Uncle Buck succedes as a light hearted comedy. John Candy plays his role well as a manchild trying to babysit is nephew and nieces while his brother and sister in law are away tending an ailing family member. The clash is greatest with teenager Tia and Buck.

Its interesting how Buck tries to guide these children right from wrong yet he fails in many ways to take responsibilities for his own life. Although you cannot take the movie too seriously, the lesson learned is that blood is thicker than water and an adult will go to the ends of the earth to protect a child relative from unsavory activity.

Candy's comedic lines are certainly worth a viewing if nothing else. The man was a talent and its a shame his life was so short.
