“My poor little angel” is one of the Mandatory Movies Everyone Must See During Christmas Time. Released in 1990 and directed by Chris Columbus, the film featured a memorable performance by Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCalliste, a boy left home alone who must devise ways to protect your home from thieves during Christmas.
“home alone” (original title) had its sequel “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York” (My Poor Little Angel 2: Lost in New York) and a third film that was not as successful as the previous two, largely because it did not feature the boy wonder Macaulay Culkin and, moreover, introduced new characters. Many years later, with Disney’s purchase of 21st Century Fox, a fourth installment of the franchise was released, “My poor sweet little angel”as a sequel/reboot of the story.
“My poor sweet little angel” (“Home Sweet Home Alone”), the latest addition to the franchise isn’t a direct remake, but instead frames the film from the thieves’ perspective. In fact, the child in the first two films is not the same as the 2021 film, as his name is Max Mercer. And while the story changes a bit, too, he does explain what happened to Kevin McCallister. In that way?
WHAT HAPPENED TO KEVIN MCCALLISTER AFTER THE TWO MOVIES?
a character of “My poor sweet little angel” connects with Kevin’s universe: his older brother, Buzz McCallister (Devin D. Ratray), appears as a police officer in the original Disney Plus movie and offers some clues about what happened to the youngest of the McCallisters.
According to the tape, Kevin McCallister he has made good use of the two times his family left him home for Christmas. Several years later, as an adult, he seems to be dedicated to home security. In fact, a sign in the front yard of protagonist Max Mercer’s house reads “Protected by McCallister Home Security”.
Also, the house logo n the security sign has the same design as the original “My poor little angel”. Not only that, but Buzz notices the detail as he investigates the alarm set off by the would-be burglars and is subsequently asked to investigate a report of a boy left home alone.
Telling his colleague to ignore him as a prank call, he reveals that his family accidentally left his little brother home alone for Christmas, twice. It is because of that Kevin pulls the same prank on him every year.: will call the police to report that there is a child alone at home.
AND WHAT HAPPENED TO MACAULAY CULKIN AFTER THE FILM?
The performance of Macaulay Culkin, who was 10 years old at the time of filming, was so good that it would define her career. Since “Home Alone”Culkin has done everything from being the lead singer in a band to starring in “American Horror Story.”
However, his fame was for most of his childhood. After “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York”continued to be one of the best child actors in Hollywood with movies like “My Girl” Y “The Good Son”.
In 1994, he took a hiatus from acting and was not seen on screen again until 2003, when he appeared as a guest on “Will and Grace”. Since then, he has occasionally appeared on television, even doing a parody of himself in “Home Alone” for a Google Assistant commercial in 2018.
He is also the co-founder of the pizza-themed comedy rock band Pizza Underground and CEO of a satirical pop culture website and podcast called Bunny Ears.
