13 Things That Would Be Different If ‘Home Alone’ Were Filmed Today

We’re pretty sure that everyone in the world who has access to a TV has seen a young Macaulay Culkin play ‘Kevin McCallister’ in the famous Christmas film ‘Home Alone‘, but if the movie was set in the present day, then things would be very different. What with modern technology, the whole ordeal probably never would have happened in the first place, but if it did it would have been resolved much faster! Check out these ways that Home Alone would have been different if it were filmed in the modern day!

‘The McCallisters’ would have had their boarding passes on their phones, rather than paper versions, thus Kevin never would have spilled milk over them and had his thrown in the trash, which explains why the family didn’t notice he was missing when they handed in the boarding passes at the gate!
