    Synopsis


    Home Alone
    Home Alone is the highly successful and beloved family comedy about a young boy named Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) who is accidentally left behind when his family takes off for a vacation in France over the holiday season. Once he realizes they've left him "home alone," he learns to fend for himself and, eventually has to protect his house against two bumbling burglars (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) who are planning to rob every house in Kevin's suburban Chicago neighborhood. Though the film's slapstick ending may be somewhat violent, Culkin's charming presence helped the film become one of the most successful ever at the time of its release. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

      Still good BUT over hyped film

      I have always enjoyed this film. 20 years later I still say it was over hyped when released & became the hit it did. And, yes the character Kevin was acting bad. Any parent would have grounded him at least. The slap stick comedy was the hit here. Did take enough time to get to the funny parts. COURSE with this large group no 1 thought to set another clock to ensure they got up in time. BUT that would not have lead to the film. Just to point out these things. PUT the passports, tickets in a safe place not on a counter to get milk spilled on them. We do get the points of the film about family. The build to the story on the neighbor after the story Buzz told about him that he was just a lonely man who missed his family. Good to see the late John Candy in here after the 1989 hit Uncle Buck where he & Culkin worked together there. There are plenty of extras on this DVD. BUT, MY COMPLAINT & I HAVE HAD THIS COMPLAINT FOR SOME TIME NOW. They used the cheap, intentional holes in them plastic DVD case. I HATE these. Cheap, can damage your DVD so you can go out & buy another. No chapter search list. You will enjoy the film & the extras here JUST BE CAREFUL WHEN STORING THE DVD WITH THE CHEAP PLASTIC CASE WITH INTENTIONAL HOLES IN IT.

      It has been many years since I have seen Home Alone. The only copy I ever owned was the VHS version that I received as a kid. Since it was the 25th Anniversary I figure it would be a good time to relive the laughs of this great movie. The movie still holds the test of time as it still garnered laughs throughout even though I remembered what was coming. The quality of the film in HD is quite good. One of the reasons I still buy discs instead of going all digital is that I love all the special features and audio commentaries that come with the discs. This disc is packed with special features. The downside is that the special features are pretty short. I was left wanting more. What was there was good and insightful. Pick up this disc and share it with your kids if they haven't seen it. This is a classic film that is worth picking up.

      A Modern Holiday Classic Looks Great on Blu-Ray

      If you're a millennial there's a good chance the first Christmas movie you saw in theatres was Home Alone. The combination of writer John Hughes, director Chris Columbus and a great cast (Catherine O'Hara as the mom, Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern as the crooks, and the biggest child actor of all, Macauley Culkin) produced an outrageous movie that was both very funny but had a lot of heart. It's hard to believe that it's now 25 years old and Culkin is now old enough to run for President, but the film has held up pretty well, looks great on Blu-ray, and features some good extras, including an audio commentary with Columbus and Culkin. It's been on sale recently, so it's a great bargain

      Classic family Christmas movie

      Home Alone is a good-natured, albeit unrealistic, family film that both kids and adults will enjoy if they're OK with the violence, profanity, and disrespectful behavior within the family. Its endearing story and a charming performance by Culkin make it a standout among the usual holiday movie fare. Without resorting to the all-too-adult double entendres that dominate current family films, this one focuses more on slapstick humor and innocence to convey its story. That said, that reliance on slapstick humor does means it's chock full of semirealistic violence. It's not for the weak-stomached and definitely requires some major suspension of disbelief.

      My family watched a special sneak preview of Home Alone before it came to theaters in late 1990. I wasn't much older than Maculkin Pulkin was in this movie then and something about it has always rang true for me since. The wishing away of your annoying family. The mystery of the strange old neighborhood man. The terror of the basement. How young, alone Kevin McAllister confronts his fears and beats them (and the Wet Bandits, too!) is something every young child should watch around Christmas time. A true modern classic.

      Home Alone on Blu-Ray/DVD combo, Yeah Baby.

      Well, there is not too much to say about Home Alone, I think just about everyone on the planet has seen it. I think it is one of the best holiday movies around. I watch it every year at least once. I got it on sale for $8.00, can't beat that. I have not watched the Blu-Ray yet as I have watched it on TV this year already. I cannot review the Blu-Ray picture quality or the extras if there is any. However, I jumped at the chance to own the Blu-Ray-dvd combo pack for that price.

      High Definition Classic

      The Blu-ray transfer of this John Hughes Christmas favorite isn't much of an improvement over the Widescreen DVD. It seems to be produced from the same master so don't expect it to be brighter, more colorful or much sharper, though it has a bevy of extra content. This edition includes a DVD copy of the movie as well as a code for the digital copy. So, all in all it's worth paying a couple of bucks more than the standard DVD edition.

      You've probably already seen this Christmas classic, so I won't comment on the movie itself. The video transfer is very good, especially for a an early-90's movie. As for audio, the dialog is clear, the score is balanced, and the surround sound elements are done well. This is definitely the best Home Alone has ever looked or sounded. If you're looking to purchase this movie for the first time or upgrading your VHS or DVD copy, you won't be disappointed.
