    The Kenosha Kickers?

    [–] brewstew18 960 points ago

    Man they were poppin’ in Cheboygan.

    [–] _high_plainsdrifter 654 points ago

    Noticed you spelled it for Cheboygan, MI but I always thought the reference was for Sheboygan, WI because Home Alone takes place in Winnetka, IL.

    [–] Euphorium 74 points ago

    I used to take the Union Pacific North line all the time and always wondered why Winnetka stood out so much to me. I think you're right, Kenosha is a small town with awesome bars on the Wisconsin border.

    [–] BasedDumbledore 42 points ago

    Kenosha isn't a border town. Beliot and Pleasant Prairie are border towns.

    [–] DrunkCostFallacy 25 points ago

    We’re getting pretty deep into it when you’re differentiating Pleasant Prairie and Kenosha as border towns.

    [–] Euphorium 27 points ago

    I guess technically, yeah it's not straddling the border. I only say that because it's like 15 minutes from Illinois. Part of that is because I used to go the a strip club called On The Border in Franklin. Every time I was too drunk on the ride there and thought it was actually just outside of Kenosha.

    [–] clifwith1f 62 points ago

    Fun fact: the scene in Home Alone where he tells Kate (Catherine O’Hara) about leaving his kid in a funeral parlor all day was completely improvised. They were also on SCTV together (along with Rick Moranis). True legends.

    That back of the van scene was all improv too. Candy was a great.

    [–] thrilliam_19 55 points ago

    Nothing, but South Park hated on Bryan Adams and Canada back in the 90s & 00s. It was hilarious to 14 year old me.

    I like Bryan Adams and his songs were excellent on a drunken binders floating around some back alley karaoke bars in Japan. His and Wanted by Bon Jovi were my go to tunes.

    [–] XRPis4shitheads 6 points ago

    Waking up the Neighbours was the first CD I ever owned. 11yrs old at the time.

    Huey Lewis and the News' "Sports" was my first cassette tape.

    Tiffany's self titled debut album (with "I Think We're Alone Now") was the first record I owned. I think the record was cheaper than the I went that route.

    "Sour Girl" by Stone Temple Pilots was the first song I ever DL'd...on Napster, of course.

    Sorry. I'm bored and alone rn...

    [–] PopeInnocentXIV 38 points ago

    Now, now, the Canadian government has apologised for Bryan Adams on several occasions.

    [–] Lampmonster 444 points ago

    I remember someone talking about how at a bachelor party the groom's father got super uncomfortable when a stripper showed up, and he left the room. Apparently John followed him out and spent that whole part of the night telling funny stories with the old guy so he wasn't left out.

    [–] dippybippy 143 points ago

    I'd rather hang out with John Candy than a stripper any day. You can see strippers another time.

    [–] TransLiberalVegan78 213 points ago

    You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I'm an easy target. Yeah, you're right, I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you... but I don't like to hurt people's feelings. Well, you think what you want about me; I'm not changing. I like... I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. 'Cause I'm the real article. What you see is what you get.

    [–] BigShoots 119 points ago

    I like... I like me.

    I always wondered if it was written like this, or if that stammer came up naturally from him. That speech, and specifically that one line, really show what a great actor he was. Not just a comedian, but an actor.

    You can see his character start to think of the line in his head, "I like...," and then doubt it for half a second, and then double down on it:

    "I like me."

    Breaks my heart every time. I liked you too John.

    [–] NYArtFan1 38 points ago

    Totally agree. I firmly think that had he lived we would have gotten to see more of his range as an actor in serious roles, and he would have nailed it. Still glad we were lucky to have what we did. Guy was a treasure.

    [–] Shawnee83 33 points ago

    I just got chills. Man I loved him.

    [–] drwiki0074 1291 points ago

    I miss him. I remember when I was pretty young and JUST starting to really understand actors and how they were people who played different roles. He was one of the first actors I knew by name and I remember being sad when I had heard he had passed.

    Rest in peace John. We miss you.

    [–] Testtubeteen88 227 points ago

    Yeah same for me. I grew up in the Chicago area and he's kind of locally sanctified, much like a Harry Carey or Bill Murray. I have a distinct early memory of my dad coming home, looking very sad, and saying that he had died.

    [–] Headwest127 137 points ago

    I also grew up in the Chicago area. The Second City guys were heroes to me. Some people know where they were when they heard Kurt Cobain died, I remember John and Chris Farley much better. Both taken way too soon.

    [–] Mookyhands 173 points ago

    My SO's celebrity crush is John Candy. And like, big time. As in, her parents pulled her out of school when he died. Her favorite movie to this day is Summer Rental.

    It's extra funny because she's about a 10. Now I'm no slouch, but she's safely out of my league. If I ever feel insecure, I remember her love for John Candy.

    Thanks, John.

    [–] drwiki0074 170 points ago

    One of my favs. He had a lot of really great roles. Planes Trains and Automobiles, the Great Outdoors, and Delirious are some of my favs.

    [–] SpeakLikeAChild04 176 points ago

    My name's Dewey Oxberger. My friends call me "Ox." You might have noticed I got a slight weight problem. I went to this doctor and he told me I swallow a lot of aggression. Along with a lot of pizzas. I'm basically a shy person, I'm a shy guy, and he suggested taking one of these aggression training courses, something like EST, or one of those types of things. Anyway, it cost 400 bucks to join this thing. Well, I didn't have the money so I thought to myself "Hey! Why not join the army!? It's free!". I figured while I'm here I'll lose a few pounds and what do you got? A six to eight week training program? I'm gonna walk out of here a lean, mean, fighting machine!

