* When Kevin tells his family that he just "hung around" while they were gone, he's referring to when Harry and Marv hung him up on the door, prior to Marley saving him.

** Harry doesn't think they're going to get caught. If they do, there is probably going to be more than enough evidence against them even without the flooding (though obviously that doesn't help- and copycats are EXTREMELY unlikely, plus the flooding would not be the only proof and it WOULD stand in court) to put them away for a long time. His main concern is that even without the risk of capture, it's still unhealthy...and hey, maybe this is even a case of EvenEvilHasStandards, since while he has no problems robbing houses for profit (and he wasn't yet ready to kill a kid- they probably originally planned to just tie Kevin up and otherwise leave him be if he hadn't tortured them first), flooding and wrecking their homes for no reason other than "It's our calling card" might be a step too far even for him.



* 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.

* If Alex had to press the record button to get footage, wouldn't that have given away his position to the spies when they reviewed the tape?

to:

* Despite how dumb they are, Harry and Marv were still smart enough to escape from prison. If they escaped again after the second movie, Kevin would be in a huge amount of danger, since they know where he lives, know how to acquire a gun, and really, REALLY want him dead.

* Buzz is able to convince Kevin that Old Man Marley killed his entire family because Marley hasn't been visited by his family since before the McAllisters moved to the neighborhood.

*** It's actually an affluent neighborhood of brick townhouses, with expensive cars on the street and lots of houses with holiday lights. Which makes nobody noticing all that's going on even stranger.

* Why Harry didn't notice his head was on fire seemed RuleOfFunny at first. However, because he had his head set on fire before, the nerve endings could be permanently damaged. So he probably couldn't even feel it till he saw it.

* (Putting it here before it comes up:) The dog door on the the backdoor of the McCallister's home. They have it because they have a dog (that we never see), Kate mentions that it's in the kennel when she's on the phone at the very beginning of the movie (just before telling Kevin to get off the bed).
