Home Alone (1990)

Here's another one that launched a movie career. This time it's the then-10-year-old Macaulay Culkin, who stars as the cute and highly resourceful Kevin McCallister. After being accidentally left at home when his family takes off for a Christmas vacation overseas, Kevin relishes his new-found, unfettered freedom. But he gets more than he bargains for when a pair of half-wit thieves (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) try to break into the house… or perhaps they get more than they bargained for. Critics may not have liked Home Alone as much as audiences did, but there's no disputing that Kevin's face slap has become one of Hollywood's most memorable and imitated images.
