While watching Home Alone this morning, as I often do, it occurred to me that Al Queda ruined the entire possibility of this movie happening. The McCallister family is running late. They get in their Airport Express shuttle, get driven to the airport, and run directly to the gate. Then they hand the American Airlines attendant a stack of tickets, and everyone runs on the plane as a group, not noticing poor McCauley Culkin is Home Alone. HA! John Hughes - try making that movie today. They would have noticed at security that Kevin was not with them.
I wonder how many other movie scripts Osama Bin Laden ruined.
