fans :sad:

My question is:

What was your favourite film starring John Candy, and what do you think was his best moment!


If you cant remember who he was, you might have seen him in these films:


Uncle Buck
Cool runnings
Who's Harry Crumb?
Spaceballs
Home Alone
JFK

IN MEMORY OF JOHN CANDY 1950 - 1994

my favourite was in Uncle Buck, where he looked after the 3 kids, and he is waving a hatchett above his head whilst saying to one of the kids boyfriends : "I ve been known to circumsize a nat with one slice, i like to slice slowly, a bit off the shoulder, maybe skin the knees" :lol:

Do you remember on Harry Crumb, when he was spun on that fan, and he was so dizzy he pulled that guys wig off and fell into the water :haha:

I wasn't a big fan. Whenever I see a man, I size him up as a potential sex partner. That wasn't pretty with John Candy. I mean, Helen's tastes are varied, but they're not that varied. Helen likes things that are visually appealing to the eye. John Candy wasn't.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles was ok because there was enough Steve Martin to counteract John Candy, so I guess I pick that one.
