Merry Christmas from Kevin McCallister

"Kevin!" "Look what ya did, ya little jerk." "I'm gonna kill that kid!" The exclamations from Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York are quite memorable, but what exactly powered these two movies to become Christmas sensations for an entire generation? And how weird is it to see Joe Pesci in a holiday movie for kids?

On a special holiday episode of the In Reel Deep Podcast, Andrew and Steve follow Kevin McCallister, Harry, Marv, Uncle Frank, and the rest of the gang on an adventure from Chicago to Paris to New York and back again. Because it's not really the holidays until John Candy is playing the clarinet. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal.
