Ian West’s review published on Letterboxd:
I love how every November two different things happen... I watch this 3 or 4 times leading up to Thanksgiving... OR it’s a mad dash to try and watch it before Thanksgiving. This year was the mad dash.
I love John Candy. He was my favorite funny person growing up and I was completely devestated when he died. His performance here as eternally optimistic Del Griffith absolutely wrecks me, and the “You wanna hurt me?” speech will instantly make me cry. Maybe it’s because there’s a little Del Griffith in all of us? Or maybe it’s because there’s a little John Candy in all of us <3
Side note: I really want to sync Steve Martin figuring out the twist at the end with the Saw twist music.
