In this commercially successful sequel to the hugely popular original, it's a year later, and Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) is still treated lousily by his Chicago family, making him once again wish they'd leave him alone. Sure enough, when the family heads to the airport for a

vacation in Florida, they're in such a rush that they run too fast for Kevin, and he follows the wrong adult onto a plane bound for New York. Again, once he's realized his mistake, he happily adapts to the situation, touring the city and getting himself into a suite at the luxurious Plaza Hotel,

despite the suspicions of an officious concierge (Tim Curry). Meanwhile, Kevin's old nemeses, Harry and Marv (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern), have escaped from jail and are roaming New York, looking to rob toy stores and get revenge on the resourceful tyke.

HOME ALONE 2 pales next to its predecessor. For all its demerits, the first film did an astounding job of encapsulating a child's rage toward the adult world, with Kevin's sadistic treatment of the crooks a seemingly fair return for the treatment he'd been getting from grown-ups in general. The

second time around, everything seems forced. In addition, the film fails to make us believe that Kevin wants his family back the way he did in HOME ALONE. His life on the streets of New York seems almost idyllic, despite his problems with the two crooks.
