Was there a remake?

Macaulay Culkin recreated famous scenes from Home Alone nearly 30 years on from the classic's release.

In the minute-long clip, Macaulay pays homage to the infamous moment his eight-year-old character put on aftershave, jumped on his parents' bed, and told the pizza delivery boy to "keep the change, ya filthy animal".

However, times have changed – and grown up Macaulay finds that jumping on the bed actually hurts his back, and he doesn't need to pay the delivery boy because he'd already settled the bill online.

What happens in Home Alone?

When 8-year-old Kevin McCallister acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother makes him sleep in the attic.

After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true.

But his excitement soon fades when he realises that two burglars plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home.

The famous house was filmed at 671 Lincoln Avenue in Winnetka.
