Given the number of teeny bopper comedies John Hughes wrote and directed, the film Planes, Trains, And Automobiles is a notable and entertaining diversion. Rated "R" for a scene with Steve Martin saying the word fuck like a million times with a rep of the fictional Marathon rental agency (who is the actress who plays the secretary in Ferris Bueller's Day Off), it's actually thematically similar to Home Alone but contains very few adolescents or teens. It also touches on a truth about traveling, which is two people in a car over a long period of time does not guarantee friendship though it does encourage great stories, as fodder650 believes will happen with the Spyker, Saab CEOS on their journey.
