Home Alone (1990)

Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister accidentally gets left behind by his family as they embark on their Christmas vacation and must defend himself against two Grinches.  On Christmas Eve, he rigs his family's sweet pad with creative, and sometimes deadly, booby traps in hopes of catching The Wet Bandits.   While waiting in line for Home Alone, I knew what it must of felt like for moviegoers when Jaws (1975) was released.  The line was around the block.  The audience went wild.  I had yet to have a movie going experience like it.   Home Alone was a huge box office success and Macaulay Culkin warmed the hearts of millions, even those with one the size of Uncle Frank's.
