Still ripping us off

"Dont get this low rating confused with the movies. I've rated it no stars because it is again another rip off from 20th. Here's why...
This is about the 100th box set of all 4 'Home Alone' films together. And like all of the previous sets, they have ignored the fact that the first 2 movies where the best, the first Home Alone is a 4 or 5 star comedy, and part 2 wasnt as good, but it's still ok. The first 2 where smash hits, and great movies, you might even call them classics. But where poorly misstreated when they where brought to DVD. First off, there in Fullscreen, not Widescreen, they dont look like they have been remastered too good. And there is no bonus features apart from a trailer.
Why is there no bonus features with home alone 1 & 2? There is plenty to put on them, there where heaps of featurettes done when both of the films came out, so where are those now? And why isnt there any reunion footage, or audio commentery or something? The trailer also shows clearly that there is a few deleted scenes and alternate takes or extended scenes... so where is all that stuff? Why is it the only disc with bonus features is part 3 and 4. Part 4 was ok, but no where near as good as the other 2, and part 4, god, dont get me started on how bad that movie was. Yet they fill the 2 useless ones with heaps of bonus features, but cant go find the bonus features you would actualy want to see.
Dont bother buying this box set. Unless you dont care that there are no bonus features, and you just want the movie's themself, then ok, by this. or wait a few months for another box set edition to come out thats just a different cover on the box.
20th century have got to release the first 2 with the much awaited bonus features, other wise, well, there what the French call, Les Incompidont."

"Home Alone is one of my favorite movies. In this box you get all four movies in widescreen, plus trailors for the first three. Here's a rundown of my thoughts on each movie:
#1: Great movie. Well acted and a simple storyline.
#2: The perfect sequel. The original cast returns and gives another great performance.
#3: A change in the cast lineup. Plot becomes more complex. Bad guys are smarter. Still a great movie.
#4: What happened? Though not a bad movie, it completely changes the storyline.
My personal favorite of the series is the third one. These are great movies, and this boxed set is a really good buy."

"I have always loved all of the movies in the "Home Alone" series.I have loved watching them on television around Christmastime every year,but now,i`m 11,and I have a new little brother.One day I saw where "Home Alone 2:Lost In New York" was coming on TV,and so I turned it to the channel it was on,having not seen it in a year.I watched the whole movie straight with my brother,and every time I laughed,he laughed!So,I went on Amazon.com wanting to get the complete series on DVD to have forever.Thats when I saw this boxed set.It includes all four of the "Home Alone" movies.Here`s what I thought of each of them,and what i`ll always think:
Home Alone-Wonderful Christmas comedy showing the true spirit of Christmas,with some robbers along the way!
Home Alone 2:Lost In New York-An amazing sequal bringing back pretty much all the charectors from the first film.Definately a good one.
Home Alone 3-Different charectors,different actors,but still a great movie.With the villains more smart,and with a very valuble item in his grasp,the new "Home Alone" boy is in for a rockin holiday!
Home Alone 4:Taking Back The House-Kevin is back,but with a different person playing his role.This movie is decent,it is worth watching,but isn`t the best out of the four.But,you will still want to buy this boxed set,cause who knows,maybe you`ll like it better than I do!
Lots of laughs for a new generation

"My grandchildren were visitng us one evening when the Home Alone/New York was shown on regular TV. I didn't realize that they never viewed the Home Alone movies. They were laughing so hard that I bought the entire set so they could see all of them. The first two are the original actors, the third is a different family -- they are cute and funny and worth the money. The last one uses the original McAllister family and names, but with only 3 children (Kevin again is the youngest), Mom and Dad are divorced and Dad's girlfriend is rich, lives in a computerized smart home and is hosting the royal family for Christmas - it's awful. The first three make the boxed set worth the money."
