It should not be this difficult to get a copy of a popular 25 year old film. This is the second time I've tried to get this movie in the past month - first time around, I got (only) Home Alone 2 from a page advertising a 2-disc set of HA and HA2. Though at least that one was a US copy, and included a code valid in the US.
In a nutshell, this film is fairly versatile and switches gears fairly often. The comedic look at a child's life without parents and rules, contrasts the emotional (and on occasion awkward) familial subplots.
That being said I wouldn't plop just any old kid in front of this film. So I completely agree with it's PG rating.
-good picture quality
-doesn't freeze if you leave DVD on pause or standby after watching DVD and walking away for a bit
-The only con is that the DVD didn't contain the extras and behind the scenes shoots that are always enjoyable to watch. Considering the price for this DVD though, I still think you get your dollars worth.
Overall: I would recommend this product if you're looking for a great Christmas classic that the whole family can enjoy. The price is great for what you get.
The PG rating is well-deserved. There are a few instances of some mildly harsh language and imagery that would not be appropriate for young children (<10) to view without an adult there to explain some things. The first 10 minutes of the film is much more unsettling than funny. It's also important to remind them that, even though this is a live-action film, the interactions between Kevin and the "Wet Bandits" are not very realistic and that there would be some very real dangers involved in trying to imitate Kevin's actions.
Otherwise, this is a great family film and perfect for enjoying around Christmastime. There is a reason this was a box-office blockbuster when it was in theaters. It's one every kid in North America should see at some point in their life.
