Buzz, Your Girlfriend Woof! Make A Home Alone GIF November 05 2014

There's an app for that! Did you know that you can take your favorite scene from Home Alone - Kevin finds a picture in Buzz room of his girlfriend and says, "Buzz Your Girlfriend, Woof!" 

Now you can insert a picture of your friend, co-worker, family member, etc.

Little known fact - the real image used in Home Alone was not a girl, but the son of the films Art Director.  John Hughes felt it would be mean to actually cast a girl for the role, so they found a boy willing to dress up!

Seven Facts You Didn't Know About Home Alone (from WetPaint)

Kevin's Little Brother Was Played By Macaulay's In Real Life Little Brother

Kieran Culkin, who eventually became a movie star in his own right, played Kevin's Pepsi-chugging little brother, Fuller. Kieran went on to star in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Igby Goes Down, andThe Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys.

Originally, the Whole House Was Supposed to Be Evil

Unfortunately, they ran out of money before they could make a sentient house, according to AMC. They had to settle for just the evil furnace, which taunted Kevin with a "Ha ha ha. Hello, Kevin."

The Movie Kevin Uses to Fake Out the Pizza Guy Isn’t Real

That film that Kevin watches on TV in that infamous movie dialogue scene? It's a fake movie! It's called Angels With Filthy Souls, a parody of the 1938 gangster movie Angels with Filthy Faces. The fake movie scenes were shot on cardboard sets before filming for the rest of Home Alone began.

Robert De Niro Turned Down a Role

Joe Pesci played one of the crooks hunting Kevin, but originally, his Goodfellas co-star Robert De Niro was offered one of Home Alone's baddie roles. He turned it down, according to AMC. Too bad — he never got a piece of that.

People Used Home Alone as Proof Elvis Was Alive

We're sure you're aware of the ol' "Elvis is alive" conspiracy, but did you know that those who believe the King never died love the film Home Alone? Some Elvis devotees say that an extra standing behind Kevin's mom at the airport as a dead ringer for the Hound Dog singer.

The Talkboy Started Out as a Home Alone 2 Prop

'90s kids remember the Talkboy, ahandheld tape recorder that distorts the pitch of the user's voice. Kevin had one in Home Alone 2, but at the time the film was written, it wasn't a real-world product! The real tape recorder became available due to popular demand after kids saw Kevin using his sweet piece of cutting-edge technology.
