"Uncle Buck" (1989) Uncle: Buck Russell ( John Candy) 'Uncle Fester' factor: Hes the black sheep of the family, the slobby one who didnt get a job, didnt get a wife and never learned to stop himself from making inappropriate comments. Sure, he has a heart of gold, but his niece and nephew have to get beyond the bad personal hygiene and the rotund figure to find that out. Uncle duds: Nubby plaid woolen overcoat, thin scarf and, almost always, a hat. Say uncle: I wont let him get into that Satan stuff or nude chicks; Ill leave that for me. J.P.
