~~ Review Script ~~
John Hughe’s classic from 1990, “Home Alone” — Not only did this slapstick family comedy single-handedly launch the career of it’s childhood star Macaulay Culkin, it also holds the distinction of being the highest grossing Christmas film of all time with over 475 million in box office revenue worldwide. Culkin plays Kevin McCallister, an eight-year-old boy, frustrated with his family, who wishes he didn’t have one. When he wakes up on Christmas morning the next day, he discovers he’s been accidentally left home alone after his entire family flies to Paris on vacation, and forgets about him. Matters are complicated when two bumbling burglars attempt to rob the large house Kevin is home alone in. nostalgiatrip1 writes, “One of the best Christmas movies and one of John Hughes best movies. The reason is because it’s a modernization story of “It’s a Wonderful Life”, but it applies to both the main character and the supporting cast, where both sides wish that the main character never existed but when they are apart they realize they really do love each other and want to be together for Christmas. Plus watching two adult idiots get outsmarted by a kid is always fun
