BACK to the topic. HOME ALONE, THE MOVIE!!
I LOVE THIS MOVIE! Except for some bad language out of the mouths of one or 2 of the kids near the beginning, this is a really good holiday film. I laugh and laugh uproariously everytime good triumphs over evil in this film where the kid gets the best of the very funny crooks. Granted, what that child does to them would not be funny in real life --but the crooks did get their just desserts! Every prank is hilarious --for comedy. And I don't think the crooks cuss either! as one would surely be tempted to do, given what happens to them!
I love that the boy hides in the manger scene at the church---and meets the lonely grandfather in the church who says church is a good place to be when you feel bad about yourself. I love that the little boy encourages the older neighbor of his to make up with his son. I love the Christmas music of the church children's choir. I love the little boy's competency --and his resolve when he announces, words to this effect: "This is my house and I'm going to defend it!"
And we laugh really hard at the polka band with John Candy telling what bad parents the other guys are --compared to the mom they are taking home from her Paris vacation --on which she forgot her child --and left him home alone --accidently, of course.
So many American values herein. Is there anyone who has not seen it?
