Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is a 1992 American comedy film written and produced by John Hughes and directed by Chris Columbus. It is the second film in the Home Alone series and the sequel to the 1990 film Home Alone. The film stars Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, John Heard, Tim Curry, Brenda Fricker, and Catherine O'Hara.

In the film, taking place one year after the events of Home Alone, Kevin and his family decide to take a trip to Florida, but Kevin accidentally boards the wrong plane and instead ends up in New York City. He tries to make do with what he has, such as using his father's credit card to stay at the Plaza Hotel, but is soon confronted by the recently–escaped Wet Bandits. Using his wits to survive and befriending unlikely locals, Kevin must outrun and out-prank his old enemies again, while his family tries desperately to find him.

Home Alone 2 was filmed on location in Chicago and New York City, including at the Rockefeller Center and the original World Trade Center. Despite receiving mixed to negative reviews from critics, who found it to be overly similar to its predecessor, the film became the second most financially successful film of 1992, earning over $173 million in revenue in the United States and $359 million worldwide against a budget of $28 million.

A sequel featuring a new cast of characters, Home Alone 3, followed five years later in 1997.

The McCallister family is preparing to spend Christmas in Miami, and gathers at Peter and Kate's Chicago home. Peter and Kate's youngest son, Kevin, sees Florida as contradictory to Christmas, due to its lack of Christmas trees. Later, at a school pageant, Buzz humiliates Kevin during his solo, causing Kevin to retaliate, thereby ruining the performance. Buzz half-heartedly apologizes, but Kevin berates his family before storming to the attic again, wishing to have his own vacation alone. Because Peter had accidentally unplugged the alarm clock, the family oversleeps again.

At the airport, Kevin stops to replace the batteries in a Talkboy with new ones from Peter's bag. Losing sight of his family, Kevin inadvertently boards a flight to New York City after mistakenly following a man who is dressed like Peter. Upon arrival in New York, Kevin decides to tour the city. At Central Park, Kevin meets a homeless woman tending pigeons, which frightens him. Kevin goes to the Plaza Hotel, where he uses Peter's credit card to check in. Meanwhile, Harry and Marv, now calling themselves the "Sticky Bandits", have traveled to New York as well, having escaped from prison during a riot.

On Christmas Eve, Kevin visits a toy store where he meets its philanthropic owner, Mr. Duncan. Kevin learns that the proceeds from the store's Christmas sales will be donated to a children's hospital, and provides a donation. As a token of appreciation, Mr. Duncan offers Kevin a pair of ceramic turtledoves as a gift, instructing him to give one to another person as a gesture of eternal friendship. After encountering Harry and Marv outside the store, Kevin runs away, and returns to the Plaza. The hotel's concierge, Mr. Hector, confronts Kevin about the credit card, which has been reported stolen. Kevin flees the hotel, but is ambushed by Harry and Marv, who brag about their plans to kill him and break into the toy store at midnight; having recorded their gloating on his Talkboy, Kevin escapes to Central Park.

After landing at the airport, the rest of the family discovers that Kevin is missing. Having tracked the whereabouts of the credit card, they fly to New York. Meanwhile, Kevin goes to his uncle Rob's townhouse, only to find the house vacant and undergoing renovations while Rob and his family are in Paris. In Central Park, he again encounters and befriends the pigeon lady. They go to Carnegie Hall, where the pigeon lady explains how her life collapsed when her lover left her. Kevin encourages her to trust people again, and promises to be her friend. After considering the pigeon lady's advice that he perform a good deed to make up for his misdeeds, he decides to prevent Harry and Marv from robbing the toy store.

Having rigged the townhouse with booby traps, Kevin arrives at the toy store during Harry and Marv's robbery, takes a picture of them, and breaks a window with a brick, triggering the store's alarm. He then lures them to the townhouse, where they spring the traps and suffer various injuries. While the duo chases for Kevin outside of the townhouse, he calls the police, and lures them into Central Park, where they capture him. Before they can shoot him as revenge, the pigeon lady intervenes and incapacitates them with birdseed and pigeons. Kevin then sets off fireworks to signal the police, who arrive to arrest Harry and Marv, finding Kevin's photos and tape recording. At the toy store, Mr. Duncan finds a note attached to Kevin's brick, explaining the robbery. Remembering his fondness for Christmas trees, Kate finds Kevin making a wish at the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, and they reconcile.

On Christmas Day, a truckload of gifts arrive at the McCallisters' hotel room from the toy store as a reward for Kevin foiling the robbery. Kevin reconciles with the rest of his family, and goes to Central Park to give the pigeon lady the second turtledove, cementing their friendship. Buzz receives the bill from Cedric for Kevin's original stay and shows it to Peter, who angrily yells, "Kevin, you spent $967 on room service?!" at which point Kevin runs.
