Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

Revealing mistake: When Tim Curry runs out of Kevin's hotel room after being scared by the inflatable clown doll he hits his knee on a table. When he hits the table and then hops away you can clearly see that he is wearing a knee-pad.

Revealing mistake: In the scene when the bandits are in the uncle's house at the bottom of the stairs, the tool chest falls down. When it hits the door and they slide back if you look closely you can see that they are on rollerblades.

Revealing mistake: When Kevin arrives at the airport in New York (filmed at Chicago O'Hare) and goes up to the agent to ask her what city is outside the window, one of the destinations on the board at the gate is New York - LaGuardia...giving away that the scene was not shot at a NYC area airport.

Revealing mistake: When Kevin breaks the pearl necklace while being chased by Harry and Marv, the hands doing the breaking are not Kevin's, they are much too big to be his.

Revealing mistake: In the scene at the end when Marv and Harry are talking to Kevin on the roof, if you watch it when Kevin throws the brick down at them, the one brick hits Marv. They cut film somehow so you wouldn't notice easily, but when it hits Marv you can see the corner buckle in, as it's a sponge made to look like a brick.

Revealing mistake: In the whole scene where Harry's head is caught on fire to the part where it shows the explosion outside the building, this is quite obvious that the whole scene was done during the day.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Kevin runs into his relative's abandoned house in the middle of the night to set the traps, he runs down a ramp. You can tell that shot was filmed in broad daylight.

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.
