Home Alone Characters: Evil to Good

Home Alone Characters: Evil to Good


with Christmas finally here what kind of
Scrooge McRib II if we didn’t release a Christmas theme to good to evil episode
and what better holiday choice then what I would argue is the greatest Christmas
movie ever made home alone after all there’s nothing more festive than
watching a little boy who has been abandoned by his family ruthlessly
defend his home against home invaders using all sorts of violent means no
seriously regardless of how the plot sounds this
movie puts you in the holiday spirit like no other film and with such a great
cast of characters who range all over the moral spectrum we had to give it the
good to evil treatment and yes we’re including the sequel home alone – lost
in New York and no we’re not including home alone 3 you uncultured swines side
now this time since I think the most evil characters are the most obvious so
we’re gonna flip it around start with the evil and end with the
good I’m Kyle with wicked bench and this is home alone evil – good and you wish
motion my brother ok first up let’s get the most evil out of the way obviously
we gotta go with Harry it goes without saying that Harry is a thief someone
who’s willing to steal from anyone whether it’s stealing from families on
Christmas or even a toy store that has its profits going to a Children’s
Hospital as charity I mean that is a pretty reprehensibly low morale bar but
there’s more Harry’s personality is absolutely terrible he is angry cold and
bitter he seems to have a really detestable outlook on everything around
him in which he’s completely comfortable stealing from and screwing over anyone
who gives him the opportunity you open your mouth and you’ll be
spitting gum out – euphoria and let’s not forget how violent he is I get that
he was angry after enduring a house of traps but we really can’t feel sorry for
him given the fact that he’s a criminal targeting a house with only a child in
it he chases an 8 year old in his own house threatens him with violence and
then when he finally catches him he tries to bite off each of his fingers
one at a time what an absolute psychopath and let’s not forget in home
alone – he pulled an illegal handgun on kevin and attempted to kill him with it this guy is a monster and deserves to be
put in prison for the rest of his life his own fear of going into a church
seems to represent the fact that he’s clearly aware of how evil he is maybe
when the church not called now let’s move on to his partner Marv part of me
wanted to try to find a way to rank Marv as a bit less evil mainly because of how
moronic he is we just broke out of prison a few days ago my thinking was
maybe his stupidity was enough to shock him up as easily influenced by his
smarter partner but no he’s almost as bad as Harry
yeah he’s stupid but he’s not mentally ill or handicapped so he is most
definitely responsible for his actions and although Marv isn’t as violent as
his partner he absolutely has no problem chasing a child in an attempt to rob him
it’s Santa Claus and itself at the start of home alone – he also alludes to
murdering Kevin when they bump into him and he has no problem watching his
partner try to bite off his fingers in addition to all that Marv seems to have
a real genuine love of thievery and crime turning on water faucets in
people’s houses to further ruin their property just because what I’m saying is
Marv deserved every brick of what happened to
now next up is Uncle Frank and I was really considering giving this scumbag
the number two spot but he without a doubt deserves the bronze dirtbag medal what an absolute horrible personality on
this guy let’s break it down he treats everyone around him terribly and we only
see him interact with his own family imagine how he treats people outside of
his circle he’s also a leash you better not wreck my trip you little
sour puss your dad’s paying good money for it what’s the matter Uncle Frank you
can’t help your little brother out by paying for some of those pizzas
you cheap jerk my brother’s house he’ll take care of it oh and let’s not forget
that he goes on vacation on his little brothers dime and still acts like a
total a-hole Kevin’s right to call him out on being a cheapskate and also who
talks to an eight-year-old child let alone your own nephew like this little
jerk and for what for spilling something he also responds to the realization that
the family forgot Kevin with comparing the situation to him forgetting his
reading glasses makes you feel any better I forgot my reading glasses
showing us that he doesn’t even care about the well-being of his nephew and
let’s not gloss over the fact that he just Kayode his own kid with a chair and
didn’t give an F Uncle Frank is a scumbag but moving on to another scumbag
brilliantly played by Tim Curry we have the concierge yes Kevin wasn’t supposed
to be using his dad’s credit card but how does he know that he’s way too
suspicious of Kevin for no reason the moment he pops up on screen then when he
found out that there was something wrong instead of confronting Kevin like a
normal person would interact with a child
