Home Alone (1990)

In director Chris Columbus' family comedy:

  • the scene of 8 year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) in front of the mirror - speaking to his mirror image about personal grooming - without his parents to assist. He combed his hair, applied Right Guard deodorant under his armpits, and put aftershave lotion on his face - causing him to scream: "I took a shower washing every body part with actual soap, including all my major crevices, including in between my toes and in my belly button which I never did before but sort of enjoyed. I washed my hair with adult formula shampoo and used cream rinse for that just-washed shine. I can't seem to find my toothbrush, so I'll pick one up when I go out today. Other than that, I'm in good shape"
