Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

Kevin catches the bad guys stealing the money from Duncan's Toy Chest and breaks a window to sound the alarm. The bad guys follow Kevin to an "abandoned" house in which he has set up booby traps. After nearly defeating them, Kevin calls the police and almost escapes when the burglars catch him and take him to Central Park with the intention of killing him. Kevin is rescued by the Pigeon Lady, the crooks are arrested and the money is returned. Kevin's mom finds him at the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center and takes him back to the hotel where in the morning they find a ton of presents from Mr. Duncan. Kevin sneaks out to wish a merry Christmas to the Pigeon Lady, giving her one of his turtle dove figurines. Kevin's father receives a bill for lots of money that Kevin spent and he screams.

Continuity mistake: In the first film, it is mentioned several times that Kevin is 8 years old. However, in this film it is stated that he is 10. When his parents are in the Miami airport security office, they say that he was left alone last Christmas. That would make him 9. Both films take place the same days, from about three days before Christmas until Christmas morning, so even if Kevin is born around Christmas time this is still a mistake.

Question: What happened to the limo on the curb of the toy store after Kevin got out? Why did the limo driver leave him there?

Answer: During that time, the hotel found out the credit card Kevin used was stolen. So since they were the ones who got the limo for Kevin, it's safe to assume they also called it back.

Answer: The limo company may have only had an agreement with the hotel to take Kevin to one destination of his choosing or to drive him around for a certain amount of time.
