I am watching that film now, and laughing as much as I did all those years ago.
And I have to admit … I am Uncle Buck, the lovable loser. I have a nephew and two nieces I love, and I’m kind of a kooky guy, and not always as responsible as I should be. Unsettled, you might say. But hey, in the end I always come through! You can count on that!
And, oddly enough, my nephew Timmy looks EXACTLY like the young Macaulay Kulkin, which is rather spooky!
Uncle Buck> “You think she hates me?”
Maisey> “With a passion.”
Uncle Buck> “Really? Do you think it’s the hat?”
Uncle Buck> “No? A lot of people hate this hat. It angers a lot of people, just the sight of it. I’ll tell you a story about that on the way to school.”
Uncle Buck> “Buck Melanoma, Moley Russel’s wart.”
