All time great movie, and one with a heart. John Candy and Steve Martin have tremendous chemistry.

First-rate in every way, any time of the year! But especially at Thanksgiving!

For seven years running, our son plans out an entire evening for Polar Express.

He sets up sections of the living for Premium Class (rocking chair with blanket and pillow), First Class, portion of sectional facing TV, with a blanket and a pillow, Economy, portion of sectional at an angle to the tv, with a pool towel - no pillow.

Then he makes a menu and takes orders but everyone gets hot cocoa - timed to be served when the hot cocoa scene in the movie comes on!

So, tonight, I fired it up to watch.