he scares him and chases him away into dangerous New York City stolen credit
card next up we have a bit of a controversial choice I’m throwing in
both of Kevin’s parents Kate and Peter McCallister and just to be clear his
mother is worse without question it’s too late get upstairs now I know
this might sound harsh yes buzz and the other kids are jerks – Kevin directly
but Kevin’s pear are terrible on and off throughout these
two movies and they aren’t his siblings or his cousins they’re his frickin
parents yes the movies end with sentimental moments but that doesn’t
take away from the fact that both of them continuously single Kevin now and
buried him in front of everyone else despite the fact that Kevin is one of
the youngest kids they side with buzz who’s older and obviously always the
aggressor it was very nice they punished Kevin
despite the fact that the stuff he does is always out of defense for himself
against buzz in the first movie the mess was caused because buzz was taunting and
poking at Kevin sure Kevin pushed him but he’s half his size in the sequel
buzz humiliated Kevin in front of everyone and as a result caught these
hands why are they so harsh on Kevin but forgiving of buzz when you’re ready to
apologize to Buzz into the rest of the family you come down and what’s the deal
with banishing him to the Attic not once but twice Kevin you walk out of here you
sleep on the third floor what a weird thing to do and when Kevin claims
everyone in the family hates him his mother doesn’t even deny it
anyone family hates me maybe you should ask to Santa for a new family there is
obviously a real issue with neglect towards Kevin in the family and even
after his parents seemed to learn their lesson at the end of the first movie
they revert back to treating Kevin like garbage in the sequel also going back to
cheapskate scumbag Uncle Frank how the actual hell would you ever let
your idiot leach brother / brother-in-law
talk to your kid like this little jerk Uncle Frank should have got a smack in
the mouth but no nothing no consideration to even defend a little
Kevin who literally just spilled some milk okay a terrible one Cate and how
about this old couple I get not being able to give up your plane ticket maybe
you have to get home to family totally understandable but are you really gonna
make the desperate mother at the airport who wants to get home to her kid give
you a watch earrings first-class ticket $500 cash and whatever else serving a
watch a pocket translator $500 I’ll say the word again
scumbags okay buzz is up next and really he’s the younger family member who’s
noticeably worse than the rest of the already crappy relatives don’t you know
how to knock phlegm wad was is a bully who like his parents likes to target
Kevin specifically why he’s such a jerk I don’t know but everything he does the
Kevin just seems mean-spirited even by Big Brother standards he antagonizes him
humiliates him in public and then reacts with total apathy when
he finds out his brother was left behind and possibly in danger officer balls arc
is next but really you can probably include every incompetent police officer
in these movies seriously this cop knocks on the door a couple times and
determines that nobody’s home despite all the lights being on and you’re
telling me there’s no follow-up police report at the end of the first movie
really really low standards in this department but this guy this guy’s job
is to protect and serve and he responds to a pretty serious issue of a child
being left alone with total apathy you want us to go to your house just to
check on ya do you just sit there we wouldn’t want a child safety to get in
the way of your doughnuts we’re throwing in the bellmen here too
aka Rob Schneider he seems like he might be alright at first until he starts
snooping around in Kevin’s bag when he’s not looking
what are you looking for a guy who snoops in a kid’s bag another scumbag
that’s who okay I’m gonna do my best to rank the rest of the McCallister’s here
Jeff and Lenny are the worst of the remaining relatives Kevin you’re such a
disease sure they jumped on the let’s bully Kevin bandwagon too and target him
exclusively would the French call Liz incompetent
oh really Lenny because you’re what Americans call of King atoll now fuller
is a young child but make no mistake he uses his bedwetting as a direct act of
domestic terrorism on the family look at how he looks at Kevin when someone tells
them to not drink so much soda most of the other relatives can be ranked
together as neutral mainly because we don’t see much from them in terms of
good or bad this includes rod Tracy Brooks Sandra and Heather there isn’t
really much we can say about them given their lack of personality one way or
the other we’d say that Leslie is a decent person and I suppose we could
shock her up on the good side but in all honesty based on her actions I’d say
she’s pretty neutral and if she is good she gets docked a point for marrying
scumbag Uncle Frank guilt by association I say next her on the list is Donald
Trump he’s only onscreen for like ten seconds
and he’s already assisting our hero what a guy I guess he should probably be
