People, we've got another Christmas classic on our hands. This is a holiday must. John Hughes is one of my all time favorite filmmakers, and I was thinking about doing some sort of tribute to him and his films, but that'll have to wait for now.
It was perfect watching it with Brandon, too, because he would do commentary from time to time. Think "rifftrax," or Mystery Science Theater for all you nerds (just kidding), but not constant. When the burglars do the break-in, two things come to mind: these two men are the dumbest people I've ever seen by not learning from their mistakes or surveying their environment beforehand, and they should have died almost instantly. But it doesn't matter, because it's a timeless classic.
Brandon was saying that I could play Macaulay Culkin's part in a remake (even though I'm much older and look nothing like him). I think he only said that because I am, indeed, white. He thinks all white people look alike. I don't agree with him on that one...
Anyways, good movie. Severely flawed, but it gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling so it passes.
