Cracked Movie Club: Uncle Buck

John Hughes month concludes on Cracked Movie Club! By 1989, John Hughes was closing out a decade of wild success with teen comedies and had been steadily branching out into more adult-oriented fare, most of which starred John Candy. Hughes kept that train rolling with Uncle Buck, starring Candy as the titular uncle who has to care for his brother's kids after a family tragedy. Out of the surprisingly few films of which Candy was the star, Uncle Buck was the most successful, and its production inspired John Hughes to create Home Alone, which isn't bad for a movie most of you probably haven't seen.

On this week's episode, Tom is joined by Cracked's David Bell and The Bechdel Cast's Jamie Loftus as they discuss how the movie was almost not filmed in Hughes' home state of Illinois, whether or not Uncle Buck is in the mob, and why every teen in Winnetka is goth.
