Home Alone (1990)

home aloneBy Scott Goldfine

What would happen if a seven-year-old boy was accidentally left at home by himself for the holidays? Not a whole lot if this comedy from the John Hughes (writer) mill is any indication. Despite a top-flight cast ― anchored by young Macaulay Culkin — this far-fetched film clinks along inducing scant audible laughs.

This Chris Columbus-directed movie’s best moments are found in the trailer. Also stars Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern as hapless  burglars, as well as John Heard, Catherine O’Hara and John CandyRated PG.
