Megan McCallister: You’re not at all worried that something might happen to Kevin?
Buzz McCallister: No, for three reasons: A, I’m not that lucky. Two, we use smoke detectors and D, we live on the most boring street in the whole United States of America, where nothing even remotely dangerous will ever happen. Period.
The first of three films, Home Alone, stands as an independent film that was a true comedy. The second film in the series wasn’t as fun and innocent. The film was directed by John Hughes who directed many films of the 80’s. Having Macaulay Culkin star in the film was genius, he just shouldn’t have done any other movies. That is just my opinion.
Here is the main plot of the film…When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O’Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home.
Its a fun film, it gives us another good role with John Candy in the film.
The score was composed by John Williams, not a very well known score but still very good for John Williams.
You can get the score on Amazon.
