As a rite of passage, Home Alone is a movie that every kid needs to watch. The story begins with the McCallister family going on a Christmas trip to Paris. However, things don’t go exactly as they planned (to say the least). Turns out, they forgot their son Kevin at home! The little kid, though, is having the time of his life watching gangster films, having ice cream for every meal, and turning the place upside down. However, a pair of burglars have caught sight of the home and are set on stealing (even though they suck at it). It’s now up to Kevin to save his home and himself from these (not very skilled) burglars. Rated PG.
