That guy who directed ''Film/HomeAlone'' (and the first sequel), ''Film/MrsDoubtfire'', the first two ''Film/HarryPotter'' films, the movie version of ''Film/{{RENT}}'', and the movie of ''PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. A protégé of Creator/StevenSpielberg, Columbus started off as a screenwriter in TheEighties, during which time he wrote the scripts for ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'', ''Film/TheGoonies'' and ''Film/YoungSherlockHolmes''. He got a reasonably good start as a director in 1987 with ''Film/AdventuresInBabysitting''. And, no, we don't know [[NamedAfterSomebodyFamous what the hell his parents were thinking]].

No YMMV commentary in the Main Page.

Regrettably, SturgeonsLaw seems to apply to the Chris Columbus canon, which is mostly composed of SoOkayItsAverage schlock like ''{{Stepmom}}'', ''Heartbreak Hotel'' and possibly some of the aforementioned films depending how you might feel about them. The best career advice we can give him is to cut back on the attempts at being heartwarming. And, no, we don't know [[NamedAfterSomebodyFamous what the hell his parents were thinking]].

Some have noticed similarities between ''YoungSherlockHolmes'' and the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series (both being about a trio of students solving a mystery at a British BoardingSchool full of eccentric professors) and noted what an odd six-degrees twist it would be if JKRowling had been influenced by the film. Reportedly, the script of ''YoungSherlockHolmes'' was even used to audition actors for the first ''Potter'' film.

Is well-regarded as being a great director of young children, especially in films where they carry a bulk of the film. His work with Macauley Culkin in ''HomeAlone'' gave him an edge in getting the ''HarryPotter'' gig, as they needed an experienced hand with three children (two of which was their feature film debut) who were going to carry most of the film's two-and-a-half-hour running time. Has also hit box-office gold like few directors have; at various points in his career, he's had the third-highest-grossing domestic film of all time (''Home Alone''), the TWO highest-grossing live-action comedies of all time (''Home Alone'' and ''Mrs. Doubtfire'', which also won a Golden Globe for Best Picture- Musical/Comedy), and then the second-highest-grossing film worldwide of all time with the first ''Harry Potter'' film (all have been surpassed since).
