Storyline

Two ex-cons, Harry (Aiello) and Roy (Pantoliano) execute a robbery they think will net them $250k. When they find the safe empty, Roy, decides to kidnap Gary, the eight year old son of their victims. Gary's hypochondriac mother has told the boy he is allergic to everything, keeping the lad from having a pet, going anywhere or doing anything. The boy is even home schooled and therefore has no friends his own age. When frustrated Roy wants to hurt and later kill the boy, Harry protects and then runs off with the kid leaving Roy tied up. Naturally Roy is angry, and being rather psychotic, he comes after Harry for revenge. Meanwhile, Gary has formed a strong attachment to Harry and the two have a wild adventure and wind up hiding out at a motel owned by a former sixties flower child. She falls for Harry and wants to help him escape the law. Then trouble starts from two directions and Harry must make a difficult choice about the future - both his and young Gary's.

Unfairly compared to HOME ALONE
8 July 2000 | by (Orlando, FL) – See all my reviews

This is not as bad a film as I had been led to believe by Maltin's review, and definitely is not an attempt to "cash in" on "HOME ALONE." The "Kid," an only child whose well-to-do parents are too absorbed in their own activities to spend any time with him, delights in the attention he gets from one of his two kidnappers, and the pair become "buddies," the kidnapper and Kid on the run from the police and FBI, with the Kid enjoying the attentions of his buddy (called "Gramps" by the Kid in one scene) as the two "head for Mexico" with the kidnapper's abandoned partner, the Kid's parents and law enforcement in pursuit. Not a great film, but a nice diversion for an afternoon, with a fun Bob Cobert score, nice photography and some amusing scenes for the Kid. (As far as comparisons to other films, it has more in common with Curtis' own "THE GREAT ICE RIP-OFF" than "HOME ALONE.")
