Film Review

Yep, Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) has managed to ditch his family again, this time getting on the wrong plane and ending up alone in New York while they are heading for Florida. And, armed with dad's wallet, he enjoys all of life's luxuries at the Plaza hotel until he runs into those two inept burglars Harry and Marvin (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) once again. Unfortunately, what worked in the first film is not quite as entertaining here - instead of defending himself against the bumbling criminals, Kevin takes a great deal of glee in being maliciously abusive to both of them and, for an abandoned child, he does seem remarkably unshaken. Still, as slapstick escapism goes, this is well-engineered stuff, though it could have been so much better (and more believable) with a bit more heart.

Plot Summary

Sequel to the hit comedy, starring Macaulay Culkin and Joe Pesci. After becoming separated from his family en route to a Christmas holiday in Florida, Kevin McCallister finds himself alone in New York, where he's destined to meet two old enemies.
