Reasons why 'Home Alone' is possibly the greatest film ever.

In case you've forgotten, here are some magic moments which help explain why 'Home Alone' is amazing.

Culkin miming 'White Christmas' in the mirror.


The party that never was.

Joe Pesci covered in feathers.



John Candy continuously talking about Polka music.


Culkin saying to the cashier; "Ma'am, I'm eight years old. You think
I would be here alone?" (scrunches face) "I don't think so"


"I'm gonna give you to the count of 10, to get your lying, yellow, no-good keister off my property, before I pump your guts full of lead! "


People continuously crashing into the statue.



Last, but not least - my favourite moment...
"Fuller, go easy on the Pepsi!"

  1. Nice. It's good enough to forgive the 2nd film. Just wish they stopped at two.

  3. Yes, you should definitely dig it out. It gets better every time you watch it. I have loved it ever since I was a kid, it's just SO watchable, SO quotable. Movie magic!

  5. I love that scene with John Candy and Catherine O'Hara in the back of the truck when he's telling her everything will be fine, Candy's absolutely great there.

  7. Ah - great movie! I especially loved the scene, when Kevin was standig in front of the mirror in the morning and singing with the hairdryer and putting his daddy´s aftershave in his face. That was SO CUTE!
    Wish you a great day today! geisslein

  9. I love the scene with this "I'm gonna give you to the count of 10, to get your lying, yellow, no-good keister off my property, before I pump your guts full of lead! " For years I thought it was a real movie. I think its the greatest film because I one day also took my sled down my stairs. It was such a ride.

    I agree with you on the love thing too. I've been there.
