Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (1985)

Still the greatest road movie ever made.



Midnight Run (1988)

Extremely fun action/comedy/road movie. Charles Grodin is a seriously overlooked comedic talent and this is probably the funniest movie of the decade, for whatever that's worth. The ending is painful 80s'ish, but whatever. You've got to take the good 80s with the bad 80s.



Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)

I sat down planning to write a good review, except now I'm remembering John Hughes' other movies. It's hard to sympathize with the cheesy sentimentality of someone who publicly mocked visible minorities and whose heroes sexually molest teenage girls.

Let's just pretend John Hughes never existed. Want a 80s road comedy? Midnight Run is a hundred times funnier, has just as cheesy an ending, and doesn't leave such a bad taste in my mouth.
