Review

Our Score
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.

Summary

Hapless youngster Kevin somehow manages to catch the wrong plane and finds himself heading for New York, while his family jets off to Florida. Having got his hands on his father's credit card, he is enjoying the good life staying in a luxury hotel - until he bumps into two familiar burglars with an axe to grind. Comedy sequel, starring Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, Brenda Fricker and Tim Curry.
