Dwayne Johnson is one of the biggest stars in the world right now. Not only is he known for invigorating franchises, but he’s just an all-around good guy that everyone seems to want to work with. Dwayne Johnson could probably make any movie he wanted to right now, and he’s probably been offered plenty of projects that he’s turned down.

In an attempt to bring some gravity to the injuries that Harry and Marv would endure if they were ever hit in the face with a shovel, large pipe or a brick, one YouTube user decided to add some blood effects to footage from both Home Alone and Home Alone 2. You can see just how much more gruesome that makes Kevin McCallister’s antics below. Read More »

home alone friends connection

Shared universes are all the rage these days, but did you know that both Friends and Home Alone were years ahead of the curve, meticulously building a single wacky comedy world that contains both the shenanigans of Kevin McCallister and the hijinks of Rachel Green and her buddies?

Eh. Not really. But as a new video points out, there is an amusing connection between the beloved 1990 film and the popular NBC sitcom that could convince a delirious mind otherwise.
