John Candy stars in this John Hughes comedy as an idle, good-natured bachelor who’s left in charge of his nephew and nieces during a family crisis. Unaccustomed to suburban life, fun loving Uncle Buck soon charms his younger relatives Miles and Maizy with his hefty cooking and his new way of doing the laundry. But his carefree style doesn’t impress everyone, including Tia (Jean Kelly), his rebellious teenage niece, and Chanice (Amy Madigan), his impatient girlfriend. Uncle Buck is the last person you’d think of to watch the kids. But with a little luck and a lot of love, he manages to surprise everyone in this heartwarming family comedy.

This is one of those movies that it is impossible to dislike. John Candy is superb in the lead role and he is the slacker uncle that we would all love to have. This is John Hughes`s most underrated movie and provides plenty of laughs.
This film is a delight. John Candy being his usual reliable and genuine character, reluctantly called upon to child-mind his nieces and nephew; even though their uncle, he can't remember their names! The story entails his relationship with different people in his life, and his teenage niece in particular; with her moody attitude and angst. His simple non-complicated life, brings about comical situations as the story goes along. A special 80's gem and classic, with a true talent in John Candy and supporting cast.
