It goes without saying that Home Alone is one of the greatest, if n0t the greatest Christmas movie ever made, but how well do you know the Chris Columbus classic?
For the three of you reading this who haven’t seen Home Alone we’ll give you a quick synopsis of the film. Basically Macaulay Culkin plays Kevin McCallister a beleaguered eight-year-old boy who gets accidentally left ‘home alone’ by his parents when his family jet off to Paris.
While Kevin initially enjoys his new found freedom he soon becomes the target of two bumbling burglars, Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern), who have their greedy eyes on the supposedly empty McCallister home.
Parental abandonment and home invasion may not sound like the best topics for a Christmas film, but trust us – with its focus on the importance of family not only is this a truly heartwarming movie, it’s also hysterically funny.
But why am I telling you this – you no doubt know everything about Home Alone, in fact I bet you know so much you’ll ace our fiendishly hard quiz won’t you…
Give it a try!

More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
