You may have seen it pointed out that Kevin McCallister's parents in the movie Home Alone (set here in Illinois) would have been looking at serious trouble for leaving an 8 year old to knock around that fabulous house all by himself.
As someone old enough to remember seeing the movie Home Alone in the theater, I recall as we exited the theater overhearing a woman say to her husband "If you and I did something like that, and left a kid behind at home, we'd be going to jail!"
So what do you do when you read Disney wants to "reboot" the 1990 classic movie Home Alone? You and I would get uncomfortable. And seeing the language "reimagined for a new generation of viewers" gets further under your skin.
