* Buzz's tarantula is seen crawling its way around the house all the time Kevin is home in the first movie after he frees it from its cage. Would it be in danger of starving since Buzz apparently left it all alone while be went off go France with the family? Not necessarily. Tarantulas, depending on species, can go on with eating once a week, and Buzz claims he fed it quite a bit when showing it to their cousin. So his tarantula will be fine when someone finally finds it and scoops it back into its cage.

** As we see in the beginning of the movie in a brief view of a newspaper, Marv and Harry escaped prison die to there being a riot in the prison they were being held in, presumably allowing them to slip away in the chaos rather than them having concocted any sort of elaborate escape plan. And given they've become known as escapees in the past, it's likely that they would be held in a much more secure place during their subsequent incarceration.

* Why doesn't Kevin call for help from somewhere with a working phone, like the grocery store? I would say this is because he truly believes he has magically made his family disappear, which the police couldn't fix. Notice he asks the guy who he believes works for Santa for his family to return.

** Because he's 8 years old. There's only so much logic you can expect from pre-preteens.

* Kate McAllister at one point bribes a couple at an airport gate to secure herself a ticket, which would constitute fraud and raise the question of wouldn't the attendant check her identification? If the flights work anything like today, Kate didn't need the couple's tickets, she just needed them to not board so as to allow standby passengers to fill the unused seats, thus legally boarding the plane.
* Christmas morning, the McAllister's house is immaculate. Sure, it flows with Kevin wanting to recreate Christmas and get the place ready for his hopefully returning family along with him being incredibly capable, but it still seems a lot of work both cleaning and putting out decorations. Solution: Old Man Marley helped him fix the place up, including de-icing the front steps. He wanted to help Kevin feel safe and BE safe in this house and likely would have checked on Kevin the following day if he hadn't seen the McAllister's return and be distracted by his own family reunion.

** According to Culkin, [[EnforcedMethodActing he still has a scar on his finger]]. In fact, he and Joe Pesci even shared some real-life animosity, partly because of this incident.

* Uncle Frank is such a JerkAss to Kevin. What are the chances that [[AbusiveParents he treats his own children any better]]?

* In Home Alone 3 how sick was the kid? We never see anything more than spots on him and yet he has chicken pox. He should at least have occasionally scratched a bit, but he's running around the house like he's healthy on the fifth day. Yes, technically antibiotics can make you feel okay while still contagious, but there was no indication that he was sick at all, which is weird since ''it's the whole reason he was home alone.'' I'm not asking for debilitating or anything, but a reminder or two during the film of "oh, right, he's sort of got one of the worse diseases a kid can have" may have been nice.

* Why do Kevin's parents have an antique blowtorch? Even in 1990, that thing was ancient, and there had to be more safety-conscious and effective models on the market.

*** The neighbourhoods where the action takes place at this point in the film are located in midtown and the Upper West Side. There's NO WAY streets could be THAT empty even in the middle of the night.
