About This Quiz

When John Hughes wrote "Home Alone" in 1990, he was coming off a string of unforgettable '80s movies like "The Breakfast Club" and "Pretty in Pink." "Home Alone" was a new direction for the writer — a family-oriented comedy rather than a teen one — and an instant holiday classic with all types of audiences. It had the warm appeal of a family movie with a clear-cut twist — a mischievous boy home by himself squaring off like a pint-sized MacGyver against a pair of bumbling crooks. It made Macauley Culkin a star and became a Christmas tradition for thousands of people. When the holidays roll in, you watch "Christmas Vacation," "A Christmas Story" and "Home Alone."

The family dynamic at the beginning of the movie speaks to many people. If you have a big family, then a big family gathering is equal parts exciting and nightmarish. Hughes and director Chris Columbus just made it over-the-top and hilarious in a way that's both relatable but distant enough to be funny and not induce the kind of holiday anxiety your real family Christmases do. So, which character matches you most closely? Take the quiz and find out!
