How Did 'Home Alone' Get Away With This?
EVERYONE'S FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MOVIE, 'HOME ALONE', HAS BEEN HIDING SOMETHING IN PLAIN SIGHT THAT YOU CAN'T UNSEE
As we're getting right into the thick of Christmas movie season, you might want to pay closer attention to the what's going on in the background. Twitter user, @reillystyley has observed that when decorating the set of Home Alone, the set-dresser's may have gone overboard with holiday detail.
Can we talk about the McAllister's house in Home Alone for a second? Like, of COURSE you're going to be a target for Christmas bandits if your house is ENTIRELY Christmas themed! Okay, yes, they have a lot of Christmas decorations up, but that is JUST THE START... pic.twitter.com/9EN0SNyGJ2— Claire Reilly (@reillystyley) December 4, 2018
The McAllister's house in Christmas cult classic, 'home alone', is entirely christmas themed.
Why have we only just realised?
Yes, it's the 90s, but who has a green LANDLINE PHONE? With red, white and green wallpaper? And red flowers hanging from the bed above red pillows? Did they cast Catherine O'Hara purely because of her red hair? This goes all the way to the top... pic.twitter.com/cYv7eTJMKK— Claire Reilly (@reillystyley) December 4, 2018
The green phone. Theories swirl that Catherine O'Hara was cast as Mrs McCallister PURELY BECAUSE OF HER HAIR COLOUR.
"Tell the truth. Did you just decorate this place as an elaborate con to leave me at Christmas time?" pic.twitter.com/7fF99qb5Kh— Claire Reilly (@reillystyley) December 4, 2018
Conspiracy Theory: This over-decorating was all a set-up from the parents to attract Christmas bandits to the house and harass their child.
But WORST of all is the kitchen. Red pots, green tiles, red teapot, crimson floors, even a green rolling pin. Guys. We all go to the themed sections of IKEA and get ideas, but you're not supposed to do it in real life.— Claire Reilly (@reillystyley) December 4, 2018
Home Alone: Great movie. Decorator's nightmare.
THE KITCHEN IN HOME ALONE IS COMPLETELY CHRISTMAS THEMED
That's just wrong-town, man.
Okay, one more, just for good measure.— Claire Reilly (@reillystyley) December 4, 2018
