John Candy
This time last week it was Halloween. A time when ghosts of the past come back to haunt us. A time when terror walks the streets. A time when we come to understand the true meaning of horror.

That’s right. I'm talking about John Candy’s birthday! And what better way to celebrate the big man’s big day than with a big list of his best films.

RIP John.

10. Stripes
This was JC’s big break out role. Also, man, Bill Murray was hot when he was young.


9. Armed and Dangerous
In which John Candy gets to hang out with the dad from American Pie.


8. Blues Brothers
“Orange whip? Orange whip? Three orange whips”.


7. Who’s Harry Crumb?
He makes a compelling private eye. And a convincing Hungarian.


6. The Great Outdoors
I feel like this scene provides some vital insights into exactly why John Candy had a heart attack at the age of 43.


5. Brewster’s Millions
Fun fact: Richard Pryor once set himself on fire while high on cocaine. Doesn’t really have anything to do with this film, or John Candy, but it’s fun to know.


4. Spaceballs
He’s his own best friend.


3. Cool Runnings
The last film the guy ever made in its entirety and the best slow clap ever committed to celluloid.


2. Uncle Buck
I think it’s fair to say that when most people hear the words “John Candy”, it’s this film that immediately leaps to mind. Pretty much the definition of lovable buffoon.


1. Planes, Trains and Automobiles
Steve Martin, John Candy and one of the best comedies of the last few decades. The actual definition of lovable buffoon.
