No…I’m not Home Alone but we finally watched the film tonight. And a few things occurred to me.
If this kind of thing happened in real life nowadays, the burglars would probably take the McAllisters to court and sue them for violent conduct. Firstly, they didn’t even enter the house and were attacked with a gun followed by having their hands scarred for life with a hot burner.
Also, as pointed out by Andy Haines on Facebook, it’s highly likely that Kevin would have been taken into care following the whole incident and never would have had the chance to get on a wrong plane for Home Alone 2 (in which he wasn’t actually at home at all)!
Morals are completely wrong in this film…I do love it though.
