‘Planes Trains and Automobiles’ at TRN Drive-In

The beta episode for TRN Drive-In is here, a new movie review podcast hosted by Mickey and Jason! The first movie we will be screening at TRN Drive-In is the Thanksgiving classic Planes Trains and Automobiles.

Starring Steve Martin as Neal Page, John Candy as Del Griffith, and written and directed by the late great John Hughes, this 1987 film is a seasonal must-watch for many movie lovers. Mickey takes the lead for the review by supplying the facts, what-ifs, some unique award nominations, and just an all-around good time as we discuss the movie in detail. Favorite scenes, supporting actors, quotes, and even a push to #ReleaseTheHughesCut are featured during the podcast.

We asked out listeners to provide feedback on Planes Trains and Automobiles and we’ll be reading back your takes as we wrap the review. We’ll also reveal the next movie that will be featured on TRN Drive-In next month. Also leave us feedback on the format of the show and tell us if we missed anything.
