Home Alone poster

Home Alone is a 1990 comedy written by John Hughes about a young boy who's left home alone when his family goes on vacation and must outwit two burglars who have cased his house. The film spawned a sequel with most of the cast reprising their roles, as well as three additional films and other merchandising.

Robbie looks over a script offered to his brother summarized as: "A baby dinosaur's family goes on vacation and leaves him home alone." Robbie comments that the synopsis is too unbelievable.

  • Kermit tweeted the same observation exactly one year later, "There's nothing like gathering together with friends and family to watch your favorite holiday movies. (We just don't let @GonzotheGreat watch "Home Alone." We don't want him getting any ideas.)" [2]

Notes

  • In the film, Kevin tells his neighbor he "got a sweater with a big bird knitted on it". The line may be misconstrued as a reference to Big Bird.
