Nick at Nite to Premiere Its First Feature Films - Mega-Hits Crocodile Dundee and Planes, Trains & Automobiles to Air Tuesday, February 20 & 27 Respectively

NEW YORK, Feb. 14 -- Nick at Nite will mark its first feature-film telecasts with the classic 1980s comedy adventures Crocodile Dundee and the acclaimed Planes, Trains & Automobiles starring Steve Martin and John Candy. The two feature films will premiere Tuesday, February 20 & 27 respectively from 9-11 p.m. (ET/PT), and will join the Nick at Nite programming line-up which recently added the popular family comedy series Growing Pains.

Filmed in the Australian Outback and New York City, the 1986 mega-hit Crocodile Dundee, follows infamous rough-and-tumble crocodile hunter, Mick "Crocodile" Dundee (Golden Globe winner Paul Hogan - Best Actor, Motion Picture Musical or Comedy), whose life changes when he meets a story-seeking American reporter Sue Charlton (Linda Kozlowski). He charms her with his grit, saves her from the grasp of a toothy reptile -- and accepts her invitation to visit New York. The adventurer who has "never been anywhere" accompanies Sue to the sophisticated urban jungles of Manhattan where their romance blooms. Enduring the rough streets, he has finally met his match. And Sue gets more than just a story as the "wonder from Down Under" rocks the Big Apple to its core. Paramount Pictures distributed the Australian production.

In the acclaimed 1987 comedy road flick, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, sleek Chicago ad man Neal Page (Steve Martin) and rumpled shower curtain salesman Del Griffith (John Candy) are "oil and water" travelers fated to share an exasperating, multi-mode journey home for Thanksgiving. A sudden snowstorm forces the seatmates' plane to land in Wichita, and Neal finds himself stuck with Del (John Candy), a chatterbox who drives him to distraction with advice, bad jokes and conversation. Unable to find a room in any of the four-star hotels, Neal must accept Del's invitation to share accommodations in a cheapo motel. As fate traps the mismatched pair together, they endure every indignity known to the modern traveler as they try to make their way to Chicago, first by train and then by refrigerator truck. The film was written and directed by John Hughes and is a Paramount Pictures production.
