Uncle Buck is coming to Bluray!

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 (a pre Home Alone Macaulay Culkin) and Maizy (Gaby Hoffman) 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.

Tia Russell: Hey, Mom. Next time you take off in the middle of the night, why don’t you hire a murderer to watch the house?

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.

John Hughes also wrote, produced and directed some of the most successful movies of the 80s and 90s including Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty in Pink, and Home Alone.

Hughes also wrote screenplays under the pseudonym Edmond Dantès (named after the protagonist in The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.) These include Maid in Manhattan, Drillbit Taylor and Beethoven.

Before John Candy got the part of Uncle Buck John Goodman, Danny DeVito, Robin Williams, Jack Nicholson, Joe Pesci, John Travolta, Tom Hanks, Bill Murray, Jim Belushi, Dudley Moore, Chevy Chase, Michael Keaton, Steve Martin, Tim Allen, George Wendt, Tom Cruise, Dan Akroyd and Ed O’Neill were considered for the role.

With an estimated budget of $15 million, Uncle Buck was a box-office hit, grossing more than $79 million globally.

Hughes and Candy developed a close friendship over the years with Candy appearing in more movies written or directed by John Hughes than any other actor. Uncle Buck spawned two spin-off TV series in 1990 and 2016. John Hughes was not happy with the first series which was cancelled after 18 episodes. The second was disapproved of by the families of John Hughes and John Candy as it didn’t honour “the great and unique collaboration between Hughes and Candy”
