The entire premise of Home Alone is a little whacky.

What family would forget their eight-year-old son back at home when leaving on vacation?

However, Macaulay Culkin, as Kevin, is hilarious and just runs with it.

Joe Pesci (Harry) and Daniel Stern (Marv) complete the slapstick comedy as the unbelievably incompetent burglars who get defeated by Kevin in unique ways.

Home Alone was initially set to be financed and distributed by Warner Bros but ended up being picked up by Fox when the film’s budget grew from 10 to 18 million dollars.

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 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!
