The Best of John Candy

CANADA - Who doesn't like John Candy? He's a big lovable character.

I still have a sizable VHS collection of John Candy movies (and looking to get them on DVD soon) and of them I can say the best ones are (in chronological order):

1. Armed and Dangerous
2. Planes, Trains and Automobiles
3. The Great Outdoors
4. Who's Harry Crumb
5. Uncle Buck
6. Delirious

Indeed, thanks to YouTube you can watch almost all of the film Delirious right here. And thanks to the failures of YouTube, there's no sound in part 1 so its not included in the playlist above. To summarize part 1 John Candy is a soap opera writer and the soap opera he works for is rather cheesy and wants to replace him with an even cheesier guy. To summarize the plot, John Candy eventually hits his head and wakes up in the world of his own soap opera.

"This can't be! I must be dead. I am dead! I'm in hell! And my punishment is spending eternity on my own show! Oh no!"

YouTube also has a tonne of great clips from when John Candy was a member of Second City. Second City is currently coming out with a new comedy show called "Barack to the Future", which stars comedian Marty Adams (considered by some to be the next John Candy).
