  1. Kinda hard to believe that Home Alone is 25 years old now! And is being turned into a book iirc. This one was definitely a family favourite, and I can’t believe my nephew hasn’t seen it, or knows of its existence yet. That will have to change asap! Thanks for the inspiration for an upcoming movie night! 🙂

  2. I was born in 1987, so I am a huge fan of ALL of these movies! I recently had my kids watch Double Double Toil & Trouble with the Olsen twins. I’m going to print out your blog post so I can add these to the ones I want to show my kids next. (Matilda!)
