Have you watched Home Alone this holiday season yet?

Asked by pleiades (4892 points ) December 27th, 2012

I used to during the late 1990s into the early 2000s. It seems I’ve forgotten about them! Anyone still doing this religiously every year?

Nope, although I loved that movie as a kid. Loved that creepy old dude with the shovel, he kicked ass.
When I saw the second one, I saw how it was totally the same thing as the first, and by then it had totally lost its charm and magic. How goddamn stupid can those parents be, forgetting their kid again? never saw the third one

No. I haven’t seen it since the first time I saw it. I prefer A Christmas Story or Christmas Vacation.

My brother Justin and I watched both of them; we loved those movies when we were younger, so it was mostly a nostalgic thing, but they’re still great.

No, I haven’t seen it for years!

That movie should be a staple Christmas movie!

No, I can’t remember the last time I saw that movie. I stick with Elf and A Christmas Story.

Not really a fan of Home Alone. Like others have said, A Christmas Story is where its at. 8pm every Chistmas eve that movie goes on my tv and I dont change the channel for the next 24 hours. It’s become the background sound of Christmas for me :P

Seeing this question made me realize I did not see it. I keep an eye out for things like that, didn’t see it listed at all.

I did see “Wonderful Life” and “Christmas Story” and “Miracle on 34th Street” (the original, not the remake.) I am really tired of Christmas Story.

No, but I didn’t get to most of my favorite Christmas movies this year. It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol (with zensky Patrick Stewart), Scrooged or Home for the Holidays (which is actually a Thanksgiving film).
My daughters favorite Christmas movie is Die Hard.

No, they’re watched fairly regularly because the kids love the slapstick humour, just like their dad.
Home Alone is pretty unique amongst franchise movies, in that the third in the series is actually on a par with it’s predecessors.

@ucme I thought the third one was awful.

@livelaughlove21 Glad you felt the need to share that, opinions are like arseholes…

I like that the Chumbawumba song is in the third movie. ^_^

@ucme What an astute observation. Indeed they are.

When I see Mccauley Caulkin I want to kick a baby in the mouth

Symbeline's avatar

Culkin; now just a scruffy bastard.

He looks like the little brother of Willem DaFoe

ucme's avatar

He looks haunted by those Michael Jackson sexathons…wacko must’ve had a massive penis, albeit a plastic one.
