Editorial Reviews

In this hilarious holiday tale for all ages, 10-year-old Finn Baxter (Christian Martyn) thinks his family's new house in Maine is haunted - but the truth might be even scarier! A trio of thieves (led by Malcolm McDowell) is after a priceless painting hidden in a secret room by the previous owner. So when Finn and his sister (Jodelle Ferland) find themselves home alone, Finn rigs up an elaborate array of techno-gadgets and booby traps to protect his pad from the bumbling criminals trying to break in. It's a delightful comedy caper that will steal your heart again and again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Home Alone 5: The Holiday Heist December 7, 2013
Format:DVD
Home Alone 5: The Holiday Heist (2012). I have seen Home Alone 1, 2, and 3 when they were originally released at the movie theaters. I have also read the novelization of Home Alone 1 and 2 back in 1990/1992. All three films were great, and I always enjoyed the plots of Home Alone 1-3. However the 4th installment from 2002 was a complete total embarrassment. Home Alone (5): The Holiday Heist released in 2012 (as straight-to-TV) goes back to its roots a little bit, and is pretty good (although not great). It's obvious by the quality that this film was made for television, but it's still not half bad. I'll admit the acting by the parents are a little over-the-top at times, and this film is nothing in comparison to the first Home Alone (1990) film. Yet, this film still isn't bad or stupid. Malcolm McDowell, best known from the films "A Clockwork Orange" (1971) and "Time after Time" (1979), perfectly plays the main villain in this film, and like Joe Pesci from "Home Alone 1", is actually an intelligent villian. The other two villains are a little silly/dimwitted - the producers could of casted much better in that area. Home Alone 5: The Holiday Heist seems to copy the plots of Home Alone (1990) and Home Alone 3 (1997). I don't want to give away spoilers, but If you (recently) seen both Home Alone 1 and 3, you'll understand what I mean. This film is almost like a remake of sorts; mixing the plots of Home 1 and 3 into one film. It's the type of movie to watch on a rainy day, or while putting up the Christmas tree, or when it's on television. It doesn't have the funny laughs that Home 1 and 2 had or even Home Alone 3. This film is nice, enjoyable, but at the same time doesn't hold up to Home Alone 1-3. But, I don't believe any sequels or spinoffs can hold up to the first film. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars A disaster... December 30, 2013
By Rick
Format:DVD
...and that's putting it mildly. Terribly written, terribly acted. What a mess. Such a shame to see Malcom McDowell participate in this shameful excuse of a movie. I sat stone-faced thru the whole thing, I don't think I cracked a smile once. The kids weren't even entertained. Out of coal? Put this in someone's stocking instead.

3.0 out of 5 stars O, But Not as Good As Original November 5, 2013
Format:DVD
My kids liked the first two Home Alone movies, but I have to be honest and say that they were luke warm to this one. Not that there was bad acting or anything, just a bit weaker plot and a story line that seems to keep coming back in these movies. We didn't think that it was as funny as the original movies and our young daughters were actually a bit scared when it came to the idea of ghosts. While in the end this is a good family movie, it just was not the same as the original cast and family from the first round of movies.

2.0 out of 5 stars Can give this one a miss. December 28, 2013
By Dan Mx
Format:DVD
Wasted an evening watching this with the family. There were maybe two laughs for all of us the whole movie. Its very much a letdown. The humour in this series is by now way too predictable and the plot was totally unbelivable. This just shows what a comical genius Macaulay Culkin was in this series to keep carrying it along every movie, nobody else can pull it off but him.

3.0 out of 5 stars Half-Interesting Installment In An Already Bad Franchise. December 20, 2013
By HAMLET
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Note: I saw this movie with XFinity On Demand.

Thie (hopefully final) installment in the Home Alone franchise is a made-for-television film which has at least a better premise than the atrocious Home Alone 4 (only Macualey Culkin can play Kevin, and only Daniel Stern can play Marv). I liked the groundwork of big sister/little brother left alone in the house, but their relationship seemed devoid of love or compassion until the final scenes, which disappointed me greatly. Adding the six-year old girl was a nice touch, but she was under-used. With a better script, the fifth film could really have breathed life again into a series that began dying with Home Alone 4.

Stick with the first three films, skip the fourth one and see this one once.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ewwww! November 1, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a disgrace to the first two, but that's an adult point of view. ( why didn't the bad guy just buy the house or tell the family his stuff was in the house! Movie over!!) dumb. My son on the other hand looses all the home alone movies even the other train wrecks 3 and 4. He's literally been waiting for this movie to be released on DVD. Needless to say I bought it as a gift. To each his own. That's all I can say.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gone too far January 31, 2014
By Sue
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Home Alones where so good and then they had to make this one. This is the worst movie and I hope people do not judge the others by this one . if you have never seen Home Alone see the others and skip this one.
