Macaulay Culkin Ranks His Favorite Macaulay Culkin Movies
Hello, Mack Fans! We recently sat down with our fearless leader, Mr. Macaulay Culkin, to rehash one of our favorite topics: Macaulay Culkin movies. Specifically, we got him to rank his top ten. Which is pretty meta and weird, and no, we can’t believe this is our lives. So without further ado: Here are Macaulay Culkin movies ranked … by Macaulay Culkin himself (with a little bit of behind-the-scenes trivia, of course).
10. MY GIRL
Mack: “Least favorite because I died. It was also when I learned I wasn’t allergic to bees. When I first got the job I had to go to a doctor to get tested for allergies to make sure I wasn’t allergic so that I wouldn’t die in real life. In your face, Devon Sawa, I got the part!”
9. JACOB’S LADDER
“I was not even in the credits. Also I got hit by a car in it.”
“Because Mandy Moore is a delight. I also got to be in a movie with people who were all my own age for once. All the other movies had been me as a kid with adults. On Saved I was the only one who was old enough to buy liquor.”
7. UNCLE BUCK
“Because John Candy made me giant pancakes, which were really real. I never ate them because they were made a week earlier, but they were actually cooked in a kitchen on a giant skillet.”
6. PARTY MONSTER
“I always felt pretty, but that’s where I learned I actually was pretty. It taught me to totally understand why women put in all that time getting ready. It’s worth it and I looked awesome.”
5. GETTING EVEN WITH DAD
“Ted Danson is a total sweetheart who knew I really didn’t want to be there. He was a good sport.”
4. HOME ALONE
“Okay, Google.” (Editor’s note: If you don’t get that, we suggest you Google it). “But also, the whole movie hinged on a little kid, which was a lot of pressure, but in the end it did so great that I got to go to school that year and say, ‘I beat Rocky’—because we did better than Rocky 5.”
3. RICHIE RICH
“It was the last movie I made for 20 years. John Larroquette hated me, but we bonded over Barq’s root beer because he was from Louisiana and that’s where Barq’s was made. Also, everyone in the cast was over 6’2 in order to make me look shorter and younger than I was at the time.”
2. THE PAGEMASTER
“What kid wouldn’t want to be a cartoon and work with Christopher Lloyd? He hated me in the beginning, but I won him over. We both had the same type of dog, a bearded collie, and that bonded us.”
1. HOME ALONE 2
“Because that’s the one that helped me buy a new house.” [Editor’s note: It’s a sweet house.]
