Home Alone (1990)
The siblings: Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) and Buzz McCallister (Devin Ratray)
What puts them at odds? It’s a pure sort of sibling rivalry, this one: they just hate each other because they’re different ages and at different stages of development.
These two just don’t get along. It may be partly down to the fact that Kevin’s an insufferable know-it-all with a smart mouth and Buzz is a natural bully without a smart anything, but really we suspect that even if they were more alike there’d still be friction. There’s only room for one alpha male among the McCallister offspring, and at an age where siblings are almost guaranteed to fight, these two were always going to rub one another the wrong way. What’s more, we can’t help feeling that Kevin might have a point: how come Buzz gets a pet deadly spider and Kevin gets nothing comparable?
