Synopsis and Analysis

Home Alone tells the story of an adorable moppet abandoned by his loving parents who outwits and brutally assaults two bumbling burglars. For anyone who enjoys looking at adorable moppets or is amused by seeing stupid and wicked people suffer grievous bodily injuries, Home Alone should provide a pleasurable viewing experience. For those less fond of watching adorable moppets adorably lacerating bad people in various humorous and adorable ways, the movie may be less enjoyable. The production values are high and the acting is competent, or at least adorable.
