Get Thanksgiving-ready at Nitehawk with these turkeys! 

It’s a few days before Thanksgiving and Windy City ad-man Neal Page (Steve Martin) is stuck in New York for the world’s most pointless marketing meeting. With a holiday flight to catch, Neal looks forward to spending time with his family in just a few short hours. It was supposed to be easy. He wasn’t counting on a blizzard sending his flight to Kansas, and he definitely wasn’t counting on meeting chatty shower curtain ring salesman Del Griffith (John Candy), his new partner in navigating the holiday hell of PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES.
