Home Sweet Home Alone

For better or worse, the movie is exactly what you think it is.  They essentially re-made Home Alone but from the perspective of the robbers.  Sure, they change around some of the details but it really is the same movie.  For whatever reason the robbery scene really bugged me more than it did in the original.  Don’t get me wrong – it was absurd in the original…. it just felt so hokey in this movie.  My kids loved it and I didn’t want to put a gun to my head as I was watching it so I can’t complain.  If you’re looking to see a classic Christmas movie re-done with a better result I recommend 8 Bit Christmas.
