Home Alone is one of those genuine Christmas classics that deserves to be watched every year.
It features a family who abandon their child, who has to live alone over Christmas. The whole film’s conceit would have been impossible in a modern age with mobile phones of course.
Then, some burglars come along and try to rob the place. Except, they are so incompetent this 9 year old boy manages to fight them off.
Despite the total, ridiculousness of the whole thing, it’s still fantastic fun. This is the film that made Macauley Culkin a superstar and it’s easy to see why, he’s genuinely likeable and a really good actor in this role.
In the end, it’s all a bit Roadrunner versus Wile E. Coyote, and hilarious with it!
Just go and watch it.
