One of the great Christmas movies. It's the movie that made Macaulay Culkin a star. A wonderful about a boy who gets left "home alone" during Christmas and must deal with home invaders. The last great John Hughes film.

Best Christmas movie by far and what I mean of that is the movie starts of kid friendly, horrible family with one 8 year old annoying kid but the movie turns into saw with all of these traps. but still it is a Christmas movie that no body can't miss.

An instant classic. This movie is hilarious whatever age you are at. Just sit back an enjoy the slapstick comedy. Culkin really was a great actor. This movie furthers my belief that if I could party with any famous person, it would be Macaulay Culkin

After a falling out with his parents (Cathrine O' Hara & John Heard), a clever and precocious eight-year old Kevin McCalister (Macaulay Culkin) makes a wish that his family would just go away. But, the day they leave for their Christmas vacation to Paris, they leave in such a hurry that they forget one thing: KEVIN. He makes the most of his situation by doing all the things he couldn't do without his family's permission and discovers the thrill of being independent, but then unexpectedly finds himself defending his home from local wet bandits Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern doing it with more punch and style than anyone else could do.

Forget the main film, well do not forget it but you probably know all about it. Has kid fend off against thieves. Its okay I suppose for its audience but forget that I want to focus on the pure stroke of brilliance inside this film and that is the Angels with filthy souls movie. NOT how it is used but the short clip itself. It just is genius with the incredibly sinister Johnny letting Snake know who's boss. The scene is brilliant and the performance by whoever plays Johnny is tremendous. I would have put Home Alone on my villains list, but I didn't because everyone probably who think that I am taking about Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern, and not Johnny who is so evil he just never stops shooting and Laughing even after his victim is long dead.
