In it, Macaulay Culkin returns as Kevin. After two years of being treated kindly by his parents as an apology for leaving him home alone, he has become the alleged source of problems once again.
The film is different in that Kevin actually isn't "home alone" so to speak. He makes it to the airport for the family's Florida vacation. However, it's the wrong plane he boards. Kevin winds up in New York. Nervous at first, he realizes he brought his dad's luggage with him, and buys his way through Manhattan with his credit card, including an ill fated stay at the plaza hotel. (I find it interesting since I too had an unpleasant stay at the plaza last year, when they lost my only luggage, which was filled with thousands of dollars worth of cds). However, Marv (Daniel Stern) and Harry (Joe Pesci) are back on the streets, also in New York, and soon run into Kevin. You can basically tell what happens in here.
Overall, this film is very good. However, there is one reason this film doesn't get five stars or even four point five. That is because it does not have the warm holiday feeling the first one had. In fact, this film is darker than the first one. One good example is the confrontation at the abandoned house with Marv and Harry.Read more ›
The plot is pretty similar to the last one in many ways: Kevin gets into trouble due to getting into it with his older brother, and is punished. He gets fed up with his family treating him unfairly, and in the midst of his angst, wishes that he could have a vacation on his own, without any of his family. The next morning, in a frantic hurry, the family rushes to the airport to go to Florida for Christmas vacation. In the airport, Kevin stops to put some batteries into his small camcorder (which will be largely significant later in the film), and as soon as he lifts his head, his family are long gone. He spots an older guy from the backside who looks like his dad, and therefore gets on the same plane as this gentleman, believing that it really was his dad. Needless to say, he was in for a big surprise when the plane landed.
Meanwhile, the "Wet Bandits" (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) escape from jail, and are in the "Big Apple" as well. You know what happens: they cross paths, and these two clowns are looking for revenge. The slapstick craziness that was seen in the last film, is taken up an extra notch, and is made gut-bustingly funnier as a result. (And again, just listening to Daniel Stern's demented operatic-like screeching as he gets his, alone, just slams the wind straight out of me.Read more ›
