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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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 morePublished on Nov. 24 2003 by mk915
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. Read morePublished on Aug. 3 2003 by Peggy Hendrick