ranked as neutral as well but hey at least he made an attempt to
be a decent person to Kevin here unlike most of the McCallister’s now Megan
we’re gonna defend enough to actually label her as the first overall good
person on the list yes she’s mean to her brother early on but later when it’s
revealed that he’s been forgotten unlike buzz she shows true genuine
concern about his safety he’s a little and helpless do you think he’s flipped
out so Megan is a good egg unlike the rest of her family ah finally we’re at
some genuinely good people we cannot forget about Gus Polinski polka king of
the Midwest polka polka polka oh there’s nothing bad you can say about this guy
he went out of his way to reach out to Kevin’s mom at the airport because he
knew that something was wrong and didn’t think twice to offer her a
ride because he was genuinely concerned about the well-being of her son then
again anyone John Candy plays is probably gonna be the most likeable
character in any movie moving on to old man Marley despite the
terrifying rumors that buzz tells Kevin old man Marley isn’t a murderer he’s
just a quiet old man who has become distant to his family he’s friendly to
Kevin and even as a real genuine conversation with him which doesn’t seem
like much but there’s a respect there that Kevin clearly hasn’t gotten
elsewhere and of course we can’t leave out the fact that he saved Kevin from
having his fingers bitten off by cousin Vinnie the only reason that were ranking
him lower than pigeon lady is because he really makes no attempt to not creep
Kevin out in the store pigeon lady is next and really she acts as the same
character type as old man Marley in the sequel she
a compassionate good person and most importantly she puts her own life in
danger to save Kevin’s life from two violent criminals in Central Park one of
whom had a gun this tells you a lot about her character and gives her the
bronze medal of good but the silver medal goes to mr. Duncan the guy who
runs the toy store in home alone – everything about this guy’s personality
and behavior is pure obviously he scores big points for donating all the money
the store takes in on Christmas Eve to charity but we know that it’s far more
than just a tax deduction for him just listening to him talk about how the
charitable act brings joy to him is all you need to hear to know this guy is a
wonderful person and once again we have someone who treats Kevin with great
respect and Kevin’s own kind deed donating money to the charity as well is
enough to warm his heart showing that being a good person is all that this
guy’s about okay so there’s only one spot left and we’ve missed the movie’s
most important character so I’m sure you know who’s getting the gold medal for
good the most good character in home alone is none other than Kevin but how I
hear many of you asked more good than old man Marly and pigeon lady who
selflessly rescued Kevin from danger more good than mr. freaking Duncan who
just wants to donate money to charity more good than the Polka king of the
Midwest yes and I’ll explain why as we’ve discussed Kevin’s family is
terrible and his parents neglect him in various ways he’s also bullied by
siblings and he’s treated like a second-class family member by everyone
around him yet he still acts with great moral character and that’s not even
factoring in the fact that he is eight or nine years old mr. Duncan is great
sure but he’s had his whole life to build up to that level of moral purity
but Kevin already has it he donates money to mr. Duncan’s charity too
because he genuinely believes it’s the right thing to do so you can give this
to mr. Duncan the hospital needs more than I do not to
mention the fact that he helps others out with their problems
offering oddly sagely advice to old man morally and pigeon lady what’s your
point and here’s the big thing the end of home alone too
doesn’t involve Harry and Marv coming after Kevin organically Kevin lures them
into a house to bring justice to them for stealing from charity because he
knows that the charity is a great moral cause he puts his own life in grave
danger to protect it Kevin is essentially a vigilante at this point
fighting on the side of good now some people have pointed out that Kevin’s
traps are too violence both in the first movie and in the sequel but I don’t hold
any of this against him at all kevin has the right to be territorial
with defending his home from invaders in fact I would argue that there is more
moral character and backbone in standing and fighting them like he did than
running to the police kevin is a young man of great integrity a vigilante who
is cleaning up the streets of evildoers all while offering people around him
great advice and having high enough moral character to forgive his family
for treating him so poorly I guess what he did to the pizza delivery guy was
kind of screwed up but boys will be boys anyway what do you think who is the most
good and evil characters in home alone 1 & 2 don’t forget to binge watch our full
good to evil playlist where we analyze the morality of your favorite shows
cartoons and movies but most importantly Merry Christmas you filthy animal
and a Happy New Year

