“Guys, I’m eating junk and watching rubbish! You better come out and stop me!” – Kevin
This! This is the holiday experience of a lifetime! That’s right – a hotel is offering a Home Alone experience unlike any other.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for several years, you likely know that Home Alone (1990) is a classic holiday comedy film. The iconic film is a heartwarming yet hilariously chaotic tale that follows young Kevin McCallister, played by Macaulay Culkin, as he finds himself accidentally left behind when his family goes on vacation for Christmas. With his family away and burglars trying to break into his home, Kevin has to defend his house using a series of inventive traps.
Kevin, a clever and resourceful 8-year-old, takes full advantage of his newfound freedom. He raids the fridge, watches gangster movies, and turns his home into a booby-trapped fortress. There’s a memorable scene where Kevin screams after applying aftershave and the iconic “KEVIN!” scream when he realizes his family is gone.
Meanwhile, the burglars, Harry and Marv, portrayed by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern, repeatedly fall victim to Kevin’s ingenious and often painful traps. From hot doorknobs and tarantulas to paint cans swinging from the stairs, Kevin’s pranks are guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. The Home Alone cast truly did an amazing job!
But amidst all the hilarity and chaos, Home Alone also delivers a touching message about the importance of family and the holiday spirit. Kevin learns that even though his family can be frustrating at times, he loves them dearly and doesn’t want to be without them during Christmas.
So, if you’re in the mood for some holiday cheer and slapstick comedy, Home Alone is the perfect film to enjoy with friends and family. It’s a timeless classic that will have you laughing, cringing, and feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. But – can you imagine experiencing this IN PERSON?!
