Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992)


The McCallisters are at it again; they’re leaving the wintery climate of Chicago in favor for a more tropical Christmas down in Florida. But when Kevin, having losing his party and following the wrong ‘dad,’ gets on the wrong plane… he’s all alone in New York. So he goes crazy: he stays in the lap of luxury at The Plaza, enjoys first-rate limo service and takes advantage of all the money he ended up having. But that soon changes when he runs into escaped thieves Harry and Marv… again. Now, he must stop them not only from stealing money from a charitable toy store but also from killing him. Much like the first, this one is very screwball and painful. It’s a childhood movie that I will always love. It has heart, humor, Kevin’s antics and that special John Hughes Christmas magic.
