Corrected entry: When Kevin is running through the next-door neighbour's basement, there is a lot of water pouring down from the upper levels of the house into the basement (the burglar's had turned the taps on earlier on in the movie). Yet, when Kevin reaches the kitchen, the taps are turned off - where is the water supposed to be coming from?
Corrected entry: When Kevin's mother realises she's forgotten her son and decides to return, she takes a plane, but the plane which she arrives in later is totally different.
Corrected entry: Kevin's dad calls the neighbour's house and leaves a message. How can he when he and the neighbors live on the same block and the phones are supposed to be out?
Corrected entry: During the head count, Heather (the girl counting heads) counts herself twice-once at the beginning and then at the end. So even if Kevin was there instead of Mitch Murphy, there would still only have been 10 kids, therefore another kid had to have been missing.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Harry and Marv are in Kevin's neighbour's house, when Kevin's dad calls, Harry picks up the phone to listen to the message, and the phone is on the hook. It shows him listening, then he calls out to Marv, and the camera looks at Marv, then when it returns to Harry, the phone is off the hook.
Corrected entry: At the beginning, the mum is on the phone and right before Kevin jumps on to the bed, she was saying, 'No, we're not taking the dog, we're putting him in a kennel.' We never see a dog or any evidence of a dog in either this movie or its sequel.
Corrected entry: When the robbers return to the McAllisters' house and are scared off by Kevin's fake "party," why didn't they notice that even though lots of "people" were inside, no cars were parked outside the house?
Corrected entry: When Kevin is home alone, the phone lines are broken, so how could he order the pizza from Little Nero's?
Corrected entry: Kevin can manage to do the shopping, and work out how to use the washing machine; and yet he needed his mum to help pack his suitcase?
Corrected entry: Kevin sleeps in and doesn't get to go on vacation, but that night he was supposed to sleep with his cousin who wets the bed. If that kid had slept with him Kevin would have waken up with the kid.
