HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEW YORK
TEN, Saturday, 6.30pm, PG ( 1992)
Left to his own devices again, Kevin McCallister ( Macaulay Culkin, pictured) this time finds himself in a posh New York City hotel. What terrible parents this kid has. All the original cast is back, but Mac no longer takes centre stage: it’s the bumbling bandits – Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci – who steal the show. There’s some back- story with the moral message about accepting other people as a pigeon lady scares the bejesus out of Kevin, but in the end it’s some new laughs, but the same old jokes. Look out for the younger Culkin, Kieran.
