"To anyone thinking that this collection might include newly remastered widescreen versions of the films, it DOES NOT. Instead, 20th Century Fox has assembled a shameless repackage of the original non-anamorphic discs for films 1 and 2. The transfers look like they were done during the infancy of standard def, which means quite lousy. They couldn't even include the recent Family Fun Edition of the first film (which is remastered). I didn't bother checking films 3 and 4 because it's obvious this is a cash grab for a surplus of the original discs, which have been collected before. The outside box doesn't even bother to tell you the specs of the films (probably anticipating a reaction like mine). Nothing new here except the packaging. Whatever department head gave the green light to this attrocity is in the wrong line of work."
YOU MUST READ THIS BEFORE YOU PURCHASE

"First of all these are excellent movies, I have been watching them for almost 20 years (original was released in 1990-91) and I love watching them each year on video. However this three star review is based on the fact that it doesn't include the Family Fun Edition of the first film. If you are buying this thinking that it includes the Family Fun Edition of the first movie, don't waste your time. This does include the original dvd releases of all 4 films and it is a great deal. However when I purchased this I assumed since the family fun edition was the most recent edition it would be included IT ISN'T This is simply a rerelease of the previous Home Alone Boxed Set!"
The Same Thing Again

"Not to take away from the absolute joy and hilarity I get when I watch these movies, because the movies themselves are terrific. But seriously, didn't we get "The Caper Collection" thrown at us a few years ago? And aren't those the same versions of the films we get here? Much to the disappointment of many potential buyers, the answer to both questions is an emphatic YES! I love these films -- even number 4, which was widely panned -- but enough is enough. My recommendation would be this: if you have "The Caper Collection" don't buy this, there is nothing new here. If you don't own any of the movies, either "The Caper Collection" or this one will do, if you want all four movies. Of cours, for the ultimate "Home Alone" experience, go with the "Family Fun" edition of the first film."
Love this set.

"I hear what everyone is saying about no changes to this set and not remastered and so on. I have never owned the Home alone set but have always loved the movies, especially the first 2, and I don't really care if they are not remastered or have extra features. This set is cheap and it has all the movies and they are just as funny as when I saw them originally. So I say for under $30 it is a good deal.."
