** The first two movies would last 1520 minutes if filmed today; ''cell phones''. Both the DVD commentary and ''Website/CollegeHumor'' pointed this out. Instead, the setup would have to involve CellPhonesAreUseless.

** Daniel Stern was required to have a live tarantula on his face when the prop one wasn't working. His look of terror was completely real (the scream, however, was dubbed, as it would have frightened the spider).

** Another possible allusion is that Kevin used an inflatable clown as a decoy and put it in the shower. One of Tim Curry's earlier roles was that of [[Literature/{{It}} a clown that at one point appears in a shower]].

Added DiffLines:

* CaliforniaDoubling: In the first film, O'Hare International Airport represents itself as well as Charles de Gaulle Airport. In the second film, all the scenes with Kevin's family in Florida were shot in California, as were all the scenes at Kevin's uncle's house, while several more of the New York scenes were shot in Chicago. The fourth movie wasn't shot in America at all - this one was filmed in Cape Town. The fifth movie was not only shot in Manitoba but is the first one ''not'' to be set in Chicago (it's in Maine).


Added DiffLines:

* ShootTheMoney: You'd be amazed to discover that the first movie had an incredibly small budget. A number of the visual effects (such as the B.B. striking Marv in the face) were literally done by a teenager in his parents' basement for only a couple of hundred dollars. Creator/JohnCandy's parts were all filmed at once, nonstop, for 23 hours, because that's all the time the producers could afford to have him on the set. The furnace in the basement was achieved by crewmembers hiding behind it with wire and flashlights. Director Chris Columbus and Macaulay Culkin have both joked that production on this movie was akin to attending "Film School 101". Many critics even agree that had this movie been made a decade or two earlier, it'd pretty much have been a B movie.
