Only the Lonely
The late, great John Candy delivered the most surprising performance of his career as Danny Muldoon, a lonely Chicago policeman who still lives with his domineering mother (screen legend Maureen O'Hara in her first movie role in 20 years). But when Danny falls in love with a shy funeral home cosmetologist (Ally Sheedy), his sharp-tongued mom will do anything to sabotage her son's newfound happiness. Even with the advice of his sex-obsessed partner (James Belushi) and the example of his lusty neighbor (Oscar-winner Anthony Quinn), can Danny find a way to follow his own heart without killing the meanest mother of all? Macaulay Culkin makes a cameo appearance in this unique romantic comedy written and directed by Chris Columbus (director of Home Alone) and produced by John Hughes, the creator of Uncle Buck, the Breakfast Club and Planes, Trains & Automobiles.
