23 Reasons Rebooting 'Home Alone' On Disney+ Is A Terrible Idea, You Filthy Animals

23 Reasons Rebooting 'Home Alone' On Disney+ Is A Terrible Idea, You Filthy Animals

If you want to see how bad "Home Alone" is without Macaulay Culkin, watch "Home Alone 3."

23 Reasons Rebooting 'Home Alone' On Disney+ Is A Terrible Idea, You Filthy Animals
20th Century Fox

The cast was just announced for the "Home Alone" reboot on Disney+. While it's a solid cast, we are just wondering why it was necessary to reboot this Christmas classic in the first place.

It doesn't work. Cell phones.

Kevin McCallister = little Macauley Culkin ONLY.

Kevin wouldn't have a Seamless account, so he couldn't order the pizza.

Will there be enough annoying cousin distractions to make the forgetting of the kid possible? Doubtful.

"Home Alone" is arguably the best Christmas movie of all-time. It might be the last movie on earth that needs a reboot.

Good luck replicating Macaulay Culkin's Oscar-winning performance. 

The soundtrack from the O.G. "Home Alone" is too perfect, how could you top that?

There is NO way with internet, smart phones, Alexa, etc. that leaving your kid at home can be solved in a matter of minutes.

Kevin is 36 years old in 2019.

The gun sounds that the pizza guy hears would be 100 percent reported and investigated within 10 minutes.

You expect us to believe that there isn't ONE human the parents could call to get the child you left at home?!

"Home Alone" is one of the most quotable movies EVER. No new script will come close.

Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci are THE Marv and Harry, and I won't let you ruin this for me.

The stuff he uses to booby trap the house are so era specific it is cinematic GOLD.


Making a reboot tells the children of today they don't need to watch the original.


Also, they wouldn't have been late to the airport in the first place. Even if the power went out, the alarms would be set on cell phones.

Even if they left Kevin at home, he would have just Ubered to the airport himself.

None of them would have made their flights in 2019 if they were running that late because airport security is a NIGHTMARE.

There would be a MUCH better security system on this house...

The original "Home Alone" is simply the greatest ode to cheese pizza of all-time and it is perfect.

Now Kevin would be dairy free, gluten free, or vegan.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

The NBA is back, and for basketball fans, like myself, it has been the BEST news we have heard since COVID-19 shutdown play indefinitely.

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.
