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 ''Film/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]].

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 ''Film/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).
