Instead of flying to Florida with his folks, Kevin ends up alone in New York, where he gets a hotel room with his dad's credit card—despite problems from a clerk and meddling bellboy. But when Kevin runs into his old nemeses, the Wet Bandits, he's determined to foil their plans to rob a toy store on Christmas eve.
Chris Columbus's "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" could be easily written off as a sequel whose only purpose is to replicate the look, feel, story, and general cartoony shenanigans of its predecessor while filling the coffers of all those involved in its making. To be honest, that is what the film is. However, on its way to printing money by exploiting the success of the original film, the sequel winds up a raucous experience that revels in its own delicious absurdity. It may not be an organic continuation of the McCallister saga, but it is a ridiculous amount of fun.
A year after the events of 1990's "Home Alone," the sequel finds Chicago's McCallister clan, once again, separating…
Review In A Nutshell:
It is rare for nowadays for sequels to be more impressive than its original, but every once in a while something comes and manages to surprise us. Home Alone 2: Lost In New York may not be an ideal example to emphasise this statement, but I personally feel this to be so. If you have read my review for the original film, you can see that it is not very positive, feeling underwhelmed due to its unlikeable leading character and the mischievous adventures he gets himself into during the early parts of the film, only to be redeemed by its brilliant final 30 minutes, displaying the best of physical humour.
The greatest of sequels are regarded…
Pretty much everything I said about the first movie applies here, since Lost in New York is a beat-for-beat rehash of its predecessor. It’s the exact same motherfucking movie, only this one is larger, longer, and worse. Obviously the premise is the same, albeit transplanted from a big house to the big city, but so is the wish fulfillment, the trap-setting, the lesson-learning, and the bond with a soft-spoken loner. The recycled pranks (a mannequin’s silhouette, a gangster movie’s audio) start looking awfully rusty. The sequel dedicates even more time to bald sanctimony, affirming Kevin’s “good kid” status with scene after scene of putrid treacle. It was enough to sour me on the movie by the time it reached its…
what the fuck have we done, america
I assumed this film would merely nod its head at its prequel but lack all the essential qualities that made the first one great.
What Chris Columbus has actually done is take everything that was special about Home Alone, move it to New York and add extra helpings of laughter and fun. I couldn't possibly say which one I prefer - they'll both be in my Top 100 Favourite Films until I die.

im of the opinion the sequel was better than the original
I'm the peigons
The parts that particularly excited my 10 year old sister:
- The twin towers
- Donald Trump
- The baddies getting hit in the face with bricks, heavy piping etc.
Five stars from her.

"Merry Christmas you filthy animal"
Kicking off Christmas this year with an old classic I shall now proceed to watch all the Christmas movies ever made.
I genuinely think this film is funnier than the first. The level of ruthlessness on the traps in incredible. A true childhood Christmas classic.
Just like the first one. Just like it. Which was good. Except in New York this time.
Despite Trump's bad policies, you know he's a bad person because he didn't help a lost kid in New York.
What an asshole.
Sports a very successful formula for comedy. Enjoyable and pretty damn hilarious.