  1. Or the undertaker
    C'mon Marv
    If keV actually talked to the undertaker u might de screwed
    If he some how managed to convince the undertaker guess what final rest

  2. This is completely relatable. The Mccallister family reminds me of my family growing up. The only real difference was my older brother and i got the worst of it , my family always favored girls to a point of almost complete neglect. My brother was like Buzz , he got in trouble but i also did for his behavior. My parents never learned how to be parents and that's one of the regrets my mother taken to the grave with her. My father knew he was a terrible parent but he found comfort in a veil of ignorance , his father treated him like garbage when he was drunk. My father thinks since my grandfather was terrible so he has an excuse.

  3. I agree the HOME ALONe movies are the best holiday movies!

  4. To defend Peter and Kate a little, they do treat Kevin terribly, but it’s around Christmas and that time is really stressful, so you don’t know if they treat him like that all of the time. Kate at least realizes that she’s “terrible mother” in both movie and feels bad about hat happens to Kevin, when Uncle Frank stays the exact same in both movies, meaning that’s probably his personality all of the time, not just on the holidays. I’d probably rank Kate and Peter just slightly below the other family member who didn’t directly antagonize Kevin. So they would be the most “good” of the “evil “ characters

  5. Yes i actually said how because kevin is a bloody serial killer

  6. I usually hate Donald Trump but helping Kevin's now that's a 👍

  7. marv is boomer from sam and cat but bad

  8. …Even though these were just movies, I LOATHE bad families; they should be punished, be taking to parent school and unless they learn their lesson, prison for life and send the children to a Orphanage and be adopted by a kinder family, anyone else agree?

  9. Trump should be ranked worst because he wants to build a wall

  10. Could you do one of these but for Zootopia?

  11. Cuzen: keven ur such a dizes
    Kevin: SHUT UP
    Me: u got that right bitc#

  12. Kevin is a freaking psycho he has said yes after shooting 2 people in the nuts and head scolded a guy's head and threw bricks from a 4 storie tall building at people

  13. The tarantula counts as a character because he helped Kevin at the end of the movie 🕷️🕸️

  14. Booby traps in Home Alone #1: awesome to cruel

  15. People say buzz is the evil one when in the movie Kevin went into buzzes room and stole buzzes life savings to buy a toothbrush and then he puts buzzes spider in danger and the spider probably died I mean how would you feel if your little brother killed your pet and stole your money oh not to mention he also destroyed buzzes room.

  16. Kevin did want to (kill his family a bit) in his tone of voice

  17. Die Hard is the best Christmas movie, fight me

  18. Umm… Green eggs and ham. Like if you need Green Eggs and Ham.

  19. U might think differently about the poka poka guy cause there is a theory that he is actually the devil granting kevins moms wish I dont believe it but its definitely interesting

  20. What I wonder is why is Old Man Marley in the Murphy’s house.
    He didn’t even know the robbers were there

  21. What other cameos has Donald Trump been in, because that is actually very cool, and I didn’t pick up on that when I watched the movie the first couple of times.

  22. "The greatest Christmas movie ever made"

    A Christmas Story would like to have a word with you…

  23. "What kind of mother am I?"
    Asking this question kinda answers it, too…

  24. Good video

  25. should u put urself on the list for all the bad words that u said seriously what if theres little kids watching this u can like if u agree if u want its ur choice

  26. 10:10 daaaaaaannnng sooon

  27. Kate and Peter are what you get when you never pay attention to the pureness of Mr Rogers.

  28. I'm betting you that Mr. Duncan, The Pidgeon Lady, Old Man Marley, Kevin, and everyone else on either good or neutral list watched, payed attention, and listened to the life lessons from Mister Rogers in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.

  29. Keven reminds me of Junior from Problem Child.

  30. Kevin is a fucking future serial killer. 😂😂

  31. Mr. Piiiiickls goooood booooy

  32. How is Kevin good? Like I know that the bandits are robbers but you see how much pain he brings to them and almost kills them! Plus, he wants his family members to disappear so I'm getting real jigsaw vibes from him.

