Movie Reviews

More respect-less profanity
G. Reid | 12/27/2003
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I'm sorry to say that this movie was ruined by today's standard of decency. Its bad enough we can't protect our kids from the world but we really should be able to put in a pg movie and get good laughs not profanity and a complete lack of respect for the Lords house of worship. I was totally appauled with the actions in the church as if using the Lords name in vain was'nt enough. What happened to pg being 1 or 2 bad words and that was it. Todays standards are totally wrong. Years ago that would have been rated R. It would have been a terrific movie but they feel if there isn't a lot of cussing and bad manners no one will enjoy it, well they're dead wrong. Let's clean up the act for our future generation, after all what we put into the future is what we're going to get back. Feed kids garbage and what do you think they will produce?"
Very good, very overlooked
Torrance High School's Class of 199 | Torrance, California | 10/18/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In yet another enjoyable performance, Macaulay Culkin plays an 11 year old kid who has not had that much quality time with his dad, who is an ex-con. Just as his father (Ted "Sam Malone" Danson) is about to commit one final robbery, Culkin arrives for a visit and disrupts his fathers plans. In turn, Culkin hides his father's loot that was just stolen and only says he will give it back if his father does time-- as a dad. Culkin is great as usual, and Danson does as good a job as he did as his "Cheers" womanizer. It does bear a little resemblence to the "Home Alone" movies, eespecially two of Dansons' cohorts (Saul Rubineck and Gailard Sartain). But it makes the movie all the more fun. Don't miss this one!"

Much Better Than The Earlier Reviews/4 or 5 Stars

"Culkin fans should love this movie. The movie has a good message. Home Alone fans should not be disappointed. Danson is at his best in this film."
