Trivia

During production, John Hughes wrote script drafts for a Home Alone 3 (1997) where Macaulay Culkin would return as a teenage Kevin McCallister, but when he found out Macaulay quit acting in 1994, he rewrote the story from scratch. See more »

Goofs

Kevin chases who he thinks is his dad through the airport and eventually bumps into the lady at the gate and drops his plane ticket which is lost amongst the ones the lady dropped. Later in the film when he leaves the hotel and bumps into Marv and Harry (the criminals) they find Kevin's ticket on the inside of his coat; this is not possible seeing as he lost it earlier in the film.

New York City-The Perfect Place For A Kid To Have Fun
18 November 2002 | by (Erdington) – See all my reviews

If I was a young child and wanted to get lost somewhere, then the Big Apple would be my first choice. Yes, Macauley Culkin is back as Kevin McCallister who ends up getting split up from his parents and finds himself lost in New York.

Just like in the first film, Kevin has fun at first booking himself into a hotel (you'll find out how a young kid cons a room in the hotel) and has some fun. There's just one snag-Joe Pesci and Daniel Sterns are back as Harry and Marv and once again, young Kevin must outwit them.

The plot is pretty similar to Home Alone but don't let that put you off-it just means you've got more of the same thrills and fun to enjoy. Despite being lost in the city that never sleeps, Kevin again manages to find ways to outwit the relentless burglars who take countless bumps and bruises, many of which would have killed them but that's the fun of movies.

Yes, Home Alone 2 was a fantastic follow up to Home Alone and it was followed by the equally excellent Home Alone 3.
