I spent most of this movie hoping that it would get better, and it never did. There were occasional moments of comedy, but this definitely wasn't the great movie I was expecting after seeing previews for so long. I wasted my time on this one.
Two sisters who couldn't be more different have a relationship that has its ups and downs. How they deal with the relationship problems is what makes them unique. This movie is based on a book, and while I enjoyed the book more, this movie is worth watching.
This time Kevin ends up on the wrong airplane and is alone in NYC. His careful planning falls apart when suspicious hotel personnel realize that he isn't the actual person on the credit card he used to check in. Once again, Kevin is able to save the day when he keeps the toy store's money from being stolen by the same thieves he thwarted in the first movie. This time they've managed to escape from jail and as luck would have it, end up in the same city as Kevin. Some overtly uncoincidental coincidences, but still a great movie to watch.
Every kid wants to be Kevin in this movie as he saves the day against the evil thieves terrorizing his neighborhood while families are away for the holidays. Kids also understand how Kevin feels unappreciated and overlooked in his family.
This story is a fun read. The character is well developed and you can empathize with her. The loose ends of this book are tied up in the sequel that is, in my opinion, no where near as good as this book.
