Josh Allen Says He Loves This Thanksgiving Movie Filmed in WNY
Thanksgiving is tomorrow and that means that most stores and restaurants will be closed, as people celebrate the holiday with their families.
It's also the start of the holiday season, which is always a special thing to think about.
Buffalo Bills fans will once again watch their team play on Turkey Day, as the Bills travel back to Detroit to play the Lions at Ford Field at 12:30 pm. It's the first NFL game of the traditional three games on Thanksgiving.
The Bills will be on short-rest as they just played at Ford Field against the Cleveland Browns; a game the Bills won 31-23. The game was moved to Detroit from Orchard Park because of the lake effect snowstorm that struck Western New York from Thursday evening to early Sunday morning.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen has been a busy man this week, with the lake effect snowstorm, travel and game preparation. He did find time to once again join Good Morning Football's Kyle Brandt for Kyle Brandt's Basement, which Josh does every Tuesday night.
If you're unfamiliar, Allen answers questions from Brandt on the week before and of course, the lake effect snowstorm stories were at the top of the mind. Brandt also gives Allen an old '80s or '90s movie for Allen to watch that he's never seen before.
This time it was the 1987 Thanksgiving comedy classic, Planes, Trains & Automobiles.
Allen gave one of his highest grades so far (a strong B+). He loved the movie, which starred Steve Martin and John Candy.
Brandt then let Allen know much of that movie was filmed in Western New York, like the I-219 between West Seneca and Springville, along with South Dayton and Batavia.
Josh was blown away and said he loved the movie even more now. You can watch it below.
This scene was filmed in Batavia.
The irony of this movie is that the Bills just dealt with this crazy travel sequence with the snowstorm. That's the point and arch of Planes, Trains & Automobiles.
If you're wondering, Josh's next movie assignment is watching one of the funniest sports movies of all-time, Major League.
