One year after Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) was left home alone and had to defeat a pair of bumbling burglars, he accidentally finds himself stranded in New York City - and the same criminals are not far behind.
It is Christmas time and the McCallister family is preparing for a vacation in Paris, France. But the youngest in the family, Kevin (Macaulay Culkin), got into a scuffle with his older brother Buzz (Devin Ratray) and was sent to his room, which is on the third floor of his house. Then, the next morning, while the rest of the family was in a rush to make it to the airport on time, they completely forgot about Kevin, who now has the house all to himself. Being home alone was fun for Kevin, having a pizza all to himself, jumping on his parents' bed, and making a mess. Then, Kevin discovers about two burglars, Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern), about to rob his house on Christmas Eve. Kevin acts quickly by wiring his own house with makeshift booby traps to stop the burglars and to bring them to justice.Written by
Almost every piece of furniture and decor in the McCallister home (including the wallpaper, carpet and tile) contains the colors red and green. See more »
The iron Marv pulls down has round holes, but the imprint it leaves on his face has rectangular ridges rather than round ones. Since the ridges on his face are caused by the holes in the iron, the shapes should match. See more »
You bomb me with one more can, kid, and I'll snap off your cajones and boil them in motor oil!

On most television airings, Buzz's line "I wouldn't let you sleep in my room if you were growing on my ass," has "ass" dubbed over with "butt". See more »
Home Alone has a rather thin plot but makes up for it with all that cartoon-like violence. Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern give wonderful performances and are the best thing in this movie. Macaulay Culkin is an okay actor, nothing special, but okay. Home Alone is best watched during the holidays. That is when it can be most enjoyed.
