Trivia

Chris Columbus recalls during filming, "I was up on 140th Street in Harlem. It was three in the morning, and I was walking to get a cup of coffee. These two young kids come up to me and they said, "What's the name of the movie?" I said "Home Alone 2" and they said, "What do you do?" and I said "I'm the director", they said, "Oh, you're John Hughes". See more »

Goofs

The lady that told Kevin he is in New York should had not ignored Kevin when he whispers he is alone again. In fact the lady should had asked Kevin where his family were and she may have managed to alert the police in Florida and get him a plane there. See more »

My personal favourite of the franchise
5 February 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

The first Home Alone is very good indeed. The last two are just wannabes and feel like they don't belong. Home Alone 2 is my personal favourite, and I watch it about once a month. The only problem is that the jokes are basically retreads of the first movie, but believe me, they're miles better than the ones in the fourth ( which is one of the worst movies ever) This is still a very solid film, that gets slow in the second half. The performances are excellent. Macaulay Culkin brought a lot of charm to almost all the movies he's been in. Just a shame, he isn't acting any more. Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern are hilarious, as always. Catherine O'Hara and John heard are amiable as the parents, while the wonderful Tim Curry gives a hilarious performance as the Concierge. My favourite scenes were the bathroom scene in the hotel, and when the staff are held hostage by a television. Just priceless. Eddie Bracken and Brenda Fricker also make appearances, and their scenes are touching, as they are of friendship and acceptance. I absolutely adored the soundtrack too, New York looks splendid and the Plaza Hotel was incredible to look at. Brilliant movie! 9/10. Bethany Cox
