Home Alone (1990) is a holiday classic starring Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister, a boy whose family leaves him behind accidentally when they fly to France for the holiday. He is left to fend for himself and defend the home against a pair of comic burglars. Hijinks and hilarity ensue!
Written by John Hughes and directed by Chris Columbus, the film is very much geared toward family audiences, but what is Christmas if not a time for the family? The movie spawned a slew of sequels, none of which truly capture the magic of the first, but all of which offer some chuckles. Maybe I’m nostalgic because this movie came out the year of my birth, but I think it’s a Christmas winner!
