Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern are the perfect comedy duo of two idiots who can't rob the place because a 8 year old child has out witted them and set some clever and very funny traps around the house. Bank clerk Stanley Ipkiss is transformed into a manic super-hero when he wears a mysterious mask. That's the simple plot in a nutshell. Mac Culkin is awesome in the lead. A vigilante helps victims escape their domestic abusers. Pesci's character Harry is very strict, easily agitated and picks on Marv for a great many things. Yet he is the character I have found many like the most, mainly because he is so stupid you have to feel sorry for him.
At first Culkin loves the situation, but soon he is scared to death when he learns that burglars Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern are targeting his house. Pesci plays an aggressive thug, and anyone who's seen him in a Scorsese film knows how good he is at it. But the Wet Bandits have escaped, and they have just arrived in New York with loftier ambitions and bigger heists to pull off. Macaulay Culkin plays Kevin McCallister, the average American child. He lives with a large family, which, right now, being around Christmas time, is about quadrupled, flooded by relatives' children, all of whom pick on poor, poor Kevin sympathy long lost later into the film. This film has stood the test of time greatly.
They even brush by Kevin a few times not knowing he's there. Still, it's nothing for any parents to worry about. Michael Jordan agrees to help the Looney Toons play a basketball game vs. Security guard Larry Daley infiltrates the Smithsonian Institution in order to rescue Jedediah and Octavius, who have been shipped to the museum by mistake. I can recite every line and know pretty much everything bout the whole movie. Typically though, once they get a hold of him the give away far too much info.
Harry finds himself selected as an underaged competitor in a dangerous multi-wizardary school competition. All in all, 'Home Alone' is probably the best Christmas movie to rise out of the film industry in the last twenty years. But Kevin won't be alone for long. Spoiled by their upbringing with no idea what wild life is really like, four animals from New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four absconding penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar, among a bunch of merry lemurs After a bitter divorce, an actor disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife. The thing is that they somehow woke up late, left home in a hurry, and hey, they forget Lil Kev! Home Alone 2 has pretty much the same plot as the first movie, but Home Alone 2 is a very good sequel. But Kevin is going to make sure that they don't mess around with the kids and has set his uncle's abandoned apartment up for a fun house of traps. Yeah, it's quit unrealistic about the burglars, but honestly, this is a terrific family film.
But this time he's in New York City with enough cash and credit cards to turn the Big Apple into his very own playground. I think this house that Kevin set up was actually in some ways a little more fun than the first because of the traps he was able to set. His Aunt Georgette from the first movie is still in Paris so he uses her half-renovated home as a huge mousetrap for the bungling burglars. With a bigger story okay some of it re-used and more characters and a better playground for Kevin, Home Alone 2 manages to be a superior sequel. The notorious Wet Bandits, Harry and Marv, still smarting from their last encounter with Kevin, are bound for New York too, plotting a huge holiday heist! He scams his way into the Plaza hotel where a suspicious Concierge Tim Curry gives him mighty evil looks at every encounter. Perhaps it's just the whole New York scene and I think the bandits do better acting as well. I just love this film, and you will too if you look beyond the fact that it's a family film.
The new traps for the Wet, er. Chris Columbus' direction is smart and so is the over-achieving screenplay. They're about to leave for Paris, where they're gonna spend Christmas. He has an attitude almost expected of a Chris Columbus film from the eighties. Security guard David Dunn uses his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendell Crumb, a disturbed man who has twenty-four personalities. Back in the 80s, five friends cause raucous in their schooldays.
Tim Curry also appears as a concierge who has to prove that Kevin is on his own, and Brenda Fricker is the pigeon lady who watches over Kevin's little shoulder. Watch Movies Online: New Releases As Harry races against time and evil to destroy the Horcruxes, he uncovers the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the Deathly Hallows. Little do they know Kevin is more than prepared, arming the house with an array of booby-traps that would impress top spies in the American government. Back in the 80s, five friends cause raucous in their schooldays. Four high-tech industrial spies, Beaupre, Alice, Jernigan and Unger, steal a top-secret microchip, and, to fool customs, hide it in a remote-control toy car.
Having Tim Curry in this was also a treat. My favorite lot of the film. A band of kids embark on an epic quest to thwart a medieval menace. . Mac showed a talent that very little child stars have now-a-days. Here, he could barely act his way out of a plastic bag. Marv, the stereotypical 'tall, stupid one,' is completely stupid.
There's much more for Kevin to see and do in New York. Two dumbass robbers are planning to rob his house, but Kev ain't gonna let them! This film has a little bit of something for everyone and the fact that the backdrop is the Christmas holidays, only makes it that much more special.
