A terrible "homage" to Home Alone
6 January 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

You'd think there'd be at least a decent plot since it's just a rip-off of a good movie, that there would be something to enjoy in this movie. Hahahahahahaha. They butchered it into an illogical series of events and poor timing, while also removing every bit of humor and fun Home Alone provided. The quintessential way to screw up any movie. The attempts to homage this film but actually just make you want to cry became superfluous within 20 minutes. This "subplot" the film so called has is unrelated and I'm not sure if it even is a subplot, maybe, quite possible, it's the main story. I just don't know, it's so stupid, bland, illogical, messy and every other word you can think of which insults a movie. You could get more out of looking at the roof of your bedroom while hitting yourself in the head wit a hammer. So if you had to pick go with the hammer. The "plot" was bad enough so lets get into what is even worse about this film.

The acting. You can't expect De Niro or Hanks but this is appalling. The kids are horrible, the "chemistry" is as believable as Anakin and Padme, actually worse in fact and the adults are either as bland as white bread or even worse then the kids. I wouldn't be surprised if the director walked outside his office and yelled "WHO WANTS TO BE A PART OF A TERRIFIC HOME ALONE HOMAGE" and that is how he got the cast because seriously my primary school play featured better performances!!!!!

The effects are well interesting to say the least. Not as bad as something like Jaws 3D but when it's worse than a 1927 movie (Metropolis) it has to be bad.

The sets are bland and boring and the cinematography was performed by either a chimpanzee or someone who's film knowledge of masterpieces include Shark Exorcist and Baby Geniuses. Seriously it's not even bad just plain unprofessional and painful to watch because of it. I don't know the budget of this film but when they can't fill coffee in a cup or put some luggage in the boot of a car!!! you know this was taking with no effort and just a cheap scam to rip off a good movie.

In conclusion you gain nothing from this movie. I wasn't expecting some brilliant film because ignoring the fact I found this "film" at the bottom of a supermarket basket at $2, just looking at the cover is enough. In fact some actors on the cover are different to the ones in the actual film. Think about that. This is just pathetic and sad. It's not even stupid enough to be just a joke, they were serious enough to try and make "quality" entertainment, cheaply by latching onto the fame and hype of a classic. It was done lazy and unprofessionally. Seriously don't bother with this movie, you'll actually lose intelligence and just thinking more and more mke me feel mor like dumb dumb movie bad.
