“The rambunctiously funny HOME ALONE is every kid’s anarchical wish come true. What’s happened is that Kevin’s parents have gotten confused in their rush to the airport, leaving the little monster behind, all alone in their great big house to fend for himself. The resourceful Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) wastes no time taking advantage of this dream come true. Within seconds he turns Mom and Dad’s bed into a trampoline, loads up the VCR with naughty stuff and plops down with the sundae to end all sundaes.
“Not that Kevin’s some kind of midget Dennis Hopper; he’s a good kid, really. Just underappreciated and misunderstood. He’s also afraid of his own shadow and, beyond tying his own shoelaces, seemingly incapable of taking care of himself. This is his test, and he rises to the occasion with flying colors, especially when he has to protect home and hearth (not to mention his own tiny, precious butt) from a pair of burglars (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern). ” – Washington Post
