Home alone is a comedy set in Christmas time in the town of Chicago. Macaulay Culkin plays the lead role as Kevin, the 8 year old boy who must defend his home against two idiotic burglars. The roles of the burglars are played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern as Harry and Marv respectively.

It is Christmas time and the Mcallister family is preparing for a vacation in Paris. But the youngest boy in the family named Kevin got into scuffle with his older brother Buzz and was sent to his room which is on the third floor of the house. Then the following morning, while the rest of the family was ready to make it to the airport on time, they completely forgot Kevin who now has all house by himself. Being home alone was fun for Kevin as he makes a mess. Then, he discovers two burglars, Harry and Marv, about to rob his house in Christmas Eve. Kevin acts quickly by wiring his own house by making booby traps to stop the burglars and bring them to justice.

The plot in addition with the acting creates a film full of hilarious scenes. The characters show the ingenuity of a young child against two idiotic burglars. Also, the fact that the movie is filmed in Christmas period makes it more emotional.

Home alone is a film worth to see whatever the age of the person is, as it offers a well-written story and entertainment at the higher levels. I highly recommend it to see, particularly during Christmas period.
