If you have Netflix Instant, I highly recommend watching "Only the Lonely". It perfectly highlights Candy's acting capabilities while adding some genuine laughs in for good measure. Chris Columbus could have taken the plot of "man still lives with his mother" and turned it into a low-brow, one note comedy. Instead, he wisely develops Danny Muldoon's character and situation, with him still living with his mother not out of ineptitude or low wealth (he's a smart Chicago cop), but out of fear for his mother (wonderfully played by Maureen O'Hara, with this being her first film in over twenty years).
