"The little jerk is armed!!!" Amusing how that's only the first trap, and Harry's already yelling, "That's it!" when he hasn't even seen what else is in store for them; usually it takes a little longer to get to "That's it!" levels. You're absolutely right, no matter how many times one sees the picture, those 10-15 minutes remain the most screamingly insane in film history, and one can never tire watching these guys put themselves through the ringer over and over again even after it's clear it's no longer worth anything except petty revenge. The best joke from the first one for me is Harry creeping in the back door, only to learn exactly how much of a literal hothead he is; the look of pure horror on his face as he screams at the top of his lungs while the blowtorch ignites his head (making one wonder why he just stands there for about 10 seconds and thus compounds the problem) is as priceless as they come.

I remember my dad laughing like crazy the first time he watched the original "Home Alone". One of the those moments you remember... your dad enjoying Pesci/Stern pain. ha

Interesting to note the tarantula scream wasn't actually delivered on-set; they were worried about it stinging Stern if it were startled, so he mimed the scream when the cameras rolled, then dubbed it in during post-production. Having him then absolutely wallop Pesci trying to kill it (and Pesci then grabbing the crowbar off him and whaling him back in blind fury) adds the perfect payoff to the scene.

This movie is funny.
But I have to say honestly that this is one of those rare occasions where I felt the sequel "Home Alone 2" was even funnier than the 1st.

Of course Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci are brilliantly funny in both films. But I just loved the way their characters were dumbified even more in the 2nd film. And the way they both get even more brutally tortured at the end of the second film is priceless. But as if this weren't enough, you add a couple more comic heavyweights like Rob Schnieder & Tim Curry to the cast..then you got comedy gold.
