Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

Factual error: No airport in NYC has the view of the New York City skyline that Kevin has when he realizes that his family is in Florida and he's in New York.

Add time

Factual error: When Kevin goes in the limo, the front desk manager attempts to process a charge on the credit card, which comes back as "stolen." No credit card terminal flashes "stolen" when a credit card has been compromised or cancelled. The machine would simply decline the transaction, much like if the credit limit had been exceeded, or tell the merchant to phone for authorization.

Add time

Factual error: The picture that Kevin takes of Marv and Harry through the toystore window is perfectly clear. There is no way you can take a picture of something through a window without the flash reflecting back and ruining the image, especially from as close a range as Kevin was.

Add time

Factual error: There is no pool at the Plaza. Some people think this was the pool at the Four Seasons hotel in Chicago, but that is impossible as Kevin was already in New York City at the Plaza Hotel when the swimming scene takes place.

Add time

Factual error: When Harry and Marv arrive for the first time at Kevin's "funhouse", they look up to the roof and spot Kevin taking a Polaroid of them. The flash brightly illuminates them both, but the building looks to be at least 30 feet high; a basic Polaroid camera does not have a flash strong enough to reach such a distance (plus the street is already illuminated by lamps and Christmas lights).

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

When Kevin arrives at the New York Airport and he asks the woman at the counter which city he's in. That woman is Ally Sheedy. This film was written, and produced by John Hughes, who also directed her in the 1985 film, "The Breakfast Club."
