Day 4: A Tribute to Genius Comedy Writing

UNCLE BUCK

Bachelor and all round slob, Buck, babysits his brother’s rebellious teenage daughter and her cute younger brother and sister. (IMDB.com)

UNCLE BUCKKKKK!!!!!!! Oh, how we all miss John Candy.

My love of Uncle Buck is so well-known that I’ve received the DVD as a gift on three separate occasions. You know it’s a classic when someone who has never seen the movie still laughs at its clips. Confession: the TV version is better than the full.

I’ve selected the FAMOUS “mole” scene. Buck goes in for a parent-teacher conference (although he’s the uncle) and is faced with a bitter Principal who has a giant mole on her face. Distracting? Perhaps.

It’s going to be the longest clip I’ll ever post, but all 4 minutes are worth it. Enjoy…

Tomorrow unleashes #6 on the continuous 10-day countdown of genius comedy writing moments! Who will it be? Seinfeld? Wayne’s World? You’ll have to wait and see.

Love,

Aunt Buck
