Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Immediately following the scene with the pigeon lady in the concert hall attic, Kevin walks toward the railing and a boom mic is visible as a reflection in the window to the left of the screen. See more »

Home Alone 2
19 December 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have no idea quite why, but Home Alone 2 is my favorite movie of all time. I have the board game (made a while back), tons of books, the piano book as well which I play all year round and I've watched the movie about 80 times so far. I can recite every line and know pretty much everything bout the whole movie. There's just smoothing about this one that is so much better than the first. Perhaps it's just the whole New York scene and I think the bandits do better acting as well. I CANNOT stand Home Alone 3 though. They totally spoiled it and ruined the whole "Home Alone" title. The actors are terrible and the movies just plain sucks. If anyone wants to talk bout the movie with me, don't be shy.
