Macaulay Culkin himself admits he once thought "Angels with Filthy Souls" was a real noir film.
"My entire childhood, I thought the old timey movie that Kevin watches in Home Alone (Angels With Filthy Souls) was actually an old movie," Rogen tweeted on Christmas Day.
"IT'S NOT????" Evans replied, and Kroll similarly responded, "It isn't? (Dead serious)"
Another Hollywood star, Elijah Wood, replied on the thread "SAME." Even the screenwriter of "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" and "22 Jump Street" got in on the convo. "I didn't know it until you just said this," Rodney Rothman tweeted to Rogen.
"Sorry dude. Merry Christmas ya filthy animal," Rogen wrote back to Evans.
Even Kevin McCallister himself admitted he was fooled. Macaulay Culkin retweeted Rogen with the comment, "Me too!"
We all know the fake movie they're talking about, right? It's the "rubbish" black-and-white noir scene little Kevin watches promptly after believing he made his family disappear.
"I’m gonna give you to the count of 10 to get your ugly, yellow, no-good keister off my property before I pump your guts full of lead," the gangster Johnny -- played by Ralph Foody -- warns an unexpected guest before shouting, "One. Two. Ten!"
The rest is history: "Keep the change ya filthy animal."
Vanity Fair published a deep dive into the beloved movie-within-a-movie back in 2015, and it's full of fun details about the shoot the crew pulled off a day before principal photography began on "Home Alone." The title, which viewers see on the VHS tape Kevin pops into the VCR, is derived from real-life 1938 crime thriller "Angels with Dirty Faces," which apparently didn't have much influence on the actual scene.
"I believe the title was decided upon only because we needed to create a label for the tape Kevin puts in the VHS player," art director Dan Webster told Vanity Fair.
You can watch the famous scene below, followed by some of today's most famous actors expressing their shock over its inauthenticity.
