His mother, Kate O'Hara is extremely nervous almost all the time, fretting throughout the film. Thus, the idea is to go along with the wild premise and enjoy the antics that follow. In real life, he could have just called the police right away; but what fun would that have been? A bevy of violent, slapstick, wince-inducing episodes ensues, resulting in Kevin successfully foiling the bad guys' plans. After a scuffle with his older brother, Buzz, Kevin is sent to the third floor of the house, where he wishes that his family would disappear. A share of the credit for the big success of this film should go to God, who made Maccaulay Culkin's face. Yep, I would still be scared.
Kevin scares off a pizza delivery boy with fake gunfire, just for fun later, he uses the same trick on the burglars. With: Macaulay Culkin Joe Pesci Daniel Stern Catherine O'Hara John Heard John Candy The family of poor little dumped-upon Kevin Macaulay Culkin has rushed off to catch their holiday plane and accidentally left him behind. Here the reader is forced to believe that Kevin is a spoiled brat kid before the encounter with the two crooks. He has an attitude almost expected of a Chris Columbus film from the eighties. There are also iffy role models in the other adult characters.
Macaulay Culkin seems to have no problem carrying most of the film with a wide variety of looks, gestures and expressions--but for my money it's Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci who get the main laughs as the bumbling burglars intent on outwitting the kid's traps. The original is definitely better, and that's thanks to the way Kevin is treated by the family members. Look, I get that this part if important for the plot of the movie, but it was gratuitous and unnecessary. There's a tremendous amount of slapstick violence in this movie, some of which results in very painful-looking injuries. Far from being a perfect movie, it is however okay and fun to watch, entertaining and contains slapstick humor too although I don't like some of the language used. Kevin is hard to like, esp.
For now, we'll leave this on the shelf. It touches our hearts, and tickles our funny bones. The cast is very good! It is a very popular in Japan movie. There was no need to scare the hell out of him - he was just delivering pizza and wasn't after Kevin. But eventually, the young boy has to fight for himself and his home as two wannabe robbers plan to raid his house. It was sweet to see John Candy in it! For more about Home Alone and the Home Alone Blu-ray release, see published by Jeffrey Kauffman on October 8, 2015 where this Blu-ray release scored 3.
The night before they leave the youngest child of the family causes trouble and is sent to bed early. The signature tune is made by John Williams, musician of 'Star Wars', 'Harry Potter' and 'Lord of the Rings'. This inspired Hughes to write a whole new movie. The final battle between Kevin and the burglars involves a large amount of slapstick violence, much of which would be crippling or lethal if it were real. When you start the book, Im half way through the book now, and i really like this book. There are some nice soft parts and here are parts that over-the-top sappy.
Sure, Home Alone may not fit into the traditional canon no girl wistfully wishing for a house on 34th Street but it's one of my favorite Christmas movies next to Die Hard of course. Unfortunately for Kevin, his parents have not just disappeared - they have accidentally left him at home before going to Paris! People really need to give this movie a shot. But he's not decking the halls with tinsel and holly. It still has me constantly laughing 'till this day, I think if you loved the first Home Alone, I'm sure that you'll just naturally love this one as well. And how we must chuckle and raise a cheer over his victoriously cunning booby traps, spread across his vast wood-panelled house, that leave long-suffering Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern permanently on their backsides. There's just one snag-Joe Pesci and Daniel Sterns are back as Harry and Marv and once again, young Kevin must outwit them. Kevin also is shown watching a violent gangster movie that his parents have forbidden him from seeing.
After writing my Hobbit review I re-read my previous reviews, and of course I came across my Home Alone 2 review. But Kevin is going to make sure that they don't mess around with the kids and has set his uncle's abandoned apartment up for a fun house of traps. But not knowing Kevin got left behind finds them self in surprise. He finds an issue of Playboy in a secret stash in his older brother's room but doesn't express much interest in it. I mean, the Wet Bandants are back and they are just as funny as ever! The Wet Bandits, Harry Joe Pesci and Marv Daniel Stern , are on the prowl and have knocked off every other house in Kevin's street.

High fives all around to moms who know what an amazingly awesome thing that is. Without resorting to the all-too-adult double entendres that dominate current family films, this one focuses more on slapstick humor and innocence to convey its story. The film doesn't simply end once Harry and Marv are back in the slammer as there is more plot to it than that. By Home Alone 3, Culkin had grown too old and was recast… Home Alone 4 was made straight-to-tv and really was even a further step down. A lot of the Chuck Jones-esque moments involving the bad guys late in the film offer nicely done sound effects which often offer elements like outsized panning and well placed discrete channelization.
