In Home Alone (1990), Kevin says to Old Man Marley, "Yeah, I had a friend who got nailed because there was a rumor he wore dinosaur pajamas." At the end of this movie, Fuller is wearing dinosaur pajamas in their hotel room. See more »
When the thieves are crossing the street and bump into a lady, Marv says: "mon chérie". The correct expression should be "ma chérie" ("mon" is masculine and "ma" is feminine in French). However Marv is an idiot and it's completely in character for him to make that mistake. See more »
New York City-The Perfect Place For A Kid To Have Fun
If I was a young child and wanted to get lost somewhere, then the Big Apple would be my first choice. Yes, Macauley Culkin is back as Kevin McCallister who ends up getting split up from his parents and finds himself lost in New York.
Just like in the first film, Kevin has fun at first booking himself into a hotel (you'll find out how a young kid cons a room in the hotel) and has some fun. There's just one snag-Joe Pesci and Daniel Sterns are back as Harry and Marv and once again, young Kevin must outwit them.
The plot is pretty similar to Home Alone but don't let that put you off-it just means you've got more of the same thrills and fun to enjoy. Despite being lost in the city that never sleeps, Kevin again manages to find ways to outwit the relentless burglars who take countless bumps and bruises, many of which would have killed them but that's the fun of movies.
Yes, Home Alone 2 was a fantastic follow up to Home Alone and it was followed by the equally excellent Home Alone 3.
