[A] surprisingly charming film, which may be the first Christmas black comedy for children.

In one of the highest-grossing comedies of all time, hero Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) has free reign over his well-appointed suburban home when his family forgets to take him on their Parisian Christmas holiday.
After a frolicking montage of junk-food eating, bed jumping, and television bingeing, Kevin matures and tries his hand at “adulting.” Now the de facto ruler of his family’s kingdom, he is forced to defend it against burglars, the scheming Harry (Joe Pesci) and bumbling Marv (Daniel Stern). Kevin lures the invaders through a John Williams’ scored, Rube Goldberg-esque maze of pain. By the time the villains are conquered, we are ready for the sticky-sweet family reunion and welcome the final scenes like Christmas morning.
