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.

We remember Home Alone films mostly for their slapstick humor where a kid takes down burglars. They normally give a family message. It's obvious the moral of this Home Alone. In this digital age we live in, a lot of people are just not getting out into the world enough and so used to playing online games or using their phones as technology to text and look at messages from friends. It's cool and sad to think of what the world has come to since the first home alone came out, and we might wish to go back to the older days when this wasn't so much the case. It's obvious that the producers of this film probably expecting mostly kids to watch it, not only intended to have a holiday season movie, but intended to give a message to kids how they should put away their technology from time to time, and live in the real world, do things with their family and friends outside. So, I have to say I'll give this film a 3/5. I think it's getting annoying how many Home Alones have been made since the original, just because they have slapstick humor. But, I appreciate the message they gave, it works so well in today's world. This might be an ok film to watch during the holiday season to get you into the holiday spirit, it's a little funny too.
