When I first became a SDMB member, I posted this question in General Questions, but got no definitive answer.
Hopefully, in this forum, with the many new mwmbers since my first posting, I'll get somewhere.


In Uncle Buck, John Candy's girlfriend, Amy Madigan,
is suckered into babysitting for Macauley Culkin.
She rings the doorbell... and gets no answer.
She steps to the side to peer into the window... and Mac
looks through the mailbox slot and sees no-one there.
Slot-flap closes, and Amy steps back to ring bell again.
She steps to window and flap opens again, and closes again.

Getting wise, she rings bell a third time and positions herself in front of mail slot.
When Mac opens the flap...he sees THREE pairs of eyes looking back at him!!

I already answered this for you once, dude. (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?threadid=61686)

It was a humorous device to show Miles's imagination. They did not represent real people. If you look closely, you will see that they are three swarthy men, and none of these men is Amy Madigan. They are also not Stern and Pesci, as someone guessed in the previous thread. I remember reading somewhere that the scary faces belonged to three guys from the crew.

Go back and watch the scene more closely!
