FAQs about Home Alone
For the curious mind, who wants to know more about the movie after taking the Home Alone quiz, here are a few frequently asked questions about Home Alone.
Is Home Alone a Disney movie?
20th Century Fox first distributed Home Alone in the early 1990s. Fast forward about 30 years, and Disney now owns all 20th Century Fox’s former properties, including Home Alone. Since then, they developed and released Disney+ where you can stream some of Fox’s old titles, including the original Home Alone. You can sign up for Disney+ here.
If you don’t have Disney+ or don’t want to sign up for another service, you can often find a DVD or Blueray copy between September and December in stores like Target or Walmart. You may also be able to find a copy on Amazon.
Is Home Alone a bad movie?
According to Common Sense Media, Home Alone is a “good-natured, albeit unrealistic, family film that both kids and adults will enjoy if they’re OK with the violence, profanity, and disrespectful behavior within the family. Its endearing story and a charming performance by Culkin…”
I’m going to stop you right there, Common Sense Media. Did you watch this movie? There is nothing “good natured” about a sadistic little boy devising a series of potentially deadly traps to critically wound two burglars when calling the cops in the first place would probably be the best course of action.
That’s some serial killer in the making stuff right there.
Another great example: did Common Sense Media take note of how his family actually treats him? Even ignoring the bullying the other kids put Kevin through, I’ll remind you of: “Look what you did, you little jerk!”
This was shouted at him.
By an adult.
In front of everyone in his family.
Coupled with how the other kids all seemed to treat him like he was the unwanted bastard child, no wonder he ends up trying to kill the Wet Bandits.
Don’t get me wrong. Home Alone is one of my family and I’s favorite movies. It’s just not exactly “good-natured.” And as far as I am concerned, it is one of the best Christmas movies of all time. Right up there with Die Hard.
Can my 5 year old watch Home Alone?
Interestingly enough, an Australian website, RaisingChildren.net.au, says that due to its violence, coarse language and some sexual references, it isn’t suitable for children under 7 years and we recommend parental guidance for children aged up to 10 years.”
Meanwhile, in the United States, yeah, I’m pretty sure I have introduced each of my kids to Home Alone from birth on up. And don’t get me started on the fact that my 7 year old can quote and likely pass this Home Alone Quiz.
In other words, if your child is super sensitive, then use common sense and don’t show them Home Alone. Otherwise, I’d say it’s safe for just about any age, so enjoy passing on the annual tradition of watching a young lad bludgeon two grown adults. It really helps get you in the spirit of the season for those that lost their Christmas spirit.
Is Home Alone on Netflix?
No. Disney now owns Home Alone so they exclusively stream it on Disney+.
However, you can rent or buy the movie on services like Amazon Prime Video and similar services.
