    I actually have two favorites:

    Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

    Besides just being his usual comedic, sometimes corny self, Candy also had moments that invoked sympathy and compassion. Plus Steve Martin actually played more of the straight role in this one, which showed his versatility of which we all know much better now.

    Only the Lonely

    Here he plays the romantic lead which was a different role for him, and I thought it worked well. The story and situations were funny instead of him, necessarily. Acting alongside the great Maureen O'Hara and the peculiar Ally Sheedy made a great combo.

    Plus both these films are based in and around that great town of CHICAGO!!!

    What a loss when we lost him.

    Groundhog Day was Bill Murray.

    Uncle Buck or Great Outdoors is Candy's best. But never forget Cool Runnings.

    My favorite was Uncle Buck. If you like John Candy, he was the main character in the film. Touching, humorous, well acted (especially from a young McCully Culkin), what's not to like?

    Either Uncle Buck or The Great Outdoors.

    Summer Rental had some slapstick and some hilarity, good for all age groups. I saw it as a kid and I still think it's funny.
