Review of Home Alone   

Comedy Genre Genius

I first viewed this classic in 96, and forever improved my xmas film guide

The film revolves around Kevin (Macaulay Culkin)and his family who are set on a Christmas vacation to France. The trip, however, looses appeal with Kevin, who wishes for his family to simply disappear. When the family unwittingly leave him behind, he is delighted with spending the festival season at his own lesiure. Soon enough Kevin runs into trouble as he is left to defend his house from two bumbling burglers Harry and Marv, leaving Kevin and his ready made traps to foil their plans at every curve with fine slastick hilarity.

Easily one of John Hughes best films to date, Home Alone perfectly encapsulates the Christmas spirit from a child's perspective thoughout the film. While Kevins misleading charm allows you to connect with him, you cannot help but pity the burglers (Pesci and Stern) with the brutal buffoonery accounting for a large part of the humour.

Scenes including the 'snakes' conversation and many quote classics makes it a must over christmas, providing PG rated family entertainment deserving the full 5 stars.
