Storyline

Two young brothers talk their strict father Lloyd Clauswell into allowing them to babysit themselves for the first time while their parents attend a corporate barbecue. As Lloyd vies for a promotion from the eccentric company president Mr. Wellington, Lloyd's nemesis Skip Larue hatches a scheme with his sultry fiancé Patsy to frame Lloyd for embezzlement by hiding stolen cash in the Clauswell home. Beginning with an argument over who is really in charge, Matt and Robbie enlist their friends and nearly destroy the house as they battle for control. But they learn the real meaning of "blood is thicker than water" when they must join forces to stop the evil plans of Skip Larue. Police detective Palladino is left to sort out this mess of who did what to whom and why, as he finds out once and for all that when two brothers are left alone, Boys Will Be Boys. Written by Gregory Poppen <poppenpix@aol.com>

This is FUNNY!
13 August 2000 | by (KS) – See all my reviews

The plot of this movie is not very rigid, but that leaves lots of room for more hilarious antics than the first two Home Alone movies put together. (I'm not going to talk about 3 because I haven't seen it yet.) Except poor Skip (who looks a lot like Matthew Perry) suffered a lot more torture than Harry and Marv because it's two on one other than one on two.

Julie Hagerty wasn't really allowed to have as funny of a part as she did in Airplane!, and I was disappointed when the fight between Patsy, the Wellingtons, and the Clauswells ended so early. But oh well. This movie isn't called "Adults will be Adults." And I watched this movie at 3 in the morning, so it was constantly interrupted by infomercials. But what the heck. It's not the movie's fault, it's those ad companies.

Since this movie is mainly all antics, it didn't get much attention because most moviegoers don't like movies with all antics. Oh well.
