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.
