Home Alone

Home Alone is a 1990 Christmas comedy starring Macaulay Culkin as the 8-year old boy who accidentally gets left behind when the large extended family heads off to Paris in a rush. I had only seen this once, years ago, and The Younger Son had never seen it. We think it's cute enough, but it won't become an annual must-see.


DVD Talk says, "everyone involved with the film seemed to be on the top of their game". BBC concludes:
This is a film which manages to capture some of the best qualities of Christmas in a surprisingly enjoyable format and will provide the whole family with large quantities of festive spirit.
EW gives it a "D". Roger Ebert likes Culkin's acting but not much else. It gets a score of 54% at Rotten Tomatoes.
