-- intro: "Home Alone" was released 25 years ago today. Yep, it's been that long since Kevin McCallister's family forgot him at home while they went on vacation in France for the holidays. Nonetheless, Kevin was happy just the same to have the house all to himself.
What ensued was two glorious hours of Kevin tormenting would-be robbers until his parents realized what they have done and came racing back home.
But 25 years is a long time, so where is the cast now? What happened to Kevin, Buzz and Fuller?
Take a look and see what the actors who played the McCallister family are up to and look like now.
