More The Message Than The Movie
25 September 2014 | by (Allentown, PA) – See all my reviews

It seems like a lot of people are getting tired of the Home Alone movies, well they've gotten tired of them after the first 2. Now, the Home Alone movies are coming up with new plots and characters. However, I have to agree that these characters are less bratty than Kevin was, because Kevin was a brat in the first two movies. Anyway, I saw this movie two times, two years ago when it debuted and last year as we can expect the movie to be on during the Holiday Season. I'll tell you, this movie isn't too bad. I mean it's still entertaining, but more than the movie I feel like the lesson it leaves us is more important. I mean it had a nice family and a cool house. But, it left us and especially kids a more important lesson for 21st Century audiences. Obviously, we've been growing up in a digital age with so much digital technology. Some people like a guy in this movie Finn makes friends with, waste so much of their life on digital technology. It can be hard for kids to turn off video games as we see in this movie with the main character Finn, and his sister who likes texting listening to music with her Iphone. Also, when the first Home Alone movie was made we did not have so much digital technology, though we had more at the time than the first film shows, as it seems like the only digital thing Kevin does with his time in the first two Home Alone movies is watch TV. We can agree that life was more simple in the '90s. But, I believe the message this movie teaches you is about family. It also tries to teach you to turn off some of your digital technology and go outside, experience the real world. Another message it seems to leave with us is to appreciate other things in life besides money, like Art and again have family time. So, I might watch this movie again during the Holiday Season and if you like all the Home Alone sequels and slapstick humor, this movie is for you. I'll give it a 7/10 which would be a passing grade in a lot of schools and tests as it isn't bad and definitely leaves us with a good message, but we're tired of them coming up with so many Home Alone movies.
