A triple-bill of Christmas favourites. In 'Home Alone' (1990) ten-year-old Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) is banished to his room while his family prepares for a Christmas trip to Europe.
He wakes up to find they have inadvertently left without him.
Kevin must cope not only with life on his own but also with the threat of two persistent, albeit incompetent, burglars (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern).
Meanwhile, his mother (Catherine O'Hara) vainly tries to find a way to get back home.
The remake of the 1947 'feel good' classic 'Miracle On 34th Street' (1994), tells the heart-warming story of a young girl's desire for a fully-functional family, complete with a father and a baby brother.
The girl, Susan (Mara Wilson), confides in Kris Kringle (Sir Richard Attenborough), the kindly old man who is acting as the grotto Santa in the department store managed by her mother (Elizabeth Perkins).
Kris Kringle, however, believes he is the genuine Santa Claus and this devotion to the cause makes him very popular indeed, leading to record profits for the store.
This annoys rival retailers so much that they try to discredit the so-called Santa, leading eventually to a court case in which Kringle and his lawyer try to prove that he is the real thing.
Finally, in 'Jingle All the Way' (1996), Howard Langston (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a busy executive who wants to keep in his son's good books by buying him the present at the top of his Christmas list: the Turbo Man doll.
The only problem is that Turbo Man is the most popular toy in America, and nearly all the department stores have sold out.
Howard spends a desperate Christmas Eve attempting to track down his son's dream present, but finds himself in constant conflict with a crazed postman on a similar mission.
