I didn't even know they made a new Home Alone this year!
Anyway, "major improvement" is the best way you can describe this film. It's kinda
refreshing, but now it's just as bad as your average Disney-ABC TV
movie. There wasn't a single character I liked.
think that since this is the first Home Alone film in a decade (the
bittersweet "Taking Back the House" was released in 2002) they would
have "modernized" it a bit for fans of the original (Hi, my name is
Speedy). But, hey, what did you expect from a Disney-ABC TV
movie, something decent?
"...development for the film began in March 2012 as a
co-production between ABC Family and Fox TV Studios. The two production
companies previously co-produced Home Alone 4 in 2002."
...THAT EXPLAINS EVERYTHING...!
