After watching Home Alone 2, I realized that the point of the film
was not only to make big bucks
from a name already established by the first movie
, but to show that the characters are incapable of learning anything, thus resulting in a plot almost identical
to the first movie
With that in mind
, here is a list of things that people probably should have learned, based on events in the first movie, but didn't:
The McAllister's never learned that they should get a battery
for their alarm clock
so that when they lose power to it, they don't oversleep.
The other relative
s of the McAllister's never learned to bring their own clocks, so they can still wake up when Kevin's parents oversleep
None of the various commercial driver
s ever learn not to hit the bronze statue
on the driveway
The McAllisters didn't learn that they should move
the statue, so it doesn't get hit all the time.
Kevin's Dad never learned that he should never let Kevin get access to his credit card
, or any other valuable item which may be traded for goods and services.
s never learned that local law enforcement
agencies are powerless
to help them get their son
back when they lose him.
The entire family
never learned that they will invariably have a horrible
time on their Christmas vacation
, and it's a waste of time
to go in the first place.
never learned that they should stay the hell
away from Kevin, even after the ruthless beating
they received the last time they messed with him.
Kevin never learned that the enigmatic stranger
will end up being his savior
