Joe Pesci deliberately avoided Macaulay Culkin on-set, because he wanted Culkin to think he was mean.
Catherine O’Hara revealed in 2014 that Macaulay Culkin still calls her “Mom”.
The line “You guys give up, or are you thirsty for more?” was improvised.
Macaulay Culkin drew the map that his character uses to set up the traps.
Many of the shots that focus on Kevin in the beginning of the movie are filmed from above his head, making him seem small and helpless. At the end of the movie, Kevin is mostly shot from below, making him seem taller and more confident.
This movie was entered into the Guinness Book of World Records as the “Highest Box-Office Gross – Comedy”, grossing $477 million worldwide.