  33. Where is simpsons good to evil

  34. #Kevindidnothingwrong

  35. 9

  36. Lol, why the hell is trump so far up?

  37. The sadistic laughing mob XD

  38. Duncan scammed Kevin you can tell he was lying

  39. KeVin sToLe a toOtHbrUsH.
    Lol.

  40. How the hell did Kevin get the best? He literally tortures people who were just going to rob someone in many potentially fatal ways. He makes the tagret version of SAW TRAPS. He also probably grows up to be saw his fucking self. Kevin should have a fucking life sentence on an isolated prison island. Even better, Alcatraz, if it weren't closed.

  41. Hey, wickedbinge, how about you do A good to evil list on the persona franchise.

  42. The 😈 Worst To 😇 Best Characters Of "Home Alone", and "Home Alone 2" In My Opinion…

    😈 #1 (Worst Character) Harry (Thief/Mastermind/Attempts To Kill Kevin)

    #2 Marv (Thief/Attempts To Kill Kevin)

    #3 Uncle Frank (Selfish/Leech)

    #4 The Concierge (Spies On Kevin/Inconsiderate About The Situations At Hand/Scares Kevin Away From The Hotel)

    #5 Kate and Peter McCallister (Poor Moral Examples)

    #6 Buzz (Big Bully Brother)

    #7 Jeff (Bullies Kevin/Insultive Negative Labels)

    #8 Lenny (Bullies Kevin/Negative Labels)

    #9 Bell Boy (Snooping/Inconsiderate/Greedy)

    #10 Old Couple (Selfishness/Greedy/Unnecessary Delay)

    #11 Officer Ballzark (Poor Security Services)

    #12 Fuller (Drinks A Lot To Wet The Bed On Purpose)

    😐 #1 (Neural Character) Leslie (Caring But Married Uncle Frank.)

    #6 Megan (Concerned About Kevin's Safety.)

    #5 Gus Polinski (Saw The Need/Offers Ride To Kevin's Mom.)

    #4 Old Man Marley (Scared Kevin At First/Showed Nice Side/Saved Kevin From Harry And Marv.)

    #3 Pigeon Lady (Nice/Saved Kevin From Harry And Marv.)

    #2 Mr. Duncan (Runs Toy Store To Help Raise Money For Hospitals.)

    😇 #1 (Best Character) Kevin McCallister (Moral Character/Donates Money To Mr. Duncan To Give To The Hospital/Gave Very Helpful Advice/Kevin Saves The Toy Store/Saves Uncle Rob's House/Saves His House/Kevin Got Harry And Marv Arrested Before Kevin's Mom And Family Would Find Him/Forgives His Family For Mistreatment.)

  43. At least Uncle Frank doesn't let Kevin watch a violent film that later scares him when he's alone and even he claps for Kevin at the hotel.

  44. WickedBinge:He caught these hands

    Best thing ever lol 😂

  45. 11:40 "there's nothing bad to say about this guy"… if memory serves me right, didn't he forget his own kid in a funeral home

  46. What? You're listing Trump as good? And not REMOVING him from this review like Canada did with this year's showing of the film? As Greta would say, ""How DARE you!" XD

  47. Judge: I sentence you to 5 years in prison and to sleep with Fuller

  48. Do a Frozen Good to evil (all Frozen movies)

  49. Is this clickbait it’s always good to evil not evil to good

  50. Here's a suggestion for good to evil Ben 10. I've been rewatching the show and it has a pretty good list of characters you can say are good, evil, and neutral.

  51. Good to evil emoji movie

  52. Yuck home alone 3!!!! Disgusting absolutely disgusting!!!!!!!!!! No no noooooooo

  53. do zootopia

  54. Do a good to evil on Harry Potter!

  55. I agree with the Hotel people being some of the most evil characters. He's a nine year old kid yet they are automatically suspicious of him and treat him like a thief…? Lol he's a little boy why is their first reaction "this boy is a criminal!" instead of like "huh, where's this boy's parents, maybe we should talk to him"

