It’s day 13 of our very own special Christmas Movie Advent Calendar, the Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown. Join with us as we continue to countdown to Christmas with a new movie to watch each day as the days get ever closer to the big day. All films are availble via various streaming and terrestrial TV services.
Day 13 – Home Alone (Disney+)
Eight-year-old Kevin is accidentally left behind when his family leaves for France. At first, he is happy to be in charge, but when thieves try to break into his home, he tries to put up a fight.
One of the most loved Christmas movies and regualrly in the top 4 Christmas movies of all time, the Tom & Jerry like Home Alone set the career of Macauley Culkin into the stratosphere for a while and is still one of the highest grossing movies. Although recent online memes will have you wondering about Mr Macallister and where he got all his money from, the home that a lot of people always wanted is Culkins playground as he embrasses and tortures Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern as he defends his house from the ‘wet bandits’ is still one of John Hughes most classic movies. And with the likes of the most beloved and much missed John Candy popping up as a travelling polka playing band, plus who can forget the tale of the creepy next door neighbour to the film created just for the film that for years everyone believed to be real (Angels With Filthy Souls). Home Alone is one for all the family this Christmas season!
A sure fire hit and most likely already on most peoples Christmas movie playlist, it’s today added to the Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown for you to enjoy once more.
