8. “Home Alone” (1990)
Didn’t every kid dream of having the house all to himself? After 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) is accidentally left at home when his family goes on a Christmas vacation, he finds it exhilarating at first, but lonely as the holiday approaches. Of course, along the way he has to protect his house and foil the plot of robbers Harry (Joe Pesci, right) and Marv.
