The film was initially marketed as a potentially loose remake of Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987), which was also released through Paramount Pictures. Both films feature similar plots, of a businessman who has to return home in a short amount of time and finds himself under the company of an annoying loudmouth. Although it was never billed as a remake, numerous interviews claimed the material was at least inspired by John Hughes' film.
