Audience Reviews for Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

½

Lost in New York is its predecessor in a different setting. But the heartwarming charm is still there and its this and a few new tricks up Culkin's sleeve that save it.

I don't know what some of you sick people out there are talking about....This is the blueprint of how to make a sequal....You do the same thing (cause that's what brough you succes in the first place)....but you change the playingfield....and add some new characters. That's exacly what's has been done here....and it's done to perfection....just as good as the first one...if not better...now he's got 2 teams against him....the thiefs...and the people at the hotel....AND! he's in New York....something gotta give!

Follow up to the very popular Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is basically the same idea, but with a different twist. The main character, Kevin McCallister is stranded in New York and has to outwit the burglars from the first film. As far as sequels are concerned, this sequel is just as good as the first, and that's rare. The cast of the first film returns in this sequel, and I think that's what makes this sequel work so well. Not only that, but the script is well written, and the gags are just as funny as the first film. The film doesn't do anything new, except that it changes the setting to New York. The film is very entertaining and manages to be funny and amusing. There's a good cast here, and this is a fun. I really enjoyed this film as much as the first, and though it doesn't anything too thrilling, this is still a fun comedy that the whole family will enjoy. As far as the humor is concerned, I felt that it was slightly better than the first. Screenwriter John Hughes gave a lot more emphasis on the humor and developed something a tad better. The first Home Alone was a good film as well, but this time around they managed to perfect the formula and create something more fun, and interesting. But both films are equally good, and I don't have a favorite. For a sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is better than your regular sequel, and manages to be a lot of fun, and entertaining for the family. Both films were great. I feel that the third doesn't really count because it was too dreadful. However, the first two Home Alone films are very good comedies.
