HOME ALONE is a 1990 comedy adventure film in which an eight year old boy must fend off burglars when he is inadvertently left at home while his family fly off to France for Christmas.

Violence

There are a number of scenes in which violence is inflicted on the two burglars by the child character. However, the violence is always slapstick and comic in nature and there is no focus on realistic injury detail.

Language

There is occasional bad language, including uses of 'crap' and 'shit'.

The film also includes some behaviour that would be potentially dangerous if copied. For example, the booby traps devised by the young hero include placing a heating element over a metal door handle and pouring water on stone steps in freezing conditions in order to create a slippery surface. However, it is clear that the boy is setting these traps in order to protect himself and and that such behaviour is not normally acceptable.

At one point, the boy discovers a Playboy magazine in his brother's bedroom. However, there is no clear detail of nudity.
