Product Description

Amazon.ca

Here's a perfect movie for kids, who never seem to tire of John Hughes's sure-fire slapstick formula. Working yet another variation on his mammoth 1990 hit, writer-producer Hughes (regarded by many as Hollywood's antichrist) strands a youngster in his own home with the chicken pox in this 1997 retelling. While his parents go to work, he sees a team of burglars invading the neighborhood houses; in fact, they're spies, looking for a toy containing a stolen microchip. The inevitability of the finale--one kid holding off four professionals with toys and garden tools--will do nothing to lessen the amusement of youngsters, who love to see the bad guys get creamed. Adults may pause at the sadistic nature of some of Hughes's pranks, but kids will eat up the image of one of their own outwitting all the adults. --Marshall Fine

Is there really a good reason to trash this movie? Sure, Home Alone 3 is a whole new story with a different family but c'mon... how much more could the original plot have gone on with the McCallister family and the Wet Bandits? This movie delivered what the previous Home Alones had: a good story, humor, creativity, and four crooks opposed to just two. If you keep an open mind and not criticize this movie for not being related to the first two, then you will definately enjoy Home Alone 3. It's too bad Home Alone 4 wasn't a continuation of this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Home Alone 3 is better than 1 and 2 July 4 2004
Format:DVD
I was little sceptical in watching Home Alone 3. Because the reviews and ratings at amazon.com were not as good in comparison to the previous two movies.
However, I enjoyed it even more than the earlier ones.
It moves at a fast pace. It is fresh. New kid. New villains. High tech Gadgets. What is common is that the villains have a tough time here too.
If you have liked the previous two movies, there is no reason why you should not like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Home Alone 1 and 2 Combined April 2 2004
Format:DVD
I could never stand HA 1 & 2, more direct I thought Macaulay Culkin
was just horrible and overrated. The story is a classic and it is always fun to watch kids outsmartting adults, the pranks are just great. This movie should have been called "The Real Home Alone - what the first two were not".
Basically the point of this movie as well as the others is for the viewer to have a fun time. Culkin, kills the first two and makes for an unenjoyable experience. Alex D. Linz in HA3 is adorable, and makes the move a joy to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the bunch Nov. 12 2003
Format:DVD
I liked Home Alone. I loved Home Alone 2. I didn't think anything could possibly top the sight of Tim Curry on his knees telling a fictitious hotel patron that 'he loved him'.
Boy, was I wrong.
Many people seem to have taken issue with Home Alone 3 because it does not follow on directly from the 2nd film in the series. Really, is that such a huge deal? If anything, it's what made this movie work. They didn't try to make another 'Kevin' story, but went for something totally different, just using the same plot - David vs. Goliath in a house of horrors that David set up.
And as for trashing Alex D. Linz in the role, please.... At least this child could act. My biggest gripe with the first two Home Alone movies was that Macauly Culkin constantly sounded like he was reading his lines straight out of the script, rather than something that was rehearsed.
But back to the story. The premise of this tale is that four criminal masterminds have obtained a stolen chip, with the intention of selling it to a mega-rich (mega-dangerous) buyer.
Through a totally plausible mix up at the airport, the chip (which is hidden inside a remote controlled toy car) ends up in the hands of an elderly lady. The crooks chase her all the way back to Chicago to try and recover the chip and save their own rear ends.
This is another factor which worked well for the movie. Whereas with the first two films, it was funny because Harry and Marv were such an obvious pair of morons. The four crims in HA3 are supposed to be smart, which makes it so much more delicious when Alex makes idiots of them.
The hero of the story, Alex, is by himself not through any family holiday mix-ups, but rather because he has chicken pox, and both parents have to work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Home Alone 3 Aug. 3 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I did not agree with the theme of this movie. I believe there is entirely too much said about the topic of criminals and children. Children under the age of ten may find it entertaining, however.

3.0 out of 5 stars Give Alex A break. He tried his best. July 22 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
O.K. I'll admit that Home Alone 3 wasnt as good as the first two. But DAMN PEOPLE. Alex tried his best. Give him that at least. The movie was kind of funny. I read some other reviews about how Mac. was better than Alex. Of Course. Nobody's better than the original. But give Alex his props for trying his hardest. Alex for sure has mine for stepping up. Not many would've done that I'm sure.

1.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely terrible threequel. April 20 2003
Format:DVD
I don't really care that this movie was made. However, when I saw it this was not the case. I was the biggest fan of the first two Home Alones, and that caused me to dispise the 3rd one for ever being made.
It had nothing that made the other two movies attractive to me. The John Williams music, The acting, the house that is located near Chicago and had a certain symbolism--all of these were missing from the 3rd one. It was a totally different movie that seemed to keep the plot but changed the whole mood.
Absolutely terrible, and I stand by this assessment. Especially if you are a Home Alone fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overdone. April 12 2003
Format:DVD
This franchise is completely overdone. They should never have made a third one. It just doesn't work. The worst part is this movie is actually a good movie. The bad part is that this movie is part of a series known for it's greatness. If you'll notice, the director of the first two (Chris Columbus) did NOT return for this one, and that it is under new direction. This may be part of the problem, but the biggest problem is that you'll just be shaking your head at how unrealistic it was. Two burglers are different than 5 FBI-wanted criminals, who are dealing with missiles. It just doesn't make sense. The lack of realism and the fact that this series should NOT have been made into a trilogy simply takes a lot out of this film.
Based on reading these reviews, people who like the first 2 seem to hate this one, and people who never saw the first 2 really like this. There are some exceptions, however. Basically, this movie would be much better if it was NOT part of the Home Alone series.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Movie That Shouldn't Have Been Made
Why did they make Home Alone 3 anyway? Home Alone 2 was very funny, but the first one was that much funnier. Basically, the series had reached its end. Read more
