Editors Note
Note Eight year old Kevin MacAllister (Macaulay Culkin) gets lost in the shuffle as his large, upper-middle class suburban family rushes to make a plane that will ferry them off to their Christmas vacation in France; Kevin, having been banished to an attic room as punishment, is subsequently forgotten. At first this is a dream come true, as for the first time in his young life he has no one to answer to but himself, and he takes full advantage of his newfound freedom, eating junk food and watching late-night horror flicks. But when the bumbling Wet Bandits Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern) target his house for a robbery, Kevin must step up to defend his home; he sets a maze of booby traps so elaborate that only an eight year old imagination could concoct them. Ultimately, Kevin learns the importance of family during the holidays in a touching reunion with his clan that is highlighted by the film's amazing original score, which was nominated for an Academy Award.
Plot Summary
Summary Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister is accidentally left home alone by his family while they fly off to France for Christmas vacation. Kevin loves his freedom, delightedly gorging himself on sweets and staying up late -- until he is forced to defend his home from a team of burglers. But Kevin learns that self-defense can be fun too, as he goes about flying to defeat the bumbling thieves.
USA Today "...Macaulay Culkin is the star atop this comedy tree..." 11/16/1990 p.4D
New York Times "...Played with great glee by Macaulay Culkin....Endearing, up-to-the-minute..." 11/16/1990 p.C12
Entertainment Weekly "...A live-action cartoon....[Culkin sets] the movie's overall tone..." -- Rating: B 12/16/1994 pp.80-1
Los Angeles Times "...The ways in which its characters collide and carom off the walls are strictly funny-pages stuff....Macauley Culkin has the kind of crack comic timing that's missing in many an adult star..." 11/16/1990 p.F6
Premiere "[I]t's not just the cartoonish slapstick that made ALONE one of the most successful comedies of all time: It's the sweet heart and courageous tenacity of the kid himself." 04/01/2004 p.54
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] slapstick kiddie fantasy about an abandoned boy and some bumbling burglars." 02/01/2007 p.128
