    Synopsis


    Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
    John Hughes and Chris Columbus repeat their best-selling formula from the first Home Alone film with this sequel. Once again Kevin McCallister's (Macaulay Culkin) family leave him behind, only now he gets on a flight to New York instead of going with his family to Miami. Kevin manages to hail a cab and is delivered to the doorsteps of the Plaza Hotel, where, using his father's credit card, he rents out a suite and has the time of his life -- although a smarmy hotel clerk (Tim Curry) and bellboy (Rob Schneider) eye him with suspicion. But ingenious Kevin keeps them at bay, using the same tomfoolery he applied to his uncle in the first picture. He takes time out from his consumer debauch to chat with a friendly old toy-store magnate (Eddie Bracken) and pontificate to a homeless Pigeon Lady (Brenda Fricker) on the meaning of Christmas. But then he runs into his old enemies Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern).When he finds out that they plan on robbing the old man's toy store on Christmas Eve, he mans the battle stations once again, complete with electric prods, flames of fire, and sundry blunt instruments. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

      Home Alone Again...in the Big Apple This Time

      What is with this kid Kevin? It seems he can never take a normal vacation. If you are a fan of "Home Alone," which unleashed Macauley Culkin on the world, then this second helping of Stooges-style slapstick will go down as dessert after a meal of ice cream and cake. The same cast is back: Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern as the doofus criminals Harry and Marv, John Heard and Catherine O'Hara as Kevin's benignly oblivious parents, all the brothers and sisters and cousins (including Macauley's kid brother Kieran, who will soon replace him as THE child star in the industry, as bed-wetter Fuller). Only this time the action moves to New York City, when Kevin gets separated from his family in the airport and boards the wrong plane. The comic mayhem that ensues involves Tim Curry and Rob Schneider as over-matched staff at the Plaza hotel, Oscar-winner Brenda Fricker as a homeless woman, and Hollywood icon Eddie Bracken as a toy store tycoon who takes a grandfatherly interest in precocious Kevin. John Hughes wrote and produced again, and Chris Columbus directed again--so this is pretty much the same movie as the original. That said, considering the studio went to this well for three more sequels, "Lost in New York" looks like "The Godfather Part II" compared to what will follow. Enjoy.

      Good movie, MAY NOT PLAY ON OLDER PLAYERS

      The movie is a worthy follow-up to the original Home Alone. Others have commented on that, so I won't. But, regarding the blu-ray disc itself, it does not play on my older Sony BDP-N460 player running the latest available firmware (version M02.R.195). This is a 2009 model of blu-ray player and has never had an issue with a disc until now. The disc played fine on a newer Panasonic player, model DMP-BD65, purchased in 2010. I have seen the same problem reported on another review sites. My disc has a blu-ray "Cat #: 2331417" on the bar code and a bar code # 0 2454307683 4.

      Yep. I laughed almost as hard at this sequel as I did the original. For the same reasons that I laughed at Bugs Bunny Wile E. Coyote, & Road Runner and Daffy Duck. Slapstick comedy is funny, Pesci & Stern are just as funny in round two, as is Macauley, and Tim Curry is an excellent addition to the cast. I was SLIGHTLY less sympathetic to the character this time around as he's more of an obnoxious little kid, than in the first movie, but his "redemption story" came through. It met my expectations for a good funny movie.

      A Worthy Sequel to a Christmas Classic

      Is Home Alone 2 an obvious effort to cash in on the great success of the first film? Undeniably. But there is still plenty of heart and humor infused into a tale that all-too-closely mimics the formula of its predecessor. I realize Home Alone 2 itself is not a classic, but this sequel still gives me the holiday feels. The great weakness of this Bluray release is that its sole special feature is a theatrical trailer. So don't pay more than $10 for this edition.

      As Good as the First

      The Blu-ray transfer of this John Hughes Christmas favorite isn't much of an improvement over the Widescreen DVD. It seems to be produced from the same master so don't expect it to be brighter, more colorful or much sharper, though they did remaster the audio in 5.1 dts-MA. It doesn't offer any extra content. It does, however include DVD and digital copies. So, all in all it's worth paying a couple of bucks more than the standard DVD edition.

      Not as good as the first Home Alone but still a great Christmas classic, Kevin manages to get the best of the now Sticky Bandits in New York. I have no idea how Marv and Harry are alive at the end of this one. What Kevin does to them at the construction site is beyond brutal. Your kids will love it!

      Kevin encounters all types of people in this great follow-on to Home Alone. The store owner (played by the wonderful Eddie Bracken) demonstrates the durability and talent of a long-time comedic actor. The story, while not as earthshaking as the first, will tug your heartstrings. The episode with the bird lady is tender.
