* [[https://youtu.be/8WKgNyvsNDM This rather clever video]] shows what would happen if Harry and Marv's AmusingInjuries from both movies were to happen in [[RealityEnsues real life.]] [[spoiler: In all, it would take nine Harrys and ''14'' Marvs to be able to survive the various injuries they suffered. Also, although the latter dies more, it's the ''former'' who dies first, via a broken neck from falling off the front steps backwards. In comparison, the same video series determined that [[Franchise/DieHard John McClane]] would only die ''four'' times over the course of his first two movies, and all of those deaths are in the first (he was judged to have just barely evaded lethal damage in the second).]] Bleah.

* The wreath of the [=McCallister=] residence at the beginning of the movie features a rather mean looking Santa, with his eyes in shadow ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' style... and then they zoom in on the thing! Yeesh!

* Meta: Daniel Stern [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSmGxRGut6w posted a video]] as some kind of comeback for the character. Sounds harmless right? Well, the video itself plays like found footage, with Marv being terrified and worried about Kevin coming back to get him. It's rather disturbing. Especially when it cuts to black and we hear his famous scream.



Both Movies:

!! Both Movies:



** What's worse is that Macaulay Culkin's appearance in the web series DRYVRS and the above mentioned Daniel Stern clip both seem to take this idea and ''run with it''. [[spoiler: The sight of a resentful adult Kevin casually heating up a coathanger to incapacitate an attempted carjacker, kidnapping him and then seemingly [[ToThePain brutally murdering him]] says nothing good for Marv.]]

** When Harry and Marv manage to catch Kevin, they gleefully claim that everything Kevin did to them, they're going to do to him. All those booby traps? Not so funny when you picture those things being done to an eight-year-old boy. Harry even said he was going to [[{{Fingore}} bite off all of Kevin's fingers one at a time]], and had every intention of going through with it. He actually ''had one in his mouth'' [[spoiler: before a shovel-wielding Marley came in to rescue Kevin.]]

* John Hughes actually wanted to make a sequel about an adult Kevin, entering into canon that he'd become a Joker-esque psychopath after seeing all the stuff he could get away with using his traps. With this in mind the films come off more as an early take on ''Film/HardCandy''.
