In his review of 'The Sandlot,' Roger Ebert called the 1993 comedy "the summertime version of 'A Christmas Story.' The venerable critic was certainly onto something there, as both movies take nostalgic looks back at more innocent times and each rely heavily on the talents of its child actor cast.
'Planes, Trains & Automobiles' was the first John Hughes-directed film to focus on adults, rather than teenagers.
In the 1987 comedy, Steve Martin and John Candy play business travelers with the very adult problem of trying to get home during the crush of Thanksgiving travel. The mismatched pair get into a variety of misadventures during their three day trip from New York to Chicago. When they finally arrive, the film ends on a touching Thanksgiving-appropriate note.
Robert Watling and Kelli Johnston are a speedy pair. In fact, Watling proposed to Johnston last October after they completed the Chicago Marathon, which was one of the many 26.2 mile races the couple had completed together.

There is just something about fast food that makes people abuse 911. In the past, folks have been arrested after calling emergency services to report problems with their orders at Burger King, McDonald's, Subway and Hardee's.
If there is one thing the internet has taught us it's that people really love bacon.
