Still hilarious after 15 years

I hadn't seen this movie in years, but it's still hilarious. Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is one of those classic comedies that will manage to make you laugh despite yourself. In fact, I'm surprised at how well it has worn the test of time. The movie is filled with great scenes and impeccable timing, sometimes approaching slapstick routines. The humor is good natured, but doesn't shy away from some curse words. Of course, Macaulay Culkin makes it all possible with his adorable acting and wisecracks ("I'm 10 years old, TV's my life"). Most people have probably already seen Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. If you have, I invite you to watch it again whenever you feel nostalgic (especially in light of the fact that Hollywood can't make good comedies anymore). If you haven't seen Home Alone 2: Lost in New York yet, you're in for a treat.

Merry Christmas, everyone!!      I saw this movie in theaters with my family back around Christmas of 1992, and being the easy-to-impress five year-old that I was, I loved the movie. Like the first Home Alone movie, I would spend the rest of my childhood loving this movie without giving it much deep thought. It wasn't until around two years ago that my fandom for this movie began to severely decline after applying good old logic to everything.      STORY   …

I loved this movie when I first saw it back in 1992, but in recent years, my tune changed a lot since then.      This movie is simply a contrived rehash of the first one, since the formula for the first movie is exactly the same as this.  Though what made the first one good is mostly absent in this, since the characters and storyline feel far less believable (it's like Kevin and his family resorted to being what they were like prior to the end of the first movie), and …

About this movie

Wiki

This somewhat unpleasant 1992 sequel to the blockbusterHome Alonerevisits the first film's gimmick by stranding Macaulay Culkin's character in New York City while his family ends up somewhere else. Again, the little guy meets up with colorful people on the margins of society (including a pigeon woman played by Brenda Fricker) and again he gets into a prop-heavy battle with Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern. The latter sequence is even worse than the first film in terms of violence inflicted on the two villains (director Chris Columbus, who also made the first film, can't seem to emphasize the slapstick over the graphic effects of the fight). The best running joke finds a concierge (Tim Curry) at the swank hotel where Culkin is staying trying and failing to prove that the boy is on his own.--Tom Keogh
