Summary

After Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) loses sight of his father at the airport, he mistakenly gets on a plane headed for New York City. Now alone in the Big Apple, Kevin cons his way into a room at the Plaza Hotel and begins his usual antics.

Is The Plot Interesting?

The plot isn’t as strong as Home Alone and sometimes it does just take ideas straight from that first movie but overall it was solid. One of the things I really liked though was that they used the same villains because how unlucky can one kid be?

Is The Acting Good?

Macaulay Culkin makes a big returns as Kevin McCallister and gives an amazing performance. But best of all, I think we were all glad to see that Kevin hadn’t changed one little bit!

Is The Directing Good?

Chris Columbus is a genius at working with children on film sets. He gently supports Macaulay Culkin in getting the best performance out of him – as he does with all of the cast in Home Alone 2: Lost In New York.

Is The Cinematography Good?

Home Alone 2: Lost In New York has the same feel to it as Home Alone did and that was very important for the movie’s success because one of the things people liked about the first one was its energy.

Is It Worth Watching?

Of course Home Alone 2: Lost In New York is worth a watch, I think kids will once again love and relate to Kevin McCallister but it’s always using ideas from the first movie and it does become tedious after a while.

3/5

You can mess with a lot of things, but you can’t mess with kids on Christmas.
