One year after Kevin McCallister was left home alone and had to defeat a pair of bumbling burglars, he accidentally finds himself stranded in New York City – and the same criminals are not far behind.
“Home Alone 2: Lost in New York” is a classic Christmas movie that was released in 1992. The movie is directed by Chris Columbus and stars Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, and Daniel Stern. It is the sequel to the popular 1990 movie “Home Alone.”
The story follows Kevin McCallister (played by Culkin) who accidentally boards a plane to New York City while his family flies to Florida for Christmas. Once he arrives in New York, Kevin finds himself staying at the Plaza Hotel and having to outsmart the same burglars, Harry (Pesci) and Marv (Stern), who tried to break into his house in the previous movie.
The movie is filled with classic slapstick humor and has a great message about the importance of family and standing up for oneself.
