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

Fresh: Home Alone delivers enough laughs. – Peter Rainer, Los Angeles Times, Nov 10, 2017
