Perhaps nobody here cares to discuss this extremly mediocre thriller from 1993 starring little Mac Culkin as a psychotic lttle runt who wants to push his own mother off a cliff, but I have to get this out. WHAT THE HELL WAS WRONG WITH ME!? I asked this because I used to like this movie! I saw in theaters, and owned it on vhs for a time, and genuinly enjoyed it. However I recently saw it again on (GASP) AMC!?!? After it was over, I was just floored by how fooled I was by this film into thinking it was ever a good movie. The films gimmic is that we get to see Culkin be evil and do horrible things to people, well so what? He does the same things in the 'HA' films too, I was never that entertained seeing him pummel and punish Joe Pesci and Danial Stern into a bloody pulp, to me, it always seemed more sadistic than funny. And oh boy, their's the ending! Don't get me started. Too late. What mother would choose to save her nephew rather than her own kid!? Especially when she has barly had time to grasp that her son was disturbed, I mean she just found out! So i'm a mother right, I think FOR 10 YEARS that my kid is an angel, I love him dearly and would die for him, BUT THEN one day I find out that he's not an angel at all, but an evil malicious little kid, so I immediatly write him off and drop him from a cliff to save a kid who I barly even know!? She didn't even seem upset! I didn't even buy the fact that he was labled "evil". To me, the word "evil" implies something almost supernatural, something that the devil himself has a hand in, Culkin in this movie just came across as an arrogant little bastard who liked to do bad things, not really "evil", just twisted. This film pushed my buttons in all the wrong places this time. In fact the films only saving grace is the boy who would become 'Frodo Baggins' Elija Wood, he was great in this film, perhaps HE should have played Culkins part, and vice versa. No, i'm wrong, just leave Culkin out of the film altogether. I want to say thanks in advance to those that reply to a thread caring enough to talk about a film from 93 that nobody remembers, and nobody cares about.
