Home Alone is a heartwarming Christmas classic beloved by millions and is one of the most successful movies of all time. The simple story of a wiseass kid being left to defend his empty mansion from burglars has stolen our hearts and made us laugh at the outright violent slapstick that would kill the Wet Bandits in real life. It's a real hoot and a half.

However, while everybody loves Home Alone, there's a lot that happened behind the scenes that you probably don't know about. The making of the movie is just as interesting of a story as the movie itself. Did you know that most of John Candy's lines were improvised? Or that there was originally a post-credits scene?

We have some more on those stories and other Home Alone facts for you to consume like a whole cheese pizza, just for you. Come on, don't you want to know more about Angels with Filthy Souls?
