What to know

critics consensus

Macaulay Culkin's precocious charisma is sorely missed in this hollow sequel, which doubles down on the broad comedy while lacking all the hallmarks that made the original a classic. Read critic reviews

    Stupid, poorly acted, and poorly written, Home Alone 3 has got to be the worst installment in the series. Sure it was better than the 4th one, but that doesn't say much. It had it's funny moments here and there, so that's why I give it 1 1/2 stars. It makes me feel said how John Hughes would write a movie like this one. I hated every minute of it. More like a spinoff if you ask me. Looks like hollywood really did sold him out during this time. Roger Ebert was wrong about this one saying, "it's better than the first two." To me, it just sounded rediculous. The first two will always be better than this nonsense.

    Gosh, this is real bad, only watched it because of Lenny Von Dohlen. The choice of songs were bad, acting was bad, plot was bad, script was bad, camera work was bad, trap design was bad, actors looked bad. nothing good came out of this film, a pure time waster.

    Home Alone 3 steers clear of the mistakes of the previous films, and makes all new ones. Whereas 2 went too dark and violent, 3 goes too cartoonish and slapstick. Where the first film thought small, with just a pair of common burglars, 3 goes big, with a team of international terrorists. Still, the film's beginning shows some cleverness in setting up a new, original home alone situation, but it quickly devolves into garbage. The main problem with Home Alone 3 is that it's so pacified that it doesn't have the darkness or edginess needed to believe that these are real characters, or that this situation is dangerous.
