I’m gonna keep going until I put a dent in this damn list of movies.
Home Alone (1990) Dir. Chris Columbus Writ. John Hughes Stars: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern Rated PG 103 mins. Comedy IMDB 7.4
Home Alone is a classic. Seriously. If you haven’t seen this movie, chances are you never watch TV ever. Or your parents hated you and didn’t bother introducing you to the best Christmas movie of all times. (Yes, I realize it’s not Christmas… I told you, this is a LONG list of movies I’m behind on reviewing)
Kevin is an eight year old boy with basically horrible parents. Let’s be real, they’re really bad parents on Home Alone. But thankfully, it makes for a hilarious movie!
Home Alone is about a little boy named Kevin whose family is leaving for Paris for Christmas and, in the frantic process of making it to the airport on time after sleeping late, they forget about him. Yes, there is an incident of a miscount of children, but seriously, how do you not look around and notice your one small child that should be holding your hand the whole way is missing? Not only is he left home alone (tadaaa!) but his house is being targeted by a couple of nincompoop burglars. All alone, with no grown ups and, apparently, having never been taught to call 911 in case of emergencies, Kevin is left alone to save his house in a series of amusing hijinks that are still the funniest things to watch ever.
It’s classic family-friendly, fully hilarious, slapstick comedy that never gets old. Totally necessary!
My Rating: 9/10
