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

How to Burglar-Proof Your Home: The Stunts of Home Alone
I was simply blown away by how warm, rich and robust the color and lighting in this 4K UHD disc release of Home Alone was. Additionally, the fine grain structure and fullness of the image made everything seem more solid, larger than life, and with more depth than ever before.
Couldn't ask for better. Some of the finest work on a Fox classic release via Disney. Don't hesitate to have this one in your library for Christmas. A huge upgrade over previous formats and masters.
Home alone has to be one of the best and funniest films ever made! for 3 reasons.
A. Its a Family Christmas Movie with Macaulay Culkin!
2. Angels with Filthy souls is a hilarious scene
D. 20th Century Fox made this film!
-That's how Buzz counts to 3
I genuinely enjoy Home Alone because of its unique plot and the character development that takes place especially with Kevin for in the beginning he starts off as a whiny, ungrateful, and a very dependent child an example of this is when he is clueless on how to pack for the trip and when he said that he doesn’t want to see his family he ends up being very smart with his traps and independent as well as grateful to see his family I think this plot is an eye opener for people who are materialistic and it shows the the true meaning of Christmas (for this who celebrate it) is family. The humor in this is incredible as well since it’s a holiday movie that gets played about twice a year (when I watch it with my family and when I watch it alone) the jokes never get old. Considering that Macaulay Culkin was around 9 or 10 years old when filming his performance in this is really great for his age so was the rest of the casts. With that being said I give this movie a 4.5 it’s not a four because it’s better than that idk how to explain it but it’s also not a five for me.
It is so hard to believe this movie is 30 years old now! I purchased Home Alone so my 10 year old grandson and I could watch from home on my digital account. He laughed so hard at this Christmas Classic and so did I. It has been a long time since I sat down to watch the movie and boy for a 30 year old movie it really was still appropriate in most every way. Do yourself and someone else the favor and pick this one up for the Holidays for lots of family fun!
I would recommend this to a friend

Childhood favorite in 4k!

This is my must see Christmas movie every year. I grew up watching this movie on VHS all the way up to blu ray. So when this movie came out in 4k it was a must buy. This movie looks fantastic in 4k! A big difference from blu ray, highly recommend!
What a great holiday classic movie now in brilliant 4K DVD with extra features. I have shared with family and friends to get this movie to enjoy and to find it here so thank you BestBuy for providing this movie and quality features on a metal book cover as well. A truly neat way to enjoy this classic all time movie once more again!
Item was ready for pickup the dame day.
About the movie: well what has not been said. Watched the movie in theaters with my family and loved it. Saw it after Christmas that year and the theater was still full. Oh, and go ahead and get the soundtrack to along with the movie; like RC and moon pies!
