The film, written and produced by John Hughes, was conceived while he prepared to go on vacation. He said: “I was going away on vacation and making a list of everything I didn’t want to forget. I thought, ‘well, I’d better not forget my kids.’ Then I thought, ‘what if I left my 10-year-old son at home? What would he do?”
Home Alone was initially set to be financed and distributed by Warner Bros but ended up being picked up by Fox, when the budget of the film grew from 10 to 18 million dollars. It paid off though because Home Alone grossed $285.8 million in the United States and Canada. Its worldwide total revenue was $476.7 million. Home Alone was the number-one film at the box office for 12 consecutive weeks and launched a franchise of films.
The movie encountered some casting and filming problems. It almost lost Daniel Stern because of an increase in the filming schedule, but they were able to get him back. Culkin could only film until 10 pm because he was so young, and Pesci wanted to start later in the day so he could play golf.
There was also some annoyance from Pesci and Stern because they couldn’t curse on set. Regardless of the struggles, Home Alone is still a holiday tradition for many, and it is funny every time you re-watch it!
