    Home Alone ushered in a golden era for children's movies that were also enjoyable (or at least watchable) for adults. Elite titles that dropped between 1990-1995 include:

    Home Alone I and II
    Hook
    Heavyweights
    Mighty Ducks I, II, and to a lesser extent III
    Rookie of the Year
    Little Big League
    Space Jam
    Indian in the Cupboard
    Little Giants
    Matilda
    Little Rascals
    My Girl
    Angels in the Outfield
    Blank Check

    My top three: Home Alone II, Hook, Mighty Ducks

    Leaving The Sandlot off this list is a bannable offense imo. Kid's a square

    it was not meant to be an exclusive list. if anything, those omissions further illustrate what a powerhouse of an era it was.

    Every decade has a bucketful of children’s movies that crush with adults at the box office. From Snow White, to Sound of Music, to ET, children’s movies routinely top the list of highest-grossing films of all time.

    The 90s weren’t particularly noteworthy for the genre; it’s just the decade we’re most familiar with and to which we feel the strongest connection.

    What does Rob McAllister do to afford a brownstone on the Upper West Side and an apartment in Paris?

    I mean, probably just avoided inheritance tax and did real estate or some other bourgeois such thing.

    Edit: Rob didn’t own the brownstone in UWS; his brother did. Get it together.

    Rob is the brother. Peter is Kevin's dad and Frank is the worthless third brother.
