This is one family favourite that’s dear to our hearts. The first instalment landed on our screens way back in 1994 – yep, that makes us feel seriously old too! Starring Tim Allen, this is a fantastically funny ode to believing in the jolly man in red. Believing is seeing, but don’t just believe in this one – grab your remote and join in the fun!

This holiday phenomenon is hard to beat! Kevin McAllister is accidentally left home by his dysfunctional family as they head off on vacation, and it’s a childhood fantasy come true – that is until he has to defend his home from two pretty inept burglars! There’s lessons learned, plenty of laughs and some one-liners you’ll find hard to forget, and that’s without even mentioning movies two and three!
