Nothing says Christmas quite like scratching that annual itch of watching two imbecilic petty crooks attempt to outsmart an eight-year-old who is fending for himself. Harry and Marv would certainly be useless on the British television game show, Are You Smarter Than A 10-Year-Old?, as they are humiliated, degraded, and utterly embarrassed by this street-smart kid whose parents inadvertently headed off on holiday without him. If you hadn’t guessed already, this film is, of course, Home Alone. A seminal Christmas family classic that is dusted off and wheeled out along with Michael Bublé, Mariah Carey, and Elf every December.
