The next morning the family gets up late and are rushing to the airport. Keving trails behind and gets on another plane. Kevin arrives in New York and reliazes that he had took the wrong plane. he is thrilled, however his family is not.
The first thing that Kevin does is all the stuff that his parents won't let him do. He checks into a hotel, using his dads Visa. He then goes shopping at a toy store, with his dad's money. Kevin soon finds out that the wet bandants are in new York and that they are after him. This sends him on a chase.
This movie is a great movie and a fun movie which you can watch time and time again. It displays a perfect image of the Christmas craze we go through each year. I'd 100% recommend this movie.
What I didn't expect was Harry & Marv (Joe Pesci and the other guy) to not appear as much as the previous film. They appeared very rarely, and only came properly into the film later on. But they were as great as ever. Although's there's only so many times you can watch a guy get hit in the crotch, and still find it funny - but I cross my legs everytime, and I'm female! There were some funny bits when Kevin was throwing everything he could lay his hands on at them - the funniest I found was Marv getting covered in dust and then sneezing!
The fabulous Brenda Fricker plays a great role in this as the Bird Lady, who originally scares Kevin, but then they become friends. It's a small role, but she's suited to it - and she scared me too! :(
And of course, who could forget the brilliant Tim Curry? He pops up a lot in films, and I never seem to tire of him - except when he's in the bad guy role. He was brilliant in this, and so overly camp - can I please have a tape measure to see how high that hair is? The bit where Kevin's mum slapped him was classic - especially when he looked like he was going to cry.
You've got all the old characters from the previous film, who thankfully, don't get too much focus in the film - they really annoy me. But I suppose that's the point really.
Another great Christmas movie, with a sad ending, but the directors really should have known when to end - stop while they were ahead, and the formula doesn't become old and tired. Although Macaulay Culkin isn't in the next two, so that may make a difference - but the storyline is tired and overdone.
In another mad rush to the airport the MacCallisters make a point of remembering Kevin this time. But he gets lost in a crowd at the airport and follows a man who looks like his dad onto the wrong plane. 13 of the MacCallisters are going to Miami for Xmas (do they never stay home?) but Kevin is headed for the Big Apple. And he's going to have that once-in-a-lifetime vacation he's been wishing for.
There's much more for Kevin to see and do in New York. He scams his way into the Plaza hotel where a suspicious Concierge (Tim Curry) gives him mighty evil looks at every encounter. He goes to Duncan's Toy Chest, the biggest toy store in town and takes many scenic photographs. Though it is a little worrying now seeing Kevin on the roof of the World Trade Centre.
But the Wet Bandits have escaped. And they have just arrived in New York with loftier ambitions and bigger heists to pull off. They even brush by Kevin a few times not knowing he's there. Typically though, once they get a hold of him the give away far too much info. Once Kevin escapes he takes matters into his own hands once more. His Aunt Georgette from the first movie is still in Paris so he uses her half-renovated home as a huge mousetrap for the bungling burglars.
The booby traps this time are much more painful and nasty, so it's all the more amusing for us then huh? Who can possibly fail to laugh at Marv getting the shock of his life when he tries to turn on the taps? If the movie were to be released now I doubt if it would be let away with a PG rating. Still, it's nothing for any parents to worry about.Read more ›
"The finest in New York."
- This is just an idea of the great writing & acting in Home Alone 2:Lost In New York. This is the second of 4 movies by Chris Columbus. Lil' Kevin McCallister gets caught up in more trouble again in this sequel to Home Alone.
Home Alone 2:Lost in New York starts with the Christmas Pageant where young Kevin manages to get himself in a bit of bother with Buzz who manages to make Kevin look like a laughing stock in front of many parents. Buzz then makes a very phony,but convincing apology to the family who accept it (as idiots).As he brings this apology to an end,he calls Kevin a "troutsniffer". The acting in this film is pure brilliance,especially the parts of the two "Wet Bandits" played by Joe Pesci & Daniel Stern.This film is such a hilarious film especially with great actors such as Joe Pesci,Daniel Stern,Catherine O'Hara,Tim Curry,Rob Schneider & not forgetting the fine young actor Macaulay Culkin. If you like Home Alone 2:Lost in New York then you are bound to love Home Alone.Although Home Alone 3 & 4 are not worth seeing as they are not the originals with Macaulay Culkin & the original Bandits
