*** WordOfGod has it this is ''exactly'' what John Hughes originally wanted to do with the third movie (had Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox allowed 3 to be filmed immediately after 2).

* HarsherInHindsight: In the second movie, there are two brief scenes during the montage of Kevin exploring NYC that are uncomfortable nowadays: One has Kevin walking between the Twin Towers, and another has him taking pictures on top of one of the World Trade Centers. Even if it doesn't make one uncomfortable or sad, it definitely dates the movie.

** Harry's [[{{Angrish}} incoherent sputters of rage]] every time he suffers a mishap at Kevin's hands. Basically what happens when you put Joe Pesci in a PG film.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd lampshades these two video games based on the first two films, in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNAF0GGssbM two separate]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CyqK8wqwYmc reviews]]. One time in the first NES game review on ''Home Alone'' the Nerd sees that Kevin [=McCallister=] moonwalks, and says, "[[HarsherInHindsight He must have spent way too much time with]] Music/MichaelJackson."

* WhatAnIdiot:
** In the sequel, Marv stealing many things in broad daylight, swiping coins from a sidewalk Santa's coin tray. He doesn't get caught, but considering he just broke out of prison, he might want to be a little more careful.
*** Harry does point this out, and though Marv responds by giving the duo their new nickname; Harry does not look impressed.
** Also, Marv is the one that pushed for the "Wet Bandits" motif in the first movie. After being arrested, a cop jokingly thanks him for that, saying, "Now we know which houses you hit."
** In the first, after falling on the broken glass, he then ''walks on it'' instead of simply clearing the way.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Uncle Frank is an EnsembleDarkhorse for some, and TheScrappy for others. His jerkassery is played for laughs and it makes him memorable despite his limited screentime, but his quips rubs some fans the wrong way.

His jerkassery is played for laughs and it makes him memorable despite his limited screentime, but his quips rubs some fans the wrong way. It may help to be aware that he was originally written to be the main villain of the first film and hired the burglars himself; his villainy was excised from the script but his jerkassery stayed in.



* {{Sequelitis}}: While the third film was relatively decent (for some), the fourth and, to an extent, fifth were just plain bad.

* ItsTheSameSoItSucks: A major criticism of the second movie is that it's too much like the first Home Alone apart from the setting switching to New York rather than being secluded to a house.

** Buzz's nonchalant attitude towards Kevin being left home alone. Was it because he actually doesn't care about Kevin's well-being or was it because he honestly believes Kevin can take care of himself and nothing dangerous will happen to him?

** Kevin waking up on Christmas morning eagerly hoping to find his family back home, only to be heartbroken to see that the house is still empty.

** Kevin waking up on Christmas morning eagerly hoping to find his family back home, only to be heartbroken to see that the house is still empty. The scene quickly bounces back into heartwarming, however, as Kate comes in through the door just a few seconds later.
