I would love to watch these movies again just for laughs

Have you turned on your television in the last month?


For real, I saw either HA1 or HA2 at least 8 times last week on AMC story notes. I literally caught at least 30 min of each airing every night last week.

Considering he got paid $8 million for HA2 before he even hit puberty, I would assume Mr. Culkin's agent wouldn't have been stupid enough to leave that out of his contract.

Laughed my arse off at the Marv/bricks part

Let's be honest. Kevin's parents are shitty and Kevin himself is a terrorist.

Did anyone notice it looked like the McCallister's had a station wagon in the garage? You telling me with the kind of bank they had and they drive a station wagon...WTF

I'm guessing that's Uncle Frank's car.

Stations wagons weren't a more common mode of transportation, even among the upper class, in 1990 American society?

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.


The way he shouts "Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!!!! Shoplifter!!!!" is still odd to me after 26 years and I chuckle every time.

Introduced my 3 year old to these movies. She loves them.

Seriously though, if you pay attention, both of these moves are filled with the worst people on the face of Planet Earth. In HA, outside of Kevin, Old Man Marley, and John Candy, every single character in that movie is a horrible human being.
All of Kevins siblings are terrible. His Uncle and Aunt. His parents. Mom calls the police station? Cops are terrible. The Pizza delivery driver that keeps running over their statue? Terrible. The bitch in the checkout line. The people that own the store that Kevin steals the toothbrush from? How dare he ask a question about a hygiene product. Even that shitty Santa is a terrible human. A goddamned 8 year old just came up alone and told you he wants his family back, and you're just like "Let me give you a Tic Tac."

Honestly, Marv may be one of the morally less reprehensible characters in the franchise.

It just doesn't quite feel like it's "the holidays" until this thread gets bumped again.

Starting to think that you never had anything written about these movies and you just started this thread to let other posters write it for you.

Anyone mentioned why the bandits were so concerned with getting the Polaroids of them robbing Duncans? They were already serving probably 15 years for the first string and are facing an addtl 5-10 for the escape charges let alone their role in the prison riot. also, it's not like they can live out in the open anyway after that high profile escape, so the knowledge that they did the Duncan heist doesn't ruin their lives on easy Street or anything.

I got up to about 7 pages of scattered notes, but was being one upped at every turn by posters (including myself explaining things on my notes) to where it almost seemed like a moot point of analyzing this shite for 20 pages.

Well they had no reason to believe that the Wet Bandits were dumb enough to flee to the most densely and heavily populated city in the United States, to where people would be on the look out for them after that point.

If Kevin had your attitude, Harry would have murdered him on day 1.

Nah, it only took switching on a light switch to scare off Harry after Day 1.
