Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

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.

Other mistake: In the scene where Kevin is making the hotel reservation on the phone, the lady does not even ask the dates of when he will be arriving and leaving the Plaza.

Audio problem: When Kevin plays the tape of his Uncle Frank singing in the shower, it starts with "We know a guy that can really do the cool jerk" twice. Yet, when he first tapes his Uncle, he doesn't start the recording until after that has been sung. The recording also sounds very clear. When he tapes him the door is closed, but the tape sounds the same throughout. Also, when his Uncle says he's gonna "slap him silly" Kevin shuts the door behind him and you can hear it shut. On the tape there is no sound of the door shutting.

More quotes from Home Alone 2: Lost in New York


Question: How does Kevin manage to keep quiet the events of the first Home Alone movie involving Harry and Marv without anyone else in the family knowing, especially the parents? I imagine that Kevin would've had to take time off from school to testify against Harry and Marv in courts. And even if the trial took place during the summer months, I would think Kevin's parents would have had to consent, or at least have knowledge, to their son testifying in court against the two burglars.

Chosen answer: Remember that Kevin didn't give his name, nor did the police ever see him. When he called, it was from a different address and he gave his name as "Murphy." There is no reason to think that Harry and Marv would tell the police about Kevin, since they would have to admit being outsmarted by a child and also admit to kidnapping, assault, battery, and a wide array of charges for what they tried to do to him. Even if he did testify, there is no reason to think his parents wouldn't know.

Question: Can somebody tell me the English translation of what the foreign guy, who sits next to Kevin on the plane, is saying?

Chosen answer: he is saying, "I come from France, I'm a tourist here. It's the first time I've come to America. Can't you tell me of a good restaurant, maybe your parents know a good place. Why aren't you replying? You speak French right? I don't speak English at all, help me out here. You don't want to talk to me, do you? Are you upset with me?" (I got that from a website).

Question: What is the name of the movie(s) that Kevin watches in Home Alone 1 and 2? Is it the same movie?

Chosen answer: The name of the movie is "Angels with Filthy Souls," but it is not actually a real film at all and was created especially for the franchise.
