Chris Evans And Seth Rogen both revealed that they are members of a special club this Christmas. They're now both people who thought that the fake gangster film in Home Alone was a real movie.

Evans seems to have taken it especially hard, sharing he shock online that Angels With Filthy Souls was a fake.

Filthy Animal

It piggybacks off of Rogen's post on the topic, where he admits that he thought the movie was real throughout his entire childhood. And there's a good reason for it too, but we'll get to that.

Rogen apparently found out at some point, but the same couldn't be said for Evans.

Pure Shock

Cap retweeted Rogen's admission and seems to admit that he didn't know until that very moment. Alarm bells went off, lightbulbs turned on, and a worldview was changed just by one realization.

Based On A Real Movie


But they shouldn't feel bad or anything. Lots of folks thought the same thing and it is because the filmmakers created a homage so well, borrowing their title from the Jimmy Cagney, Humphrey Bogart film Angels With Dirty Faces.

If anything, the maniacal mob boss in the fake version isn't half as over-the-top as Cagney is on the screen.

Returned For The Sequel

The moment was so popular and iconic, a fake sequel was created for Home Alone 2: Lost In New York where our gangster boss is back to confront his love about her infidelity.

It doesn't end well.

Keep The Change


One thing for certain here -- celebrities are not above being fooled by the products of the industry. They're just like us!

Also, Home Alone is really just so iconic at this point. It's at a different level of film history than most nostalgic pieces and cult favorites. "Keep the change, ya filthy animal" will never die as a classic line.
