The original 1990 Christmas caper Home Alone is one of our favourite festive films and the slapstick never fails to elicit belly laughs from adults and children alike. The later films weren't so great (Macaulay Culkin wasn’t even in the third, fourth or fifth), but there are various ways to watch whether you stream online, buy or rent a digital copy or even a DVD. Some are also on TV this Christmas. Here’s how to watch Home Alone and Home Alone 2, 3, 4 and 5.
