Sight and Sound - 01/01/1998
"...Editing and fluent camerawork are deftly synched together to create a fast-moving set-piece unlike anything in the first two films..."
Box Office - 02/01/1998
"...This refreshingly funny film produces more laughs than its predecessors..."
Chicago Sun-Times -
"...This movie follows the exact formula of the first two, but is funnier and gentler, has a real charmer for a hero, and provides splendid wish fulfillment and escapism for kids..."
Producer-screenwriter John Hughes scores the "Home Alone" hat trick with this second sequel to the slapstick blockbuster, which now finds savvy school-ager Alex under siege by spies while quarantined at home with the chickenpox. Due to an airport mix-up, the spies' super-secret computer chip finds its way to Alex's quiet, tree-lined street, and only he can prevent its rightful owners from ransacking his house.
