Emma Stone’s Naughty ‘Planes, Trains And Automobiles’ Monologue Wins Steve Martin Seal Of Approval
Emma Stone is a huge fan of the 1987 John Hughes comedy, Planes, Trains and Automobiles. So much so that she memorized a vulgar and exasperated monologue by the film’s costar, Steve Martin, reciting it during a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in a wonderfully tasteful television moment.
Known as “the rental car scene,” the original film’s monologue has Martin’s character, Neal Page, taking out his frustrations on a clerk. The film depicts the three-day odyssey of Martin and John Candy as they try to get home to Chicago in time for Thanksgiving. Along the way, everything goes wrong, and hilarity ensues.
