An eight-year-old troublemaker must protect his house from a pair of burglars when he is accidentally left home alone by his family during Christmas vacation.
Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix were considered for the role of Buzz. They had appeared together in I Love You to Death (1990), released seven months before Home Alone, and again one year later in My Own Private Idaho (1991).
Harry: Hi. Are you Mr. McCallister?
Peter McCallister: Yeah.
Harry: The Mr. McCallister who lives here?
Peter McCallister: Yes.
Pizza Boy: Oh, good, because somebody owes me $122.50.
When Kevin goes across the street to his neighbors house entering though the flooded basement his clothes are soaked as he rushes up the stairs. In the next scene where he goes though the door to run into Harry and Marv his clothes are dry.
On most television airings, Buzz's line "I wouldn't let you sleep in my room if you were growing on my ass," has "ass" dubbed over with "butt".
