In "Home Alone", after Harry says "Merry Christmas" to Kevin after telling him to look out for Traffic and then Kevin looks a little shocked with his mouth open, why does Harry not like the way he looked at him?

1 Answer 1


The way I read the scene is when Kevin looked at Harry and noticed his gold tooth, he recognized him as the 'police officer' who had been in their house a few days previous. Harry noticed the look of recognition on Kevin's face and this made him uneasy.

  • I would add that, in terms of emotion, the look on Kevin's face was fear. That puts the effectiveness of his disguise into question, thus making Harry nervous. Commented Aug 19, 2018 at 3:50
