Advertisement

Raise your hand if one of your Christmas traditions revolves around a bowl of popcorn, blankets, and watching the antics of Kevin McCallister as he navigates lonely suburban streets, eats to his heart's content, and learns the true meaning of family while simultaneously providing a pair of would-be burglars a series of injuries that would, in reality, result in loss of life and limb. Sure, everyone loves the classic movie Home Alone, but have you memorized all the lines from every scene? Do you remember what Kevin said about Buzz's girlfriend? How about the polka band, where are they from? Let's test your Home Alone mantle and see if there's any pizza leftover for you when you're done with the quiz.

The history behind Home Alone

Although Home Alone is now one of the most popular Christmas movies in America, nobody had any idea how popular it would become when it was released in 1990.  Writer John Hughes is said to have written the script in just ten days after wondering what would happen if he left his 10-year-old son behind when the family went on vacation.  Director Chris Columbus was originally reluctant to cast Macaulay Culkin in the starring role but changed his mind after meeting the child actor in person.  The production budget for Home Alone was $18 million.  After the movie was released in late 1990, it grossed $285.8 million in the United States and Canada.  Worldwide the film made $476.7 million and held the record for the highest-grossing live-action comedy ever until it was dethroned in 2011 by  The Hangover Part II.  The film spawned two movie sequels and one TV movie, but only Home Alone 2 featured most of the original cast in their roles.
