Character Duo Spotlight: Harry and Marv

Harry Lyme and Marv Merchants are known as the "Wet Bandits" because of their calling card for always leaving the water running after robbing a house. Around the holidays when burglaries most often occur, Harry poses as a police officer to check out the security of a suburban neighborhood to make sure they are taking the proper precautions, when really he and his partner plan to rob them when they're away on vacation. But the two bumbling bandits don't count on an eight-year old mistakenly being left behind and will stop at nothing to defend his home. Played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern in the 1990 family comedy Home Alone and its 1992 sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
