Yawn. Poorly Filmed Snooze Fest.
So much average
It is neither dumb nor smart enough to be fun, and spends way too much time with its boring human characters.
It really had the exact same plot but it was executed far better
Essentially a beat-for-beat repeat of the first with only the 'home' swapped for a city, 'Home Alone 2: Lost In New York (1992)' suffers from a 'do-it-again-but-bigger' mentality and a slightly sillier approach but is still an endearing, funny and heart-felt flick perfect for all the family on any occasion. It's surprisingly entertaining despite its repetitive nature and features some extremely memorable set-pieces, some even sitting on par with those in the original. It isn't so much a drop in quality from its predecessor as it is an unnecessary addition, never quite as good but never much worse either. Oh, and those robbers are definitely dead now, even if they survived their last crossing with this kid. 7/10

I've always loved the first HOME ALONE film, ever since I was a kid, but I deliberately put off seeing this sequel after reading the negative reviews back in the day. Watching it now, as an adult, I can see what the reviewers meant: this is an insult, or indeed a kick in the teeth, to anyone who loves the first film.Given that the original movie was a smash hit, it was inevitably that a rushed-out sequel would quickly follow. And rushed out is right; this is a mere remake of the first film, albeit with a different setting (and nobody gets "lost" either, despite the title). The characters are all exactly the same, the gags are the same, everything's the same. A bigger budget doesn't mean improved quality; it means that everyone was in this to grab more dollars.It feels exactly like director Chris Columbus and writer John Hughes are going through the motions here. The bumbling villains are back and have even more ridiculous motives than previously. The crazy pigeon lady replaces the crazy old guy. Even the same TV gag is played out again. Hell, even the climax takes place in a house again, so the whole New York setting turns out to be a cheat. The whole sub-plot with the stressed out parents really drags things down a lot too.HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEW YORK isn't a total loss as a film, even though it's a crushing disappointment. It's hard to dislike Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern, two actors giving such physical performances. Tim Curry is a fun addition to the cast too. But Macaulay Culkin's self-knowing, superior attitude is becoming annoying already (and, indeed, his Hollywood star was to quickly wane after this) and there's absolutely nothing here that hasn't been done better previously. It's a real disappointment.
