Catherine O’Hara Shares Home Alone Insights: McCallisters’ Wealth-Inheritance or a ‘Church of Their Own’?

Find Out More About The McCallister’s Wealth, Movie Making, and the Unexpected Cultural Impact

Catherine O’Hara, who played Kate in Home Alone, talked about the movie’s characters, Peter and Kate McCallister, being portrayed as quite wealthy. A report by The New York Times suggested that the movie family was in the top 1% of earners in Chicago. Economists estimated they needed around $305,000 in 1990 (equivalent to $665,000 in 2022) to afford the home in the film. The real house’s current value is about $2.34 million.

O’Hara found the house amazing but didn’t think much about the McCallisters’ income during filming. She joked about Peter having his own “Church of the McCallisters” and people having theories about their money.

In the movie, the McCallisters rush to leave for Paris, accidentally leaving Kevin behind. O’Hara didn’t expect the film to become a big deal but enjoyed the experience, praising the director, Chris Columbus, and screenwriter John Hughes for creating a perfect movie.
