Lets' also not forget Kevin was a little shithead himself. As a kid I would literally cringe when he's at the stair landing and says to his mom "I am upstairs, dummy". I would never even IMAGINE saying something like that to my mother.

Considering the fact that literally everyone had just taken turns at Kevin by beating up and dogging on him, his response was justified and he used a word a little too nice. Its easy to see why Kevin is the way he is, and thats because his family if full of sadistic, egotistical frickheads who merely enjoy beating and demeaning the weakest of the pack. I guarentee that scene had gone on for weeks prior to this to where Kevin reached his breaking point.

She asks where his mother and father are. Not a friendly, "You doin' some shopping by yourself today?" No, it's blatantly asking where in the frick are your parents you stupid fricking kid. Then she asks about brothers and sisters. Let's get to the kicker: She asks him where he lives. Who in the frick is this lady to ask him where Kevin lives? You're a cashier at a grocery store, not a special ops military unit leader finding information on a suspected terrorist. Okay, so he's finally done with the interrogation and he has to walk him with groceries in the cold. Not only does the grocery store company hire employees with atrocious customer service skills, but they order their plastic bags from a cheap vendor. Kevin should have made a call to the Better Business Bureau.
I was thinking the same thing watching this. I was about 13 when this came out and I'm thinking "Damn bitch, shut up and take the money!" I went to stores alone all the time as a kid and the people were always nice.

Where do I live? WTF? Hello! Stranger danger!!! Don't frick with me bitch!

Kevin is also a sheltered boy. He gets scared of the furnace in the basement and also has to close his eyes while watching Angels With Filthy Souls and scream for his mother.

It wouldn't shock me if Kevin's entire family was in on it on scaring the shite out of Kevin as much as possible and telling him the furnace is a death machine out to kill.

most interesting character of Home Alone 1=Jimmy. he is given the task of apprehending Kevin after the little shite jacks a toothbrush from his store.

he really is the all american kid. nicely combed hair, well dressesd, and sweeping up the store like a champ. too bad he can't run down a 9 year old. whats worse is he forces the elderly cop to run down Kevin on the frozen lake.

Jimmy probably went on to raise a perfect family and get a well paying job. not being able to catch McCallister would probably be his only regret.

Hmmm, you seem to be a Kevin apologist. Had some older siblings didn't you.

I'm the eldest actually, but I only had one sibling to where neither of us could gang up on the other. It just seems as if the whole family just gangs up on him and hates him. I mean at least make one sibling, cousin, or adult like him.... but then there wouldn't be a plot if they didn't all bully him around.

Can one say that being Home alone did not teach Kevin to become responsible and actually take responsibility for his own actions

It did teach him to only trust in himself and to frick trusting others. Kevin will turn into a horrible person as well, but I can fathom why he would become that. The only reason the family as acting nice to him at the end is so he won't call New Channel 5 on them. But by the time the second one arrives, they're back to the same old shite with them ganging up on Kevin once more.

They never grew as a family.

I have always been hoping for a Home Alone 3 that is more like a Saw chapter, where he lures all his relatives into death trap after death trap. Would be a great film.

Nah. Jimmy parlayed a successful high school football career into a local life insurance salesmen gig. Decent money but nothing great. He tried college out but it wasn't for him. Little fish in a big pond syndrome doomed him.

He lives in a sexless marriage and he has no emotional connection to his children.

He's a functioning alcoholic. He has it under control most days but feelings of failure send him on multi day benders. When it's not the booze interfering with Jimmy's life, it's his sex addiction. What was once justified because of boredom has become a full blown problem. He's tried counseling but he falls back in to old habits. His wife will no longer allow a computer in the home due to the credit card bills Jimmy ran up buying fetish porn on the internet.

I not only had the Talkboy, but the Talkboy pen. I remember bringing it to school and trying to sell it because it was a piece of shite. No buyers. The battery in the pen went dead after a few weeks and the pen ran out of ink not too long after that. Bull shite products.

I think the wet bandits are a prime example of the problems with the prison system. Look at their recidivism rate, as soon as they get out of jail they're out on another caper. Marve especially, he's a follower, but you can sense that he has a conscience.

I'm a bit unclear as to the whole family arrangement. Forgive me as it has been awhile, but how large is Kevin's immediate family? We all remember the big debacle with the spilt milk and pizza dinner scene, but of all those kids how many siblings are his? I know Buzz lives in the house, but is it ever confirmed that he is in fact, Kevin's brother? Again, I'm sure all of this is stated somewhere and I apologize for the potentially stupid question, but it has been a while for me.

Pretty sure Buzz is comitting incest. Take a look at the "Buzz's girlfriend WOOF!" picture. Pretty much Buzz in a dress. There are deep dark secrets this family is hiding, Kevin knows about them. Hence, why he's scared to death of a stupid furnace. His parents (and Buzz too probably) have threatened to throw his arse in there if he talks. Why on earth would he NOT go straight to a police station when found out he was alone... The secrets!

edit: He wasn't afraid of the real cop that came to the door or thought he was a fake cop... He knew that if he let that cop in the secrets would eventually get exposed and he'd be furnace fodder. This is also why he went to great links to try and keep the wet bandits out and then keep them preoccupied when they were in the house.
