Macaulay Culkin was given time to let his hair grow out in order to play Timmy Gleason. But as soon as filming was done, Culkin wasted no time in getting his hair cut back to the way it was. See more »
The list of coins shown in the printout during the opening credits are relatively common coins and as described with major flaws, would be a collection worth only a few thousand dollars-a far cry from the $1.5 million used in the storyline. The $20 gold piece shown in closeup during the credits is far from an un-circulted example, so it is a coin worth little more than the price of an ounce of gold. Also, if they removed the coins from their new PCGS holders and sold them "raw", whatever their value, they would be worth substantially less than as "certified" in the their holders. See more »
Man, that kid gets me so mad!
Yeah, but I think he has a good influence on me. Since he's moved in, the food's gotten much better.

The movie starts in pretty interesting fashion when Macauley Culkin is deposited on the doorstep of his father, Ted Danson, just as he and his mates are preparing for a heist. However, the movie soon degenerates into "Home Alone" style antics as the young son brilliantly outsmarts his father time and time again. This all seems very familiar. Eventually the movie ends after nearly 2 1/2 hours of capers and disbelief. I wish they had of keeped the son out of it- police trying to 'get even' with the crooks sounds like a much better movie.
