If there’s one thing that might make you feel extremely old today it’s the fact that Home Alone was released in 1990. Saying “1990” doesn’t even seem that bad until you realize that it’s 27 years ago. I have a very hard time believing I was only 11-years-old when this movie came out, but here we are, it’s 2017 and Home Alone remains one of the highest grossing movies of all-time. I think that Salma Hayek said it best in the movie Dogma:
