Home Sweet Home Alone, A Mess of A Christmas Movie by Jack Sweetland

It’s that time of year when you get cozy and  watch Christmas movies. “Home Alone” is an all time classic along with “Die Hard” and “Elf.” So, Disney chose to remake “Home Alone” and this is my review:…..

First of all let’s  talk about the cast, with Archie Yates  as Max Mercer the new Kevin stand-in   ,and with Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney playing the wet bandits’ new counterparts. The movie’s plot is sure to be a mess.  

Let’s get into it. The movie starts with the new wet bandits, the McKenzies, talking to some people about selling their house. It’s a very long boring opening with no plot point besides the fact they introduce Max, his mom, and a doll. The plot is that the Mckenzies need to make money to keep their house, so how do they do it? By breaking into Max’s house of course. Max still gets left home alone. In the original movie, Kevin was actually defending his house  from the robbers; in the new movie he is just attacking this couple for no reason. In the end it was all  a misunderstanding because [SPOILER ALERT]  stop reading here if you don’t want to know what happens. 


The doll they were looking for to pay for the house  was really in their kids hand the whole time. So yay!  Besides  the bad jokes and unfunny moments,  I give the movie a 1 out of 10. Just watch “Home Alone 1 and 2” .
