Chicago-area band Enuff Z'nuff recorded their song 'Happy Holiday' to be used in the film, however the producers ultimately used Darlene Love's 'All Alone On Christmas,' so the band put the song on their "Peach Fuzz" album. It has also appeared on several "hair metal" Christmas compilations, including "We Wish You A Hairy Christmas" and "Monster Ballads Xmas". See more »
When Marv pulls the front door knob and the knob comes loose with several feet of string attached to it. He pulls it tightly with his back against the door and we hear the first staple shot. It's impossible for Marv to do a 180-degree turn and not hear the second shot. See more »
[talking to Peter McCallister, and finding out that Kevin has credit cards]
We'll notify the credit card companies immediately. IF you son has the cards, we can get the location on him, *when* and if he uses them.
No, I don't think Kevin even knows how to use a credit card.

Wow, it worked.

Better than the first and a really nice family movie
Home Alone was OK, but this was miles better, funnier, with a better plot. So they kept the same characters and there's a good performance from Tim Curry to help make it all the more enjoyable. I've grown up watching home alone. Whenever I think of my favourite films, i think Home Alone (the fourth the exception). Culkin gets on the wrong plane this time, an improvement from being left at home. He ends up in New York, comes across the same crooks and tries to get rid of them. Its just so watchable - a film i've watched more times than any other. How can anyone dislike it? OK, the fun factor kind of goes away the more times you watch it and the older you get but I still cannot praise it enough. Shame though, that Culkin threw away his career once he had the cash.
