So, over the course of the past few days and weeks, we have been bringing you our list of Top 10 Christmas Movie Characters, which has not exactly been the easiest of lists to put together. We have managed to give you some fantastic characters, including Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf in the movie Elf, which was number two on the list, bringing us to our number one choice for today.
When it comes to the best Christmas Movie Characters, the film they are from really needs to have a Christmas feel to it and it is fair to say that there are not many that do so as well as Home Alone, which is up there among the best Christmas movies of all time. Meanwhile, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York was also a very good film, before the franchise lost its way.
The first two Home Alone movies gave us some great characters, such as Joe Pesci as Harry the burglar but, it is fair to say that the one who stole the show in these movies, was the child actor Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister. Macaulay had that perfect cute look to lure the robbers into a false sense of security, before then taking them down, with some great one liners along the way.
Following those two Home Alone movies and then also having films such as Uncle Buck and My Girl to his name, we really had high hopes for the career of Macaulay Culkin. Unfortunately for him, he never managed to match the great performances that he gave us in the Home Alone films.
Keep your eyes open for our next Top 10 list.
