In spite of poor reviews, I consider Home Alone 2 to be the pinnacle of the series.
Revisiting it as an adult, I find it shocking that I was allowed to watch something so utterly grotesque and violent as a kid, much less that we watched it as often as we did.
Merry Christmas ya filthy animal.
@kelbot I wasn't allowed to watch Ren and Stimpy as a kid, and I went out of my way to keep my parents from seeing Rocko's Modern Life, because I knew they'd take issue with it as well.
But yeah, so many things that were just an accepted part of my childhood seem moderately horrific in retrospect.
I imagine the same is true for every generation.
@ajroach42 In a similar vein nobody wore helmets when they rode bicycles when I was a kid. We didn't even own helmets and it was never even a thought. Now my mother asks if I wear a helmet when I ride my bike as an adult even though she didn't even care to buy me one as a kid. Go figure.
