Home Alone: All the Facts

Did you know a record-breaking blizzard hit Chicago just as production was about to begin on the movie? That doesn't sound too bad for a movie that takes place during Christmas, but it required 375 tons of snow to be moved to make shooting easier. Find out all about that and much more in the full video above.

Even though some of the visual effects haven't aged well in the 18 years since its original release, this fight still whips.
