It was one of the best-loved movies of the ’90s – but apparently, Home Alone contained a major plot hole that most of us probably never noticed.
Remember when the McCallisters frantically tried to call Kevin from Paris, but couldn’t get through because the phone lines had been damaged by a tree which fell over in a storm?
But then, remember how Kevin had no troubles at all when he used the phone to order a cheese pizza?
What is this magical phone wizardry?
Well before you start questioning the meaning of life, relax – 25 years after the film was made a Reddit user has solved the mystery.
Responding to the Home Alone mystery on a Reddit thread on the topic of “What’s a movie plot hole so big, you could drive a truck through it?“, Phire wrote, “I always assumed the tree actually severed the main trunk line to the whole town, but local calls within the same exchange still worked.”
