Critic Reviews for Home Sweet Home Alone

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (14)

This really shouldn't be hard: find a cute kid (and they have, in the form of Jojo Rabbit's Archie Yates), and then string together a few comically implausible ways to injure another human being.

Home Sweet Home Alone is a very odd duck -- a movie that basically replicates the three-decades-old "Home Alone" template, but in a way that feels slightly weird and ill-conceived.

A defanged variation on the theme that doesn't commit hard enough to be silly fun, beyond a few chuckles.

Home Sweet Home Alone misses the key elements that made both the slapstick and the sentiment of the 1990 version appealing.

November 12, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Home Sweet Home Alone is a surprisingly entertaining, if wholly unnecessary, sequel, a tangerine where we expected to find a lump of coal.

November 12, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Everything that happens before the mayhem - the burglary begins after a full hour of padding - is excruciatingly forced.
