Did You Know?


The role of Alex was a coveted one, with over 100 kids trying out for the part. Alex D. Linz won the part, beating another child star, Philip Petrie, who had also tried out for the part of Sammy in One Fine Day (1996), a role taken by Alex D. Linz. See more »


When the police arrive for the first time, they kick down a door that instantly triggers the burglar alarm. This setting can only be used if someone is home while the system is armed, otherwise it must go through a "countdown" to allow the owner to disarm the system. See more »

Earl Unger: Do you think this really matters? Chip's in the car. We're at the airport in 45 minutes.
Peter Beaupre: Where's Alice?

Peter Beaupre: There's a woman in the house. I'll go back in and deal with her. Get the chip.

It's not the same.
19 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Has the same title only this ain't the Home Alone you'd all be familiar with.

No one from the original is in it. And the plot to it isn't as amusing as the first 2 were.

This one has to do with some secret group of agents accidentally misplaced there product at the airport which has some important chip in it that's top secret. They track down where the product is which is in Chicago, and located in somewhere in a neighborhood. 4 agents now have to check every house and find that chip.

A kid who's supposed to be the new version of Kevin has the chip only he doesn't know it yet.

He likes to watch neighbors with his telescope and goof around. When he notices the agents breaking into the neighbor's homes, he calls the police. When they get there they didn't find any of the intruders in the neighbor's home. When the agents plan on breaking into our main hero's home, he has to prepare himself to set up traps and give them hell.

This movie was good at first but it's not the same. Those who like the first 2 Home Alone movies, you might not like this one. Rent it first, and see for yourself.
