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 »
At the toy store when Kevin is talking to Mr. Duncan at the cash register, Duncan asks Kevin about all the money in his envelope. As Kevin is taking money out of the envelope to pay for his things he later uses to lure Marv and Harry, he places the envelope on the counter. When the camera switches back to the counter, the only things on there are the map and Swiss army knife. When Kevin requested to make a donation to the toy store, the money envelope was back in his hand. In-between, however, there is a close-up of Mr. Duncan handling the money to put in the cash register. It is impossible for Kevin to take back the envelope of money off the counter. See more »
"Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" is young Macaulay Culkin's second greatest hour in the series as Kevin McCallister, who has to learn to be a man again on the mean streets of the Big Apple after being separated from his family once more. He checks into a swank Manhattan hotel (where Donald Trump is apparently staying at too). He's pursued again by comic bad guys Harry and Marv (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern), and director Chris Columbus and screenwriter John Hughes keep the action and laughs coming. Tim Curry also appears as a concierge who has to prove that Kevin is on his own, and Brenda Fricker is the pigeon lady who watches over Kevin's little shoulder. There is another tricks & traps showdown at the end, which keeps the slapstick and comic violence at an all-time high.
