Storyline

When 10-year old Olivia's Mom goes on a business trip for the weekend, she leaves Olivia home alone with her 17-year-old brother Miles in charge. The first night, Olivia falls asleep on the couch, and wakes up, not realizing how late it is. She walks her dog Charlie without Miles knowing, and witnesses a young woman being kidnapped on the empty New York City streets. Olivia runs home and tells Miles, but he doesn't believe her. The next morning, she explains what happened to local cops, and they don't believe her either! Only a cynical female detective named Dottie (played by Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon) listens to Olivia, but she too is skeptical. Undaunted, Olivia bravely launches her own investigation, putting herself into perilous situations. Her can-do spirit ignites one extraordinary adventure after another. Can she outwit the bad guys and convince her brother and Dottie of the truth in time to save the day?

Fun and funny
30 August 2016 | by Andrew GrossSee all my reviews

This movie is just plain fun in a way the movie critics don't seem to understand. It's like Home Alone for a new generation - speaking of which, that movie didn't get such great reviews when it came out, and it's now an absolute classic. It's a premise that's exciting for kids - the young girl is left alone, witnesses a kidnapping, and has to solve it all on her own. The girl is terrific, not to mention Susan Sarandon, who plays the role of the seasoned detective just right. And as a fellow New Yorker, you've gotta love all the authentic locations, especially the big scene on the Staten Island Ferry. Very enjoyable and funny film - you'll definitely get your money's worth.
