When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O'Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home.

Classic holiday film. There is enough in it to keep adults and kids entertained. It was written by John Hughes who in the 80s and early 90s wrote many classic comedy films. It is just a good slapstick comedy and will put you in the Christmas mood. A must see every Christmas.December 9th, 2013 · Details
