If Home Alone had limited itself to the things that might possibly happen to a forgotten 8-year-old, I think I would have liked it more.

This is, perhaps, one of the most memorable child starring roles in movie history.

Forget the cartoonish bad guys, this film is about overcoming fears and taking control of your life.

Looking brave, wise, and yet vulnerable, Culkin is perfect for the role.

The performances are very good, especially by young Culkin and Pesci and Stern.

This holiday contender from John Hughes is too crass, too loud and too violent to be added blithely to Christmas viewing traditions. But it is funny.

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.
