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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

Factual error: The AA flight number to Miami is a 4 digit number beginning with a 5. These are regional flight numbers but the family flew on a mainline 767.

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.

Kevin McCallister: Howdy do. This is Peter McCallister, the father. I'd like a hotel room please, with an extra large bed, a TV, and one of those little refrigerators you have to open with a key. Credit card? You got it.

More trivia for Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

Question: After Peter yells at Kevin "You spent $967 on room service?!", where does Kevin run off to? It's not clear from what's onscreen.

Answer: He's heading back to the hotel most likely to apologize for spending such a huge amount.

Answer: It's Kevin's dad who screams out. You can tell because Buzz looks at the bill, smirks, and says, "Oh, Dad." I've always interpreted it as Kevin running away. The joke is that Kevin's dad screams so loud from the hotel room that Kevin can hear him from the park. So Kevin wouldn't want to face his dad.

I just watched the clip on YouTube and yeah you're right, it is his dad. The sound of his voice when he yells "Kevin" sounds exactly like Buzz, so it probably conditioned a lot of viewers such as myself to accept it as Buzz's voice for the whole line.
