Ryan Reynolds’ Tribute to John Candy Will Make You Laugh and Cry!
It's been 25 years since we've lost legendary comedian John Candy. He passed away in Mexico after suffering a heart attack at the age of 43. Some of his best performances (and some of my FAVORITES) can be seen in films like "Only the Lonely," "Uncle Buck," "The Great Outdoors," and of course "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles."
Many are paying tribute to the comedic legend on Twitter. Among the most memorable is Ryan Reynolds' tribute. With the help of John Candy's kids, Chris and Jen, fellow Canadian Reynolds posted a nearly two minute video highlighting some of Candy's greatest works. Try to see if you can name them all:
This made me laugh and cry! One of my favorite John Candy movies is "The Great Outdoors." I can quote the entire movie, that it annoys the people around me. And who can forget that memorable scene in "Uncle Buck" when he flips the giant pancake with a shovel? He made everyone want an Uncle Buck! It's safe to say we all agree with Reynolds, he really was a treasure. Here's one of my favorite scenes from "The Great Outdoors"
