Fifteen Facts About Uncle Buck

The 1989 movie Uncle Buck was such a wonderful showcase for the larger-than-life personality of the late John Candy. Aside from Planes, Trains and Automobiles, it's my favorite Candy movie. His interaction with the children (playing characters that were Buck's nieces and nephew) was so well acted by Candy, so sweet and genuine, it was hard to believe the children weren't actually related to him. But did you know that Danny DeVito was the first choice for the role? I can't imagine the movie being such a lasting American comedy classic if that had happened, could you?
