HOME SWEET HOME ALONE – Review
Even 31 years after its release, Home Alone is still a classic because of its sheer rewatch value. The movie has some mere comic scenes that will make you laugh at your guts out. But the new Home Sweet Home Alone somewhere lags behind the real classic of 1990 film. However, this Home Sweet Home Alone is majorly the replica of the original Home Sweet Home Alone with one of the additional writings.
The first major difference that can be noticed between the original and this new one is that Harry and Marv, the two burglars in the new one are not crooked by the nature but are forced to commit the burglary on Christmas eve, which is very unlike the original one. When the couple gets convinced that a 10-year-old boy, Jojo, has stolen their rare doll which could solve their financial issues, the couple gets determined to procure that doll back.
There is not any kind of malice. The couple only wanted to procure their doll back without harming the kid and was trying to save its home by breaking into another. However, just like the original Home Alone, the boy, in the beginning, seems to enjoy the solitude but then gradually starts to miss his family. What a strange conundrum we can witness in this movie is that we feel badly for the couple but not for the boy.
However, it is also true that we cannot see two innocent adults subjected to pain and agony. According to the writer’s point of view, this subjection to pain and agony is justified because on their other side is just a small kid, but this seems to be useless in the movie to torture two innocent adults.
In this comedy movie, Home Sweet Home Alone, further shame comes in the wealth of comedy talent in the supporting roles from Jim Rash to Kenan Thompson, as they do not get enough chance to shine. One can even once forget the overall morality, but the movie compels you to think that are the booby trap sequences in this new Home Sweet Home Alone are actually funny or not.
And the answer you will get is nothing but just a big no! And this once again boils down to the ‘purpose’ this movie serves. Even the fundamentals of this movie seem to be wrong and hence it becomes hard to have fun with the details and the makers don’t appear like they are trying so hard to make this movie appear that appealing.
This new one doesn’t give the Christmas vibes and values that were given by the original one. The movie somewhere feels like it is a little misguided. However, the movie is good enough to give you the nostalgia for the original film and that can bring a good smile to your face. If you are looking for something to watch that can offer you the perfect Christmas vibes, then Home Sweet Home Alone can be a good option.
The acting of the characters in the movie is pretty impressive, and the movie is pretty good for the kids. The movie is not that bad, but yes; it doesn’t meet the expectations of the audience that it has from the Home Alone franchise. However, there is something different in this movie from the previous one which is good as change is the law of nature.
You can give this movie a watch if you are a Christmas movie lover or a huge fan of Home Alone, otherwise there is not any such reason to watch Home Sweet Home Alone. But yes! If you have watched it or are going to watch it, don’t forget to share your opinions about this movie with us!
