Blues Brothers (Dir. John Landis) (1980): After the release of Jake Blues from prison, he and brother Elwood go to visit the orphanage where they were raised by nuns. They learn that the Church stopped its support and will sell the place to the education authority, and the only way to keep the place open is if the tax on the property is paid within 11 days.

Uncle Buck (Dir. John Hughes) (1989): An idle, good natured bachelor is left in charge of his nephew and nieces during a family crisis. Unaccustomed to family life, Buck soon charms his younger relatives, but his style doesn't impress everyone, including his girlfriend. The film charts his progress from slob to a reasonable human being by having to manage with girlfriend troubles, unemployment, a sex mad neighbour, cooking breakfast and a beautiful but rebellious niece.
Groundhog Day (Dir. Harold Ramis) (1993): Teamed with a relentlessly cheery producer (Andie MacDowell) and a smart aleck cameraman, TV weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is sent to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to cover the annual Groundhog Day festivities. On his way out of town, Phil is caught in a giant blizzard - which he himself actually failed to predict - and finds himself stuck in a small town hell. Just when things couldn't get worse... they do! Phil wakes the next morning to find that it's Groundhog Day all over again... and again... and again. During the recurring 24 hour nightmare, Phil starts to realise that he can also use it to his advantage - to re-write the events of his day, and to generally have a whale of a time.
The Jerk (Dir. Carl Reiner) (1979): That wild and crazy guy, Steve Martin, makes his acting debut in this wild and crazy comedy hit The Jerk. Steve portrays Navin Johnson, adopted son of a poor black sharecropper family, whose crazy inventions lead him from rags to riches and right back to rags. Along the way, he's smitten with a lady motorcycle racer, survives a series of screwball attacks by a deranged killer, becomes a millionaire by inventing the "opti-grab" handle for eyeglasses - and shows why he's the hottest comic performer in America today.
Parenthood (Dir. Ron Howard) (1989): The Buckmans are a modern-day family facing the age-old dilemma of trying to raise children the "right way". At the centre of the storm is Gil (Steve Martin), who manages to keep his unique sense of humour while attempting to maintain a successful career and be a loving husband and parent, all at the same time. As Gil and the rest of the Buckmans discover, being the "perfect" parent often means just letting children be themselves
