It is Christmas time and the McCallister family is preparing for a vacation in Paris, France. But the youngest in the family named Kevin got into a scuffle with his older brother Buzz and was sent to his room which is on the third floor of his house. Then, the next morning, while the rest of the family was in a rush to make it to the airport on time, they completely forgot about Kevin who now has the house all to himself. Being home alone was fun for Kevin, having a pizza all to himself, jumping on his parents' bed, and making a mess. Then, Kevin discovers about two burglars, Harry and Marv, about to rob his house on Christmas Eve. Kevin acts quickly by wiring his own house with makeshift booby traps to stop the burglars and to bring them to justice.Written by
Several of Chris Columbus' family members made cameos in the film: His mother-in-law and his daughter Eleanor Columbus were passengers on the plane.

When Marv and Harry are arguing in the van, they realize they are about to hit Kevin and screech to a stop. But the distance they had to stop was not enough time to avoid hitting Kevin. Nor did the distance shown at first match the next scene. See more »
Television airings edited the following: Kevin saying that Fuller will pee all over him after explaining to Kate that Fuller wets the bed; Kevin calling Harry and Marv "horse's ass"; when everyone glares at Kevin after the dinner accident, the second scene with Peter and Buzz looking at him was removed.

the great virtue - its simplicity. a story who escapes from surprises, inspired use of clichés, the role of life for the young Culkin and family humor in a fascinating style. short - one of the dreams of each child, the great fear of each parent. and the danger. few lovely scenes, so beautiful than defines the film as perfect, the gags, the resistance against bad guys, the chaos behind the trip, the competition between brothers are prepares for admirable meetings. a Christmas film. but a real special one. because it is one of great occasions for rediscover the beauty and joy and force of life. as an unique form of miracle.
