25 years after its release in 1990, Home Alone is still a family favorite Christmas film and the sole reason anyone still cares what Macaulay Culkin is doing now. A kid with ingenuity and a solid head on his shoulders is hard to find nowadays which makes the film even more worth while to watch as Kevin McAllister takes on “too dumb to beat him” criminals in Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern. Although the movie has been around for decades there may be several things you still don’t know about it, so take it all in before next Christmas and astound your family and friends with your impressive knowledge of a classic film.
15. Joe Pesci’s “F-Bombs”
Joe Pesci’s character Harry is the brains of the low-level crook operations done by himself and Daniel Stern’s character Marv, however Pesci had some trouble remembering he was in a family film. Given the surprising violence, it is no surprise he forgot the type of film he was in but that also meant during his angry rants there were a lot of F-bombs dropped and director Chris Columbus had to suggest the use of “fridge” instead.
14. Robert De Niro And Jon Lovitz Were Up For The Role Of Harry
It seems Columbus really wanted the dim-witted criminals to have an authentic gangster vibe with Robert De Niro and Jon Lovitz both being offered the part of Harry. Both turned it down however which opened the door for Pesci.