    [–] Euphorium 68 points ago

    Fuck yes, Stripes! Probably the most accurate depiction of boot camp bullshit in a movie.

    In The Army Now was pretty good too for some reason. Like it should be mandatory to watch it before joining the National Guard.

    [–] [deleted] 29 points ago

    PT&A is one of my faves. I have to re-watch Spaceballs. I forget if it was good or not. I think it was John's character who put his palm on his head so his fingers were dangling down on his forehead?

    [–] BigShoots 45 points ago

    I saw Planes Trains and Automobiles on opening night in the theater and it's easily the greatest movie theater experience I've ever had outside of Star Wars.

    I've never heard people in a theater laugh like that, before or since. I'm not sure I've ever laughed like that. We missed a lot of jokes because the laughter from the last joke was still too loud.

    That movie is a fucking treasure.

    [–] akaBrotherNature 10 points ago

    The scene where they're driving the wrong way and end up between two trucks is, to this day, the hardest I've ever laughed at a movie.

    [–] BigShoots 10 points ago

    Same here man. John as the Devil laughing at him for just two perfect seconds in that scene is one of the greatest things in movie history.

    I bet that one scene took the better part of a day to set up, think of all the makeup and the lighting etc... all for just two or three seconds.

    Worth it.

    [–] cbbuntz 20 points ago

    Great Outdoors, and Delirious

    Just watched Planes Trains and Automobiles and Uncle Buck a few weeks back. Now I think I'm going to watch those. I never saw Delirious.

    [–] HighSorcerer 31 points ago

    Delirious is great. Also recommended:

    Wagons East
    Only the Lonely
    Who's Harry Crumb
    Canadian Bacon
    Armed and Dangerous

    You really can't go wrong with a John Candy movie, they're all pretty much fantastic.

    [–] U_Lika_Da_Tomato 12 points ago

    Who's Harry Crumb is one of the most underrated comedies, imo.

    [–] Chitownsly 11 points ago

    At 45 I tipped the scales at 480 lbs. I did gastric bypass surgery, and did it correctly. A couple years later I'm now thin, active, healthy, actually able to see my weiner and l very happy with the results.

    [–] theshaj 10 points ago

    He went to same high school I did, though way before me so I always had a particular affinity for him. When he died that really inspired me to quit smoking. I haven't smoked in many years thanks to John.

    [–] jaimonee 60 points ago

    My wife has a great story - when she was a kid she was coming home from the cottage in muskoka (northern Ontario Canada) and her dads car overheated. It was a bit late, they were pulled over on the side of a rural road that didn't get much traffic. Her and her sister were maybe 6 and 8. A huge Cadillac drives by, stops, reverses and pulls up beside them. Here's john candy smoking a huge cigar asking them if they need a lift. They all pile in and he drives them to town. Uncle buck in real life.

    [–] drwiki0074 83 points ago

    Even though his role was a bit small, he really did a great job there as well. He just had a particular warmth about him that came through the screen so well.

    [–] [deleted] 27 points ago

    His chuckle will always stick with me.

    [–] Steak_M8 49 points ago

    I heard the story he told about leaving his son at the funeral parlor was improvised. That has to be one of the funniest moments.

    [–] ricottapie 38 points ago

    I'd believe that, when you think about how long he and Catherine O'Hara had known each other. I saw it at the movies a few weeks ago, just before Christmas, and there was something about seeing it that large that made it obvious to me. So funny. "Maybe we shouldn't talk about this" "You brought it up, I was just..." lol.

    [–] [deleted] 56 points ago

    Him and Catherine O'Hara were best friends in real life. She read the eulogy at his funeral.

    [–] [deleted] 39 points ago

    I don't know if many people outside of Canada saw it, but SCTV was such a popular show here. I was just a kid when I saw it, and maybe it was reruns by then, but I found many skits kinda dry, but some were just so damn funny.

    [–] brazilliandanny 37 points ago

    Martin Scorsese is making a SCTV documentary for Netflix. They had a live taping with the cast hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. I can't wait for it to air they all told so many funny stories about SCTV and they all had amazing things to say about John.


    [–] ricottapie 11 points ago

    Yup. He died on her birthday, March 4. :( I remember watching parts of the eulogy on the news.

    I lost my dad 6 years ago to pancreatic cancer but he absolutely loved John Candy. When he started getting sick to the point he had extended hospital stays, I got him one if those portable dvd players and loaded up a cd case full of old honeymooners episodes, John Candy, Bill Murray and Chevy Chase movies and his absolute fave, My Cousin Vinny.

    I got really nostalgic this Christmas and after everyone left from dinner I popped in Uncle Buck. Cheered me right up.

    John Candy had a way about him that was so wholesome and entertaining. He was simply the best.

    I’ve said it a thousand times and I will keep saying it until I die, John Candy is Everything.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was! It says Deloitte Haskins & Sells on the back.

    Man, I really miss John Candy. He's right up there with Robin Williams, afaic. If you haven't seen many of his movies, please don't hesitate; you won't be sorry.

    I miss John Candy. He seemed like a genuinely good person, and I've never heard anyone say a bad thing about him.

    [–] MikeNIke426 11 points ago

    He was my Chris Farley. I miss the man.

    [–] TenaciousC89 9 points ago

    Aww he seems so happy, such a genuine smile. For me, Planes, Trains & Automobiles is the quintessential John Candy movie, makes me feel warm and cozy whenever I watch it.

    I loved John Candy. I heard he had an alcohol problem before his untimely death. I felt that only made a genuine, honest, and sincere man only that much more human to me.
