Home Alone 2: Lost in New York | 1992 | PG | - 0.3.1

Macaulay Culkin's family again leaves him alone, this time in New York, and Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern run right into their diminutive nemesis.

SEX/NUDITY 0 - None.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Culkin hits his brother while on stage at a Christmas concert. This throws all the singers off balance and the accompanist falls backwards off the stage. In the hotel, Culkin watches an old black-and-white gangster-type movie where the guy guns down his dame because he suspects she's been sleeping around. As far as the crooks are concerned, Culkin throws at least 5 bricks - all of which hit one of them in the forehead. Holes in the floor cause the crooks to fall to a cement basement. One crook gets tangled up and stapled in sensitive places - like his nose. The same crook gets electrocuted to the point of showing his skeleton. Tools fall on the other. Culkin soaks a rope in kerosene and, after climbing down it, sets it aflame - while the crooks are still hanging on to it.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
