In the absence of Macaulay Culkin, cute little Alex D Linz plays the resourceful youngster who's on his own in the house, where he fends off an international espionage team trying to steal back a top-secret computer chip hidden in his new toy. Pity the hapless baddies as the plucky boy devises ingenious booby traps and performs engaging heroics to foil them. Writer John Hughes's third neatly plotted variation on the same theme is good knockabout fun, with Linz a winning replacement for Culkin. There are some genuine laughs, and not too much saccharin or cartoon-style brutality.

Plot Summary

Comedy starring Alex D Linz. Young Master Pruitt is at home with chicken pox, but he's not going to be alone for long. Following a baggage mix-up, a stolen computer chip is hidden in one of his toys and four industrial spies are determined to get it back.
