FRIENDS and Home Alone have been crazily connected for 12 years and NO ONE has noticed – until now.

Remember in the final season during 2004 when Monica and Chandler moved from their Manhattan apartment to a house in the suburbs of New York? Well that house was Kevin McAllister’s from 1990’s hit Home Alone.

Now while the Gellar-Bings were living in NY and the McAllisters were based in Chicago, the eagle-eyed folk at video production company 22 Vision have plenty of evidence to prove it’s the same house AND got in touch with the residents of the real house in Winnetka, Illinois who confirmed it.

So here’s the proof.

In the season 10 “Friends” episode titled “The One Where Chandler Gets Caught,” Monica and Chandler go to look at their new home in Westchester. (Joey comes, too.)

Pay close attention to the view out of the house’s window.

Look familiar?

The house across the street you see through the window is actually the same house across from the McCallister’s, aka the Murphys’ house, as seen in the exterior shots of “Home Alone.”

Compare the the patterns on the garage door — it’s the same house.

And if you look closely at another window shot from the “Friends” episode, you’ll see another house that belongs to the McCallister neighbors.

Look at the blue house with a wreath on the door behind Joey.

It’s the very same blue house with a wreath on the door that we see when Kevin sleds down his front steps.
So… wait, did the “Friends” episode, which came out in 2004, just film on the same set as “Home Alone,” which came out in 1990?

Not exactly.

As 22 Vision explains, it turns out “Friends” just used stock footage from the classic ’90s film to create Monica and Chandler’s window view.

I’m guessing the creators just put a green screen behind the set windows and then added the “Home Alone” footage in post-production.



Friends is my favorite show and home alone is one of my favorite movies..
