10 Great John Candy Roles

31 Oct

Happy Halloween! And happy birthday, John Candy! The often over-looked comedy icon would’ve been 60 years old today, so let’s remember him and 10 of his classic performances.


1. Del Griffith- Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
More ball-handling than Larry Bird

2. Buck Russell- Uncle Buck

You ever heard of a ritual killing?

3. Dewey “Ox” Oxberger- Stripes

Sergeant, does this mean we’re through for the day?
4. Freddie Bauer- Splash

Is anybody here from Penthouse magazine?
5. Lasky- National Lampoon’s Vacation

Moose out front shoulda told ya.
6. Spike Nolan- Brewster’s Millions

All the energy comin from his hands is stopped by the fabric

7. Sheriff Bud Boomer- Canadian Bacon

A citizen with a constitutional right to bear arms

8. Barf- Spaceballs

He’s just got this thing about death… It’s not us!
9. Burton Mercer- The Blues Brothers

Three orange whips.

10.Tom Tuttle- Volunteers

In a week he’ll have that village running like Peking.
