Columbus... enhances the comedic bits with commentary on the human condition: the emergence of male-female love; the silver cord between mother and son; the plight of aging single men whose only ties are their pub companions.

A pretty easy ride, almost entirely because of John Candy and the miraculous casting of Maureen O'Hara.

Orchestrates a peaceful stream of gags and one-liners while piecing together a puzzle of broken hearts...one of Columbus's best films, and easily ranks as Candy's most dimensional performance. He's a joy to watch here.

As a romance, Only the Lonely undoubtedly succeeds.

One of Candy's sweetest (and most underappreciated) films

John Candy sells it.
