John Candy - We miss you.
A wonderfully light RomCom that stands as one of the best tributes to John
Candy (alongside Uncle Buck).
Though, this is a comedy, it still allows Candy to show his true acting
skills, and many of the choicest comedy moments go to Maureen O'Hara as
Candy's mother, who almost steals the film.
It is a sad trait in Hollywood theory which appears to dictate that
comediens can't do serious acting and so should never be given serious
roles, yet many have proved this to be wrong. John Candy himself proved it
in JKF, Dan Aykroyd did in Driving Miss Daisy, and Robin Williams has done
it on numerous occasions.
This film reminds us of the John Candy we will always love, as the
big guy with a big heart to match.
Farewell John, you are sadly missed..

Well-intentioned comedy-drama-romance, but missing a heartwarming spark...
It was a grand and inspired move from writer-director Chris Columbus to
bring Maureen O'Hara back to the screen in a modern-day romantic
comedy, playing the feisty, hen-pecking mother of an unmarried Chicago
cop--but that's where Columbus' good ideas run aground. O'Hara's steely
looks and angry outbursts are wonderful, and she's quite comfortable
acting alongside John Candy as her son, yet this script is so thin it
has to rely on mean-spirited fantasy and dumb, time-worn slapstick and
insults to pad its running-time. The Chicago sites and neighborhoods
aren't really captured with any flavor (the city never comes to life),
and James Belushi just gets in the way as the proverbial best friend.
Candy does some nice work, and Ally Sheedy (as Candy's new girlfriend
from the local funeral parlor) works hard to give the love story a
quirky bounce, but the results are a near-miss. ** from ****.
