Our Score
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.


Cheeky eight-year-old Alex Pruitt is delighted to be given a remote-controlled toy car by his neighbour - unaware it contains a stolen microchip. A gang of crooks heads to Alex's town with the intention of recovering the valuable item, but the resourceful youngster has prepared for their arrival with a series of nasty booby-traps. Comedy sequel, starring Alex D Linz, Olek Krupa, Rya Kihlstedt and Lenny von Dohlen.
