An unabashed rip-off of "Home Alone", poorly done!
2 March 2002 | by nraokSee all my reviews

The stars (?) - Jones, Reinhold, and Howard must have been in dire need of new swimming pool liners to allow themselves to appear in this per- fectly dreadful and shameful rip-off of the Home Alone series. Even the voice-overs for the animals are off-character. The gag stunts, which are the raison d'etre of this genre, are pathetically uninventive and, for the most part, unfunny. Entertainment folk must eat like everyone else, but surely the people associated with this debacle could find some other means by which to fill their bellies than to empty those of unsuspecting viewers.
