Home Alone 2: Lost in New York Movie Review
Almost every Christmas season, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is being played in lots of movie channels and movie features in local/international TV usually along with the 2 other movies in the series. Home Alone 2 was released before Christmas of 1992 and is still one of the best movies. It features the majority of the actors and actresses found in the first Home Alone movie. It stars Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister, Catherine O’Hara, and John Heard as his mom and dad, and Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern as the antagonists. It was directed by John Hughes. You can watch this movie on almost every streaming platform and if you need help with that you can click on Watch your favourite CTV shows that way you will be redirected to the website where you can enjoy home alone series for free.
Home Alone 2 is set Christmas season which is a year after the first movie. This time, the entire family will be taking a Christmas vacation in Florida. Due to a bad wake up call, Kevin was left alone once again and this time, he found himself in New York. Unfortunately, Harry and Marv were able to free themselves from prison after they were caught in the first movie and they are in New York to look for better opportunities as bandits.
Join Kevin as he learns different values in life and how he meets a new friend. He’ll also run in trouble and cross paths once again with Harry and Marv. Watch him as he saves Christmas for other children and perform his wacky antics once more and how he finally meets up with his family to celebrate Christmas together.
Well, based on what I’ve observed, it is an excellent sequel with a very good twist in the story. Most of the characters in the first movie are included in this sequel as well and they’ve performed really went in this movie. Needless to say, they’ve complemented each other in the movie as well as the new characters Kevin will encounter.
This movie, however, is also targeted to kids as they will be able to learn different lessons and moral values. It’s a very good movie for the entire family to watch. I find its simplicity very pleasing to viewers of any age and it’s just plain fun to watch especially if you see how Kevin prepares for the new challenges. Well, if you’ve watched the first movie, you may have an idea of what’s going to happen near the end. There is not much of a mystery but all in all it’s still good.
It may really be old but it still has its charms as one of the best movies any time of the year besides Christmas season. It is still available in a lot of video stores on DVD. I just visited a couple of them lately in different malls and they are still on sale. The movie is also occasionally shown in different channels so grab the chance to watch Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
