When Home Alone came out in 1990, kids everywhere were given a new ultimate fantasy. Your house to yourself, being the hero/menace without consequence, and your awful family finally realizes that you’re awesome and they should be nicer to you? That was truly the dream. While Kevin McCallister also had to deal with the Wet Bandits trying to burglarize his home and loneliness, the pros definitely outweigh the cons. Home Alone is truly the most hilarious example of child neglect in cinema history, and has withstood the scrutiny of time.
With Christmas just around the corner and the 25th anniversary of the film today, what better time to catch up with the McCallisters? Check out what they’ve been up to since Kevin defended his home, ya filthy animals.
