Kevin's parents questions the Plaza staff about how they would let a kid check in a by himself, but the staff for some reason never mention the fact he had them convinced his father was staying with him.

I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 (C H R I S T M A S ) MOVIES AND SPECIALS.
BEWARE OF SOME REVIEWERS THAT ONLY HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I AM HONEST! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN! I HAVE DISCOVERED MANY GEMS IN MY QUEST TO SEE AS MANY Christmas MOVIES AS I CAN.
After the Original "Home Alone" became the 3rd highest grossing film of all time it was just a given that there would be a sequel and 2 years after the release of "Home Alone" 2oth Century Fox Released "Home Alone 2" and it was also known as "Home Alone 2: Christmas in the Park"
After snarky youth Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) loses track of his father at the airport, he mistakenly gets on a plane headed for New York City -- while the rest of the McCallisters fly to Florida. Now alone in the Big Apple, Kevin cons his way into a room at the Plaza Hotel and begins his usual antics. But when Kevin discovers that the Sticky Bandits (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) are on the loose, he struggles to stop them from robbing an elderly man's toy store just before Christmas.
None of the charm that made the original so much fun is even present here. This is a sub-par sequel that had no heart and no soul. It was a money grab. Overtime the film has fallen out of public's eye. You will see the original again & again but this sequel is not worth a repeat viewing.
