The original title was Planes, Trains, Boats, Bicycles, Skates, Skiis, Horses, Hang Gliders and Automobiles, but they knew it was just too much. They had to cut scenes not just to shorten the runtime, but the title.

That was a John Candy ad-lib line, even though Steve said it.
Andy Lipschultz (Unit Publicist): To me the funniest line, the famous line, was, "Where's your other hand?" "Between two pillows," "Those aren't pillows!" Okay, that was not in the script. That is a John Candy line...That was something John Candy came up with on set.

New blu ray is out with lots of extra scenes. Here's the one where candy is eating and smoking at same time. Classic
You're welcome

One of the best holiday films ever made, and a fantastic chance for John Candy to play a dramatic role. The guy had serious range and emotion.

Still sorely missed :(

My parents took me to see this in the theater when I was a kid and I strutted around school like I was the hottest of shiat. Just the littlest.

I have a hard time believing that there is a 4 hour version of this movie. Longer, yes. But not 4 hours.

And it is a sad little movie. Sort of a John Hughes version of Grave of the Fireflies.
