Trivia

This is the only film in the franchise, where Marv calls Kevin by name, and vice versa. See more »

Goofs

Design in the early 90s was usually edgy, not round. The movie therefore contains items from different parts of the 90s era or not from the 90s at all. Some of the items that don't fit the time frame are a flat screen monitor, a cell phone, a game console controller and steering wheel, a Hi-Fi mini-system, an AV Receiver under the gaming center, a computer keyboard next to Kevin's bed, and a minivan. Also, Kevin's PC is way too fast (286 or 386 that time). See more »

Quotes

Kevin McCallister: [after knocking out Marv and Vera] Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
Molly: [suddenly grabs Kevin from behind] Good night.
[Prescott knocks out Molly with a frying pan]

Worse than Home Alone 3
3 November 2002 | by (Bay Area, California) – See all my reviews

I found myself questioning the making of yet another Home Alone movie, let alone the making of another Home Alone movie that was to be made-for-tv, being skeptical i thought to myself "they must have a pretty decent script if theyre gonna attempt a made-for-tv sequel to what once was a pretty good franchise before it even was a franchise", but wow, this movie was awful, the young-uns might chuckle but the rest of the audience will be chuckling at the filmmakers.

Whoever was casting director should be fired, Kevins father was decent, well acted, but Kevin, who is now 9 when he was 10 in Home Alone 2, just isnt Kevin anymore, and who the hell decided to make Buzz around the same age as Kevin??? Marv wasnt too bad, but his character shouldnt have been brought back without Daniel Stern, but i give credit to Mr. Stewart.

Throughout the movie i kept asking why this movie was made, and in the beginning i thought i had the answer "What if we take the Home Alone series, and put Kevin in a technologically advanced house and see what he can do to one-half of the original bad guys?" this made me think the movie might actually be worth watching to see what kind of traps Kevin can create this time.

Basically, this movie sucks because he creates almost NO traps, there is a minor encounter in the beginning, and thats about it, Kevin ties together 2 or 3 pots, but thats IT, what the hell was this idiot director/writer/producers thinking, and to think that theyre couldnt possibly be a Home Alone movie worse than 3, at least that kid made some cool traps.
