Catherine is shown on a split screen. In Al Alone 2: Lost in New York from 1992, she wears short red hair on the right. Then she realizes that her son is not with her, turns to the camera and yells “Kevin!” In front of the faint backwards. On the left today is the 66-year-old actress who is doing exactly the same step with her shoulder-length blonde hair and saying “Kevin!” scream before you pass out. The video was recorded by a TikTok fan of the Canadian actress and has over 440,000 views to date.
The original version of the clip appears at the very end of a tribute to the late filmmaker John Hugheswho wrote and produced both home alone films. Stars from many of his classic films appeared and starred on some of their most famous lines from Hughes’ classic films such as the Vacation series, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, and others. The almost five-minute video from the actor Josh GadThe Reunited Apart series first appeared on YouTube on June 30, 2020. You can see Catherine recreate her classic scene above at 4:43 a.m. along with all the other stars in popular John Hughes films.
The video hit Twitter, where some fans were shocked that Moira Rose and Kate McCallister are one of the same actresses. User @brogantatexo tweeted, “I was years old today when I realized Catherine O’Hara is Moira Rose AND Kevin’s mom in Home Alone,” while @ soneall89 wrote, “I’m sorry, but if you like Catherine O ‘Not knowing Hara was home alone, then you actually don’t deserve Catherine O’Hara. Fan @ bookworm84 wrote, “I can’t believe people go mad when they realize that the great Catherine O’Hara was Kevin’s mom in Home Alone.”
Catherine is best known to Generation Z audiences today for her epic role as Moira on Schitt’s Creek, which earned her a well-deserved Prime Time Emmy 2020 for best actress in a comedy. After six seasons of her wild wigs, over-the-top outfits, and bizarre accents on the pop TV series that has garnered millions of viewers over Netflix, some younger fans can’t believe she’s the same as Kevin’s healthy mom on Home Alone. Just like she says “David!” As you can see in the montage above, it is really a work of art, almost right up there with the screaming “Kevin!”
