“A lovely cheese pizza, just for me.”
It’s been 21 years since Macaulay Culkin starred in HOME ALONE, Christopher Columbus’ tribute to kid-on-adult violence. In those twenty-plus years, the generation of children who thrilled to Culkin’s exploits as Kevin McCallister, the eight-year-old boy who utilized his god-given ability to construct booby traps as elaborate as they were painful to protect his house against a duo of burglars, have grown up and become adults themselves. Now, with the carefree days of youth behind us and the knowledge learned that if you get hit in the head with a bucket of paint it will hurt a lot, a question remains. Is HOME ALONE still a funny film when you're an adult? You bet your Buzz it is.
To celebrate the joy of HOME ALONE and its carefree childproof carnage, we’re throwing a cheese pizza party. Come indulge in Kevin McCallister’s favorite type of pizza in an all-you-can-eat party of epic proportions. Chow down on some lovely cheese pizza as you thrill to Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern being beaten upside their head, stabbed and burnt alive. After all, nothing makes pizza tastier than watching Joe Pesci in pain. It's a scientifically proven fact.
With all the scary stuff happening in the world around us, isn't it time to recapture the fun of those parent-free sleepovers of your youth? Celebrate the days when the only thing you had to fret about was whether or not your parents were going to give you a TalkBoy for Christmas and enjoy some delicious cheese pizza, vintage Culkin and — possibly the one good thing about growing up — lots of beer.
