  • 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.

    "...Macaulay Culkin is the star atop this comedy tree..."
    USA Today

    "...Played with great glee by Macaulay Culkin....Endearing, up-to-the-minute..."
    New York Times

    "...A live-action cartoon....[Culkin sets] the movie's overall tone..." -- Rating: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...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..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[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."
    Premiere

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] slapstick kiddie fantasy about an abandoned boy and some bumbling burglars."
