Home Alone, the timeless Christmas classic, is a little...out there. Also Macaulay Culkin has the best laugh on Earth. In this review I discuss everything wrong with Home Alone as well as some of my favorite scenes.

  • I think they used a boy dressed as a girl so they werent insulting someones (a young child's) natural appearance directly, it becomes more of a "haha boy dressed as girl" joke which is meh tier but better than being like "hey little girl your face is too ugly to be anyones girlfriend"

  • Honestly I’m really surprised Kevin wasn’t shitting himself tbh, considering he’s 8 and spends like 3 days by himself. I dunno if it’s just me but when I was 10-11 my dad went outside for like 10 mins in the dark and I freaked the fuck out, tried to call my nan (his mum) and say he’d just walked off into the dark and got murdered and instead accidentally called my mum’s friend (they have the same names). And another time was when I was like 9-11 or so my mum and dad had driven and gone to the shops to get some stuff near christmas time and it felt like they’d been gone for ages, but in reality it was probably like 30 mins at best, I couldn’t get out because the doors were locked, I was convinced they had been hit by a car on the way in and I was gonna have to take care of myself. Then they came back and saw me lying down with two dolls next to me pretending I was having a sleepover. Basically what I’m saying is, kids who are left on their own for prolonged periods of time are gonna get a bit scared and honestly it’s kinda weird (but understandable) that he wasn’t tbh

  • As a late 90s kid, I can't personally speak to what it was like before 9/11, but it sounded like a much more chill time in general. I will say that this kind of attitude towards kids is what my parents grew up with in the 70s and 80s; my mom talks about how she and all the kids in her neighborhood would just go hang out at a couple's house (they had no kids) all the time after school and they'd also jump onto the back of some dude's pickup truck to go to a park and also maybe get an ICEE for all of them to share. John Mulaney talks about how he always acted like an adult as a kid and just go places alone to buy things or eat out. Heck, when I was growing up, spanking your kids was still pretty acceptable (though my parents didn't do it). tldr: a bunch of adults' reactions to Kevin in this movie could've still been totally normal then. we're looking back at it with new (and honestly better) mindsets, expecting it to be normal (since that's how it felt when we first watched it)

  • I totally agree that most plot devices and occurrences in the movie are completely nonsensical. However, isn't humor by definition the recognition of nonsense in any given situation (be it movies or real life)? Not a single joke would have worked if only logic would have been used. Nobody would laugh seeing the bandits running down the stairs in the zipline scene. Part of the stuff that made me laugh as a kid, made my parents laugh and still makes me laugh today, are the ridiculous choices the bandits and Kevin make; such as climbing down the zipline as a couple of imbeciles. Shooting a BB into someone's crotch is hilarious as a concept, so are paint cans being swung over a balistrade. So I enjoyed this fun tirade over the nonsense of it all, I even agree with the points made. But the nonsense is the point of comedy. If Kevin would have used cold logic in each scenario, as if an autistic 70-year old scientist, doing only the most logical proper thing, it would take the joke out of the joke. The observation of Kevin being on his own, all the way across town, shopping tooth brushes and food; that was awesome to me, as I was the exact same age as Kevin at the time, this was cool. 95% of the time I went places (when yonger than age 12), I was accompanied by a grown-up or at least a few friends. However, there were instances, I ran errants for my folks, even at age 8, even after dark (not late at night of course). I remember countless times, when my parents gave me money to get take-away food, such as pizza, fries, Chinese food. Ordering out via phone was not super common in the early nineties, internet and apps did not even exist at all, I used to actually go places to order and wait for take-out and bring it home. This made me feel like a big responsible man at age 8, that I was able to do that. So Kevin being on his own running a quick errant, is not that weird, not in that time period. Today everybody is afraid of rapists around every corner and kid snatchers, most people nowadays do not even marry or want kids anymore. Life was a lot simpler then. Being on the town as even a young kid, doing errands, was not that weird at the time, but cool though, to be a big boy.

  • To be honest the whole not noticing Kevin was not there it's not that hard, my family once leaved me and my cousin behind because they forgot, we were doing a trip to a waterpark some hours away, but we were a lot of people (like 50 if I'm not wrong) and in the rush we just told our parents we'll go get some candy for the trip and once we came back almost everyone was gone xD only one uncle and an aunt were left because she had to use the bathroom and was the last in line to do so. They take us with them and once at the waterpark we were ooking everywhere for our parents but they weren't there either. We cried and some hours later they appaeared because halfway the route they noticed we were gone and went back to check for us to see we were gone. It was difficult because cellphones weren't too much of thing and only like 4 people had one, they called from the house to once of them and realized we were already at the waterpark, that was crazy.

  • I think how he's treated by his family is one of those clever things you never notice as a kid, but you pick up on it as an adult. The first time I saw it, I just thought Kevin was some spoiled little attention-seeking better-than-you Whiney McTightpants who got lucky (we all wanted the house to ourselves at some point). But as I got older, I found out "Why?". Even with all of the pseudo-realistic silliness (and loveable goof-headed robbers), the scenes with the family are surprisingly realistic. As a kid, I don't think I'd end up valuing human life as much as I do today without this movie (among a lot of other things, but like learning a new language, stuff like this sticks better when you're young). As a kid, it taught me to appreciate my family "just a little more than usual" (or I'll end up like Kevin the Useless Disease), and as an adult, it taught me to never treat anybody in my family like they don't exist (because if you're a rational person, only then will you realise that being truly alone is a nightmare). Home Alone is one of those rare movies that's both overrated, and underrated at the same time. If you're born after 2000 (and you've never seen it), I want you to make plans for your next Movie Night with a can of Sugar-Free Pop and some Pop-Corn. There's a reason why people call it "timeless".
