BBFC Ratings info
Home Alone: The Holiday Heist is a family comedy about a boy who tries to protect his home when art thieves attempt to break in. Language: There are three uses of 'crap' and a single use of 'screw'. There is also some very mild bad language, include uses of 'God' and 'Jesus'. A character thinks their home is haunted, meaning there are references to ghosts as well as scenes of very mild threat when the character gets scared. There are also scenes of slapstick violence when the burglars try and break into the house, and also scenes of fantastical computer game violence.

Sex & Nudity


Violence & Gore


Just like the other Home Alones there's slapstick violence: A man gets a bunch of large beeds shot at him from a machine. A woman has black liquid dumped on her head. A man has a white liquidy substance thrown onto him. A woman is hit in the face with a filled stocking. Policemen slip and fall on top of each other. Some other action and slapstick violence is in the movie but it's meant for laughs. The SWAT police raids Simon's apartment after the phone call mishap and they pepper spray him after mistaking his game gun for a real one

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking


The only thing is eggnog, also referred to in the film as 'adult eggnog'. There's no drug references (Besides the Eggnog and caffine) and I don't recall a single person smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes


The main kid in the film is afraid of the haunted house and is scared of ghosts. No ghosts appear in the film.
