Tropes associated with Harry

Tropes associated with Marv

Kate McCallister (Catherine O'Hara)

Frank McCallister (Gerry Bamman)

"Look what you did you little jerk!"

Buzz McCallister (Devin Ratray)

"I wouldn't let you sleep in my room, if you were growing on my ass!"
  • Big Brother Bully
  • Jerkass
  • Karma Houdini: In the second movie. Sure, Kevin pushes him down after the electric candle debacle, but Buzz still gets away with conning the whole family with an insincere apology after the fact, and suffers no retribution.
  • Pet the Dog: Although he does redeem himself with a genuinely sincere speech in thanks to Kevin at the end of the sequel.
  • Precision F-Strike: See the quote.

Fuller McCallister (Kieran Culkin)

Old Man Marley (Roberts Blossom)

"Come, let's get you home."

Gus Polisnki (John Candy)

Pigeon Lady (Brenda Fricker)

"Let him go! Kevin, run!"

Mr. Hector (Tim Curry)

"What's the matter? Store wouldn't take your... stolen credit card?"
  • Butt Monkey
  • Inspector Javert: He's the only one suspicious of a boy staying all by himself in a hotel in New York.
  • Jerkass
  • Large Ham: As can only be expected, given who plays him.
  • Punch Clock Villain: Downplayed. He's doing his job and has every right to be suspicious of Kevin, but is overly eager in having him arrested.
  • Smug Snake: Is very proud in discovering the credit card "thievery", but Kevin got away. Oops.
