From Amazon.co.uk

This somewhat unpleasant 1992 sequel to the blockbuster Home Alone revisits the first film's gimmick by stranding Macaulay Culkin's character in New York City while his family ends up somewhere else. Again, the little guy meets up with colourful people on the margins of society (including a pigeon woman played by Brenda Fricker) and again he gets into a prop-heavy battle with Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern. The latter sequence is even worse than the first film in terms of violence inflicted on the two villains (director Chris Columbus, who also made the first film, can't seem to emphasise the slapstick over the graphic effects of the fight). The best running joke finds a concierge (Tim Curry) at the swank hotel where Culkin is staying trying and failing to prove that the boy is on his own. --Tom Keogh

Too many sequels suffer from Deja Vu. And hardly any of those carbon copies improve upon the original. Home Alone 2 is a carbon copy, but it's also much better and more complex a movie than the first. In another mad rush to the airport the McCallisters 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. Thirteen of the McCallisters are going to Miami for Xmas (do they never stay at 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. 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.

'Home Alone 2' is an exception in the movie world, it's one of those sequels that is every bit as good as the first, if not better.

The quite brilliant Macaulay Culkin reprises his role as Kelvin, whose family, as strange as it might seem, somehow manage to leave him 'alone'. He makes it to the airport this time, but whilst his family hop on the plane to their holiday in Miami, Kevin takes the wrong plane to New York City. Of course, resourceful Kelvin ends up having the time of his life in the big apple, but there are lots of twists, turns and adventures along the way. The rest of the main original cast are also in here, including the hapless bandits who have escaped from jail, as well as a wonderful part for Tim Curry as a hotel manager.

I love 'Home Alone 2', which was a tradition for years at Christmas in my house. I was pleased to finally scrap my old VHS and replace it with this DVD. It's funny throughout, particularly heart-warming towards the end, and just good fun. As the second doesn't follow on from the first, you can jump straight in and watch it without seeing 'Home Alone', but I can almost guarantee that you'll want to watch it more than once.

Kevin and his family are planning to go to Miami during the holiday season this time around.

At the airport, Kevin becomes separated from his family and ends up on an aeroplane to New York City.

Using his father's credit card, Kevin rents out a suite at the Plaza.

Kevin befriends E. F. Duncan, a friendly toy store owner, and a homeless Pigeon Woman then Kevin runs into his old enemies Harry and Marv, who have escaped from prison.

When Kevin discovers that Harry and Marv plan to rob Mr. Duncan's toy store on Christmas Eve, Kevin makes plans to stop them.

Kevin's mother, upon realising that she and the family have become separated from Kevin, frantically tries to find Kevin.....again...

It's more of the same here, but a lot more money has been thrown at it, because at the time of it's release, this movie was foolproof.

And if you liked the first one, you will like this, because nothing has changed.

But the film is all about the build up to the last thirty minutes, which to be honest, is the reason we all went to see this, because in all of us, there is a part where we want to see Pesci and Stern get trashed.

The rest of the movie is in three parts. We have Kevin and his Hi-jinks, The bandits planning a robbery, and the family trying to get Kevin back.

Simple by the numbers stuff, with a lot of sickly sugary messages which grate at times, but it's a Christmas movie, that everyone can enjoy.

It's coming to that time of year again, where we settle into our family traditions in time for Christmas. That, for me and my family, includes watching a whole host of varied festive films from the fabulous It's a Wonderful Life all the way to the charming Muppet's Christmas Carol. One such film is Home Alone 2, which although similar to its predecessor, is just different enough to be enjoyable in its own right.

Once again Kevin McAllister has a falling out with his family on the eve of a Christmas vacation, this time after an altercation with his brother Buzz that ends in disaster at a school choir service. Although this time Kevin makes it to the airport with his family he manages to find himself separated in the mad rush that ensues and flies to New York instead of the intended Florida. Using his astonishing ingenuity Kevin manages to check himself into a swanky hotel using his father's credit card and for a while he has a whale of a time in the Big Apple.

Of course, just as in the first film, things soon turn sour. After making fools out of the hotel staff for a few days Kevin's deception is eventually uncovered and he finds himself stranded in an unfamiliar city. To make matters worse, he bumps into Marv and Harry, the two clueless burglars from the first film who aim to rob a famous toy shop and steal a giant wad of money destined for a children's hospital. Oh, and murder Kevin in the process if they get the chance!

Infuriated by the criminal's heinous idea of robbing money destined for ill kids ("You can mess with a lot of things, but you can't mess with kids on Christmas!"), Kevin resolves to foil the plans of the two baddies using the semi-renovated house of his uncle Rob.
