Still hilarious after 15 years

  • Jan 2, 2010
I hadn't seen this movie in years, but it's still hilarious. Home Alone is one of those classic comedies that will manage to make you laugh despite yourself. In fact, I'm surprised at how well it has worn the test of time. The movie is filled with great scenes and impeccable timing, sometimes approaching slapstick routines. The humor is good natured, but doesn't shy away from some curse words. Of course, Macaulay Culkin makes it all possible with his adorable acting and wisecracks ("I'm 10 years old, TV's my life"). Most people have probably already seen the first two Home Alone movies. If you have, I invite you to watch them again whenever you feel nostalgic (especially in light of the fact that Hollywood can't make good comedies anymore). If you haven't seen it yet, you're in for a treat.

However, when my teenage and adult years came around, it was time to get more critical since …

Here it is, folks, the only good movie in the Home Alone series.      I initially loved this movie when I first saw it back in the very early 90's, and even after some more critical, analytical thought, it still holds up well.  Despite some feelings of contrivance here and there (especially some logic issues, thus why I now rated it a 3 instead of an initial 4), the characters feel more believable and sincere compared to the second movie (and especially the third and …

Another classic comedy but what you saw in all the commercials is saved all for the end.

A must-watch holiday film that brings every boy's fantasy to life. Daniel Stern gets the crap kicked out of him too.