  56. Star Wars Characters

  57. Im suprised trump was on the list honestly he should be allitle higher

  58. PLEASE do The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants good to evil next

  59. Where the f*ck is the guy in that movie who not only saved Kevin once but two times!

  60. Can you do 1st and 2nd ranked good characters good to most good from the series

  61. Do Danny phantom

  62. Good to evil

  63. Can we get family guy good to evil?

  64. Old man Marley ,pigen laidi and mr. Dumcken ste my persinal favorite carters on Home sline.

  65. If you hate uncle frank thumbs up

  66. plot twist: Trump was the 2nd nicest mccallister

  67. Cars characters good to evil cars 1,2&3

  68. Kevin is a phicopath

  69. You put Kevin’s mom as evil, but she gave up her trip to Paris, sat in an airport for like 18 hours, offered everything on her, just so she could see Kevin was alright

  70. I feel like you did mess up there a bit at the good spectrum: Kevin is a good person but being that he is a kid, he is still fiendishly clever in his traps and torture methods. I feel like Kevin is more of a chaotic type of good, with quite a bit of neutralism in there: he doesn’t always act with goodness in mind: he was too impatient in the second movie to even wait to put batteries in his sound recorder, and goes out of his way to do things he isn’t supposed to do at first, like watching movies he was told not to, or staying up late.
    I do not think you’re giving John Candy’s character enough credit: he may be an adult, but he willingly goes out of his way to take this lady he doesn’t even know back home to her son. And so on.

    Oh yeah aLSO Uncle Frank is also worse than the criminals no doubt, why? Because he’s uncle *fRaNk*, and FRANKLY the worst.

  71. Do this with the secret life of pets 2

  72. CFC

  73. I like home alone

  74. Can you please do Good To Evil in the Home Alone Video Games?

  75. tommy gun don't guy doesn't count? I distinctly remember figuring out no more than 4 seconds into seeing Harry that he was a cop inpersonator only a year after the first movie came out yet never knew rob schnieder was in this until now

  76. It's kinda funny that old man Marley is probably exactly what Kevin would've been in 50+ years if he didn't forgive his family

  77. If’s you take requests can you do a good to evil MCU character list.

  78. I thought it would be obvious to everyone that the most evil character is Kevin McAllister. I mean instead of just calling the cops, he decides to torture the burglars with sadistic death traps. Don't be fooled by the seemingly innocent eyes and boyish charm of Kevin, he is a jerk and had he not been a minor, he would've been trialed and convicted in the court of law.

  79. Marv is the worst for the fact that he leaves the taps on and even Harry thinks that's sick

  80. Can you do a good to evil for the shows:
    Fairly Godparents
    Dinosaurs
    Godzilla the series
    Big Hero 6
    And Rugrats?

  81. You know because there is so many morally diverse characters, I think you should do courage the cowardly dog

  82. Total Drama Island Good to Evil

    Thumbnail:
    Good – DJ
    Neutral – Courtney
    Evil – Heather

  83. Donald Trump is the best good guy.

  84. …so the cop WAS Harry?🤔 I never knew that! ALL this time, I SERIOUSLY thought that it was Joe Pecsi playing two different characters in the movie!

  85. Well to be fair, at least Uncle Frank was able to censor himself when yelling at young Kevin…

  86. Kevin DID in fact STEAL that toothbrush. I don't know about him being ALL PURE…

  87. Do a good to evil A Christmas Story version

  88. The deserved it, that’s what he got for not leaving enough cheese pizzas

  89. I would have been sorely disappointed if you had included 3, 4, and 5! lol

  90. Use should do Jackie chan's adventure

  91. 591th

  92. Our president helping a bystander who is lost, god I love that man.

  93. Kate McCallister: what kind of a mother am I?
    Me: it took you that long to figure that out.
    I like this because an eight year old Kevin can fend for himself and Buzz would probably be freak out if someone broke into the house.

  94. Happy Holidays everyone!😁😊👍
    For the next Good to Evil, fingers crossed for We Bare Bears.
    I'd love to see where Grizz's placed.

  95. 5:10
    I like how the book says Peter’s thinking, “I can’t believe this idiot is my brother”

  96. Gta protagonists bad to badder

  97. You forgot to put the pizza guy

  98. forget that ugly tarantula i hate the first movie cuz he has a tarantula so eff that spider so no.

  99. A fucking asshole, nice wordplay my friend
