    Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) has become the man of the house, overnight! Accidentally left behind when his family rushes off on a Christmas vacation, Kevin gets busy decorating the house for the holidays. But he's not decking the halls with tinsel and holly. Two bumbling burglars are trying to break in, and Kevin's rigging a bewildering battery of booby traps to welcome them!

    If you like to laugh until you cry get this movie and the sequel, I guarantee you will cry!
    Tracy (tlecrone@greenapple.com)
    Culkin is endearing as Kevin, and Joe Pesci is great as one of the burglars.

    On November 21st, 2006, 20th Century Fox released Home Alone - Family Fun Edition. This DVD edition is the long awaited special edition to one of cinemas most adored Christmas films. This edition offers a hefty amount of extra goodies...such as over 30 minutes of deleted scenes, on the set featurettes, new interviews, and a brand new commentary track featuring director Chris Columbus & Macaulay Culkin. I have to say unlike most commentary tracks, this one is actully very informative and very fun. Macaulay and Chris seem to have so much fun watching the film. This edition like the first one is presented in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. I read somewhere that the video and audio is updated too, I cannot confirm if it is or not but I read that. If you own the previous edition of this film, it is definately worth your money to update to this. The special features alone warrant a double dip. Also for the hold outs not wanting to buy the film til it got a special edition, well here it is. I would recommend this edition to anyone wanting to own this classic film on DVD.

    Finally Fox studios came to their senses to re-release a childhood classic. Now this re-release does have a substanial amount of bonus features including 4 behind the scenes feature, deleted scenes, 3 trailers, and some trivia games but the icing on the cake is the Christopher Columbus and Macaulay Culkin Commentary. Its good to know that Macaulay Culkin being the highest paid child star back then in the early 90's and still to this date, he is humble enough to go back to his childhood memories. Deff worth the upgrade if you own the previous release..a true classic...

    This movie was a favorite amongst many when it first came out in 1990, and more than a decade later, this movie *still* remains a classic, and will continue to be a classic for many more years to come.

    The story is simple, really: young Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) is the underdog of the family; always getting picked on by his older siblings, and feeling like an outcast. One day, he gets into it with his older brother, and Kevin ends up being punished. During his punishment, he wishes that he could spend a christmas by himself without any of his family members. Wouldn't you know it - due to his family's carelessness, they accidently leave Kevin home on their way to the airport (to fly to Paris for Christmas vacation.)

    And from there, the fun begins. While Kevin is home by himself, two bumbling, nincompoop burglars (played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) known as the "Wet Bandits," set their sites on Kevin's house. When Kevin figures this out, he sets the house up with all sorts of tricks and traps, to out-maneuver these two clowns. And it's *hilarious* (listening to Daniel Stern's agonized wails -- as if he were castrated -- leaves me gasping for breath!) Anytime I watch this movie, these scenes in general have a way of bringing out the devilishly-maniacal, mischievous kid in me (and no doubt, many other viewers as well.) Of course, the movie isn't all about brash, goofy slapstick; there are some moving moments scattered throughout the film (particularly when Kevin befriends an old man - who is feared throughout the neighborhood - who teaches Kevin a few things about life, as well as receiving a little bit of advice from young Kevin along the way.

    The first edition of this dvd was ok but lacked in the special features area and dvd quality. Thankfully the Family Fun edition has been released and the quality is excellent. This new edition has 5.1 sound and the picture quality is so much more crisper. This dvd is loaded with special features. It's hard to believe that Home Alone came out more than 16 years ago and has stood the test of time and is destined to be a holiday classic. Great fun movie...

    Remember the first time you laughed your head off the first time you saw a little boy scream from the burn off aftershave in the morning? Or when you heard the clank of paint cans hitting the heads of two rotten villains? Relive all those wonderful moments in this hilarious gift set! From Kevin's offensive on two house burglars to his dastard adventures through the Big Apple, you won't want to miss this collection of over-the-top, slapstick humor. These tapes make great gifts for the kiddies, or any nostalgic fan. I recommend this five-star collection for anyone wanting a good time watching a set of genuinely fun movies.

    Even a cynical show like "Seinfield" recognized the warm-hearted charms of "Home Alone."
    In November 1990, "Home Alone" entered movie theaters with little fanfare. Most movie critics dismissed it as just another John Hughes' produced lightweight comedy, which would be quickly forgotten. However, when "Home Alone" finally left theaters months later it was as one of the all time box office champs. How did this happen? Intitially, audience good word of mouth kept the box office receipts rising. Eventually, the studio, realizing it had monster hit on its hands, finally threw its promotional weight behind the movie. As a result, "Home Alone" was the #1 movie for an unbelievable 12 weeks!
    Eight year old Kevin McAllister (Macauley Culkin) is fed up with being picked on by his older siblings and then being either ignored or scolded by his parents. Things really get out of hand when his home is overrun by his Uncle Frank's family in prepartion of a joint family trip to Paris for the Christmas holidays. Kevin, sick of being ignored by everyone, finally loses his temper, throws a fit, and, as a punishment, is sent to the attic to sleep by himself. Angered by the injustice of his punishment, Kevin tells his mother (Catherine O'Hara) that he hoped that he would never see his family again! Later, he sullenly wishes that his family would just "disappear."
    The next morning Kevin awakes to discover that his family has disappeared and he is alone in his family's big house. Of course, Kevin's family really didn't really disappear, but due to a number of chaotic circumstances they forget about him until they are already on the flight to Paris. With the phone lines down and all the neighbors out of town, Kevin's family has no way of contacting him.

    Optimized for Widescreen?
    Yes, it is anamorphic (at least according to a review I read). I didn't buy the previous version because it wasn't anamorphic, and so I'm going to get this one.

    Voice Over?
    I'm guessing that whoever said that didn't know how to turn the commentary track off, and automatically thought that the voiceover was forced.
