A good Christmas family movie. I liked it. My favourite part is the end when the thugs tried to catch the kid.

While watching Home Alone it became so plainly obvious (to me) to see just why Macaulay Culkin would never, ever survive his transition from being a child star into anything that even resembled that of a successful actor as an adult. Never. And, it's true. He wouldn't. 'Cause, believe me, he didn't.

The writing was so clearly written on the wall for Culkin. And it was quite plainly evident even here in Home Alone. I mean, just like child star Shirley Temple, all of Macaulay's appeal and charm rested solely on the pre-packaged concept of her/him being perceived as that little tyke who was just the sweetest of all the "cutie-pies" imaginable.

Like, let's face it, it takes real talent (as well as a certain amount of cuteness, of course) to make it as an adult actor. It does. And talent is something that Culkin seemed to possess so very-very little of (and it showed) once he had grown out of that darling, little "baby" phase of his.

So, unless you're a child, yourself, or an adult who's easily amused by implausible nonsense, then Home Alone's story is just gonna leave you mighty high and dry - 'Cause, hey, other than being completely childish, there sure ain't much joy, merriment, or laughter going on in this one. No way, Jose.

Whether you're a kid or an adult this is a hilarious movie with all sort of hijinks. It's also a classic Christmas movie.

As an adult, I still find this movie hilarious and one of my favorites. I love watching this movie every holiday season and still end up laughing everytime.

No matter how many times I watch this movie, it never gets old. Movies like these are worth watching over and over again. The movie was so interesting because Kevin always gets into trouble which makes him the hated one, and then all of a sudden he becomes a hero. My favourite part was when the robbers came into the house and fell for all the traps which Kevin laid out. I was quite surprised Kevin was able to think smartly, shop and do laundry all by himself. I don’t think in real life it’s possible or realistic that your whole family will just forget you when they are going on a trip. I mean you should check and make sure ALL the rooms are safe and sound, right? Overall, this movie is fantastic and like I said, it’s a movie that is worth watching over and over again.

The McCallister family is pretty big, and that might cause some problems. The family plans to go on vacation during Christmas time. The day before their departure, Kevin McCallister seems to be causing some trouble as he argues with his brother. The next day, the whole family is rushing to leave as they all slept in. They hurry out the door and unfortunately, they forget Kevin! Kevin realizes that he is home alone. This means he has the house all to himself and he can do what he wants. But perhaps being home alone isn’t so good after all. Kevin realizes that although he may be alone inside the house, there may be others with not-so-good intentions waiting outside.

It's slapstick. Entertaining for the little kids, however, adults and older teens will not enjoy

I started watching at within five minutes I had turned it of, it has swears, criticism, and talk of things that aren't good for young children to here. I think this movie is good for older people and personally don't approve of it.

After getting into an argument with his older brother Buzz, he is sent to the third floor bedroom of the house, where he wishes his family would disappear. During the night, a power outage resets the alarm clocks and causes the family to oversleep. In the confusion and rush to reach the airport on time, Kevin is left behind and the family does not realize it until they are already airborne. Once in Paris, his mother and father desperately try to book a flight home.
