8 year old Kevin finds himself left Home Alone when his family accidentally leaves without him for a family vacation. Now in the position of protecting his home from a pair of burglars, impending disaster is around every corner! Funny, exciting, endearing- this is a great film to watch with family around the holidays.
A timeless classic, for kids and families of the early 90s. John Williams' music is fantastic.
The plot is dumb beyond belief, but is so funny it made me laugh till my stomach hurt and I choked. For the humor I think its worth it
I asked for some BluRays and you said you had the DVD but you get 12 of these. It is a great movie but 12 plus all the DVDs.
I love this movie. I remember watching this as a kid. It brings back memories. This is a great Christmas classic.
Directed by Chris Columbus in 1990, this Amrican comedy tells about the adventure of Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin)---a boy who is mistakenly left behind when his family flies to Paris for their Christmas vacation.
Kevin initially relishes being home alone, but soon has to contend with two would-be burglars played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.
It is one of the best and enjoyable Christmas movie of all time.
A good Christmas family movie. I liked it. My favourite part is the end when the thugs tried to catch the kid.
While watching Home Alone it became so plainly obvious (to me) to see just why Macaulay Culkin would never, ever survive his transition from being a child star into anything that even resembled that of a successful actor as an adult. Never. And, it's true. He wouldn't. 'Cause, believe me, he didn't.
The writing was so clearly written on the wall for Culkin. And it was quite plainly evident even here in Home Alone. I mean, just like child star Shirley Temple, all of Macaulay's appeal and charm rested solely on the pre-packaged concept of her/him being perceived as that little tyke who was just the sweetest of all the "cutie-pies" imaginable.
Like, let's face it, it takes real talent (as well as a certain amount of cuteness, of course) to make it as an adult actor. It does. And talent is something that Culkin seemed to possess so very-very little of (and it showed) once he had grown out of that darling, little "baby" phase of his.
So, unless you're a child, yourself, or an adult who's easily amused by implausible nonsense, then Home Alone's story is just gonna leave you mighty high and dry - 'Cause, hey, other than being completely childish, there sure ain't much joy, merriment, or laughter going on in this one. No way, Jose.
Whether you're a kid or an adult this is a hilarious movie with all sort of hijinks. It's also a classic Christmas movie.
As an adult, I still find this movie hilarious and one of my favorites. I love watching this movie every holiday season and still end up laughing everytime.
This is an amazing classic movie! It is based around when bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home. My favourite part of the movie would have to be the classical scene of when he realizes his family left him behind and he has fun or when he makes all those traps for the robbers, it was hilarious. I would recommend this movie to people of all ages not only because it is a family friendly movie but also because I know everyone will love this movie. This is a classic movie loved by many and if you haven’t watched it what're you doing? Overall, this is a fantastic movie! 5/5

This Home Alone movie was a great movie I watched growing up. I have watched this movie many times because of how great it was. I liked this movie because this movie showed us how smart this kid was and what he was capable against 2 adult criminals. Without giving any spoilers, this movie is about a kid and 2 criminals trying to break into his house, while he is home alone. The boy sets up traps and sends them away. I liked this movie because it showed us each of the perspectives on the criminals while they were going through the house. For these reasons I would give this movie a 5/5 rating

This movie is an old classic that everyone has heard of. Mischievous Kevin got in trouble the night before a family trip to Paris, and as a result he ended up being forgotten at home the next day. With his entire family overseas, he gets excited. The fun does not last long however, since two con men are trying to break into his home and steal his things. He must act quick to stop them from getting in, in the most outrageous and hilarious ways. Kevin exemplifies the true imagination and spirit of any child who would be left alone, with the added bonus of two men trying to break in. The movie is funny, entertaining, and overall fun, while teaching kids to be careful what they wish for. I would rate this movie 4/5 stars and recommend it for family viewing around the holidays.

No matter how many times I watch this movie, it never gets old. Movies like these are worth watching over and over again. The movie was so interesting because Kevin always gets into trouble which makes him the hated one, and then all of a sudden he becomes a hero. My favourite part was when the robbers came into the house and fell for all the traps which Kevin laid out. I was quite surprised Kevin was able to think smartly, shop and do laundry all by himself. I don’t think in real life it’s possible or realistic that your whole family will just forget you when they are going on a trip. I mean you should check and make sure ALL the rooms are safe and sound, right? Overall, this movie is fantastic and like I said, it’s a movie that is worth watching over and over again.

It's slapstick. Entertaining for the little kids, however, adults and older teens will not enjoy
I started watching at within five minutes I had turned it of, it has swears, criticism, and talk of things that aren't good for young children to here. I think this movie is good for older people and personally don't approve of it.
An awesome movie that I watch over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. It's awesome and cool and epic and funny and hilarious and fun for the entire family. 10 out of 10
