Over time, I did come to appreciate more of the film. Looking at it now, Macaulay Culkin's performance is rather phenomenal when you think about it. This little kid carried the entire movie, often for long scenes by himself. Not a lotta grown up actors can pull that off.
I'd also like to think that this film is partly responsible for my love of sarcasm.
And now that we've reached the traps, Im too distracted to actually write anything further.
