1. Kevin McCallister

Your love for Kevin McCallister began like a Dickens novel: you fell in love at Christmastime. After watching Home Alone, not only did you wish your parents would forget you the next time they went on vacation, but you also dreamed of fighting bad guys alongside Kevin. Why, oh why weren't there any kids like this in your class?

3. Simba

You can pinpoint the exact moment during the movie when this happened: Simba crossing the bridge that symbolized his passing from youth into manhood, whereupon he instantly became the sexiest lion in the entire kingdom. Was it weird to fall in love with a lion? Perhaps, but hey, what do I know, we were three years old, damn it. We were innocent. And happy.
