The sequel to the huge 1990 hit, Home Alone sees Kevin Mcalister (Macauley Culkin) once again being ‘Home Alone’, this time in New York after he got on the wrong flight. He soon makes the most of it though by checking in to the poshest hotel (on his dad’s credit card) and comes face to face with the Wet Bandits and has to evade and then trap them just like in the first movie.
