Home Alone is a highly successful and beloved family Christmas comedy about a young boy named Kevin who is accidentally left behind when his family takes off for a vacation in France over the holiday season. Once he realizes that they have left him home alone, he has to learn to fend for himself (which he does so charmingly). Eventually, he has to protect his home against two bumbling burglars “Wet Bandits” who are planning to rob every house in his Chicago neighborhood.
The slapstick may be somewhat violent, but Kevin’s charming presence helped this film to become successful and the highest grossing Christmas movie of all time. There are also sequels to this movie, which you should really see.
It stars: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, John Heard and Catherine O’Hara to name a few.
I love this movie and watch it at least twice a year. Plus, I have seen all the sequels too! I recommend this movie if you have not yet seen it. If you have seen this movie, let me know your own thoughts below.
