About the Movie

Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) has become the man of the house, overnight! Accidentally left behind when his family rushes off on a Christmas vacation, Kevin gets busy decorating the house for the holidays. But he's not decking the halls with tinsel and holly. Two bumbling burglars are trying to break in, and Kevin's rigging a bewildering battery of booby traps to welcome them!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: [A] surprisingly charming film, which may be the first Christmas black comedy for children. – Caryn James, New York Times, Jul 26, 2011

Rotten: The movie devolves into an egregious Three Stooges painfest: We're meant to giggle and clap along with Kevin as the crooks get their heads singed with blowtorches and walk barefoot on glass. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 26, 2011

Fresh: Pic boasts wonderful casting, with Culkin a delight as funny, resilient Kevin, and O'Hara bringing a snappy, zesty energy to the role of mom. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 26, 2011

Rotten: If Home Alone had limited itself to the things that might possibly happen to a forgotten 8-year-old, I think I would have liked it more. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 26, 2011

I have loved Home Alone ever since I first saw it when I was younger. It is a true Christmas Classic. I watch this movie every year several times. There were four Home Alone movies that were made, however none can ever top the original! If you haven't already seen this movie, buy it. Worth every penny!

Worth the wait

Thank you Itunes for sending this christmas package to us. This is possibly the best christmas film of all time.

Home Alone 10/10

PS [Yes] for Home Alone [No] for Home Alone 3

'Home Alone' never gets old!

No matter how old you are, the movie will age with you. It's a fantastic holiday movie for anyone who's in doubt of the slew of movies which have been released during this holiday period!

This is a MUST watch for everyone! Buy it!! :)
