Home Alone fans are questioning why deleted scene was left out of film

Home Alone fans are questioning why deleted scene was left out of film

It is officially December, which means the countdown to Christmas is well and truly underway.

And what better way to get into the festive spirit than by sitting down with family or friends and watching a Christmas film.

One of the most loved Christmas films is, of course, Home Alone, following Kevin McCallister (played by Macaulay Culkin) as he is left home alone at Christmas - though, as we all know, that's only part of it.

If you have watched Home Alone as many times as we have, you will be able to recite the majority of the scenes in the film.

But as with every film that comes to the cinema, there are scenes that for whatever reason are not deemed good enough to make the cut.

Well, after the film had been made, footage was released of scenes that never made the cut.

And this one, which has been doing the rounds on TikTok recently, has fans wondering why director Chris Columbus decided to take it out. Watch it below:

The scene sees Marv (Daniel Stern) and his criminal friend Harry (Joe Pesci) in the latter's van, driving along.

The pair start singing the classic Christmas song Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, but with a bit of twist.

Instead of the much-loved festive song, Marv and Harry sing: "You better watch out, you better not hide, if your doors are open, we are coming inside.

"Harry and Marv are coming to Town.”

The pair continue: "We know when you are out dancing, we know just what to take, we know where all the money is hid, so come on and give us a break."

In the deleted scene, Marv and Harry continue with another verse of the reimagined Christmas classic, in what is a hilarious scene.

Home Alone fans have taken to the comments section of the TikTok, with many asking why it wasn't included in the final cut.

One person said: "They should have kept this in the movie."

A second added: "Definitely should have left this in."

And a third said: "After 30 yrs why is this the first time I'm seeing this?"

Another person in the comments said they wanted a Home Alone director's cut – and after 32 years, that is certainly something we'd love!
