Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
1992
**½
Director: Chris Columbus
Cast: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, John Heard, Tim Curry, Brenda Fricker, Catherine O’Hara

The McCallister family attempts to make another Christmas trip, this time to Florida, but the 10-year-old Kevin gets lost at the airport and ends up alone in New York City, where he runs into a familiar pair of burglars who have just escaped from prison. Home Alone was a massive sleeper hit, and the sequel sticks close to formula. The film is quite entertaining but it doesn’t offer a single surprise. Home Alone 3 (1997) doesn’t feature Macaulay Culkin.
