Home Alone, the movie with McCauley Culkin, is a holiday tradition. It still makes me laugh to see young Kevin totally destroy the bungling bad guys in their attempts to break into his home while his family is on a trans-Atlantic trip.

That's the playful Hollywood side of this film. However, if you were to view this film through the lens of real life you'd probably have a different opinion of how events portrayed in the movie unfolded. Kevin's parents should be arrested for leaving him home alone don't you think?

Let's put the legal stuff aside for right now and look at the just how seriously injured Harry and Marv were based on observations of real medical professionals. When you hear the injuries described in medical terms this holiday favorite might not make you want to laugh so hard.
