Member Picks: Home Alone
Two bungling burglars get more than they bargained for in this festive family favourite.
Dir Chris Columbus
With Macaulay Culkin, Catherine O’Hara, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern
As the McCallister family rush to catch their Christmas holiday flight they leave behind young Kevin. A couple of crooks target the family’s supposedly empty home – but haven’t reckoned on the welcome the youngster has in store for them. Comedy genius John Hughes wrote and produced this classic, which became the highest grossing live-action comedy at the time of its release in the US.
‘Home Alone delivers a sackfull of laughs for the whole family, and offers a nostalgic reminder to always be careful what you wish for!’
