Christmas Marathon: Home Alone 2 Lost in New York (1992)


Director: Chris Columbus

Cast: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, Tim Curry, Rob Schneider, Catherine O’Hara, John Heard

A year after Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) was left home alone accidentally by his parents to defend his home from the Wet Bandits, Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern), this year the family is headed to Florida for the Christmas holidays.  This time, Kevin accidentally gets onto a plane to go to New York City.  As he is enjoying the benefits of the luxury life using his father’s credit card, he meets Harry and Marv, who has just broke out of prison.  At the same time, we have the Mr. Hector (Tim Curry) part of the hotel staff who suspects something isn’t quite right about a little kid staying at the hotel and trying to figure out whether Kevin is hiding something.  Meanwhile, Kate (Catherine O’Hara) and Peter McCallister (John Heard) try to search for their child as the whole family changes and flies back to New York City.  This time, Kevin has to protect a toy story, Duncan’s Toy Chest from Harry and Marv and try to stop them again and send them back into the hands of the police.

This is also a very entertaining movie.  I always like the first one more (Home Alone review is HERE) but this one is just as fun.  Kevin isn’t just protecting himself in an area that he knows but he’s stepping up and learning how to do good deeds for others and protecting someone’s else’s good.  Its a nice story. Kevin grows a lot more in this movie as he learns a few moral or virtues about life from the people he meets.  The scenes of escape is always fun and I always love how Harry and Marv just turn out to do the most stupid things when they think they are being smart.  The outcomes and how they turn out in the end are hilarious.

Home Alone or Home Alone 2? Which one do you prefer?
