Home Alone is the perfect modern Christmas movie: full of gags, pranks and warm messages about the holiday season… Or is it? Take a trip back to 1990 as we explore the parenting skills of the McAllisters, policing in the Chicago suburbs, airport security pre-9/11 and why Uncle Frank is such a dick.

Do you think the polka van was creepy? Do you think Old Man Marley was Jesus? Are you still afraid of the furnace in the basement?  Let Shat The Movies refresh your memory, and relive all Home Alone’s classic moments with your three best movie buds.

Plot Summary: “Home Alone When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O’Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home.

    Hi guys! Just listened to this podcast and wanted to point out that Rog has a good ear! John Williams composed the score for Home Alone and the first Harry Potter. I happened to have the film scores on CD back in the day (so cool, I know) and always thought they sounded a little similar myself.
