As I was watching Planes, Trains, and Automobiles the other day I realized that I don’t like that movie at all. It’s just not that funny. However, there is one scene in which Steve Martin says the F word about 25 times and who is he saying it to? None other than Edie McClurg, best know for her role as Mrs. Pool in The Hogan Family and Grace in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
Edie is a master at playing the homely nice woman role. The care free, nothing is wrong with life, “have a nice day!” type. She’s a staple in many John Hughes movies and has had a great career. So you might wonder, “what is Edie up to these days?” Well, with her perky voice she managed to land a gig on The Life and Times of Tim and she still gets bit parts on Television. With over 160 credits to her name, Edie is still going strong.

Alan Ruck! What are you doing buddy? Guy looks like a pedophile. Funny thing is there is a real pedophile in this picture. That’s right. Jeffrey Jones has had his run in with the law. Come on Principal Rooney! Get it together man.
Anyway, best of luck Edie. Keep it up.
