    Makes me want to cry.

    There is either too much or too little filler, the pacing is too quick, I had no time to grasp who anyone was. But there was a lot of unnecessary scenes as well.

    For the first bit of the movie it doesn't even follow the protagonist and yet we're supposed to feel bad for him after HE steals the doll from two.. IDIOTS

    Every line is trying so hard to be funny, Uncreative, predictble garbage.

    The Ad placement isn't hidden that well either, it bombards you. Every second scene there's a poptart box, or an iPhone.

    This movie will suck the Christmas spirit out of you. Please skip it.

    Simply awful!
    I am halfway through this movie and am sorely tempted to forget about the rest. It is frantic, unfunny and confusing since the "bad" guys (I should say "couple"!) are actually good guys, while the supposably good and likeable kid turns out to be an unlikeable brat. So any trap he sets makes me wince because I can't stand the idea that the couple should get hurt simply because they are attempting to recover a valuable doll they believe has been stolen from them. Of course, the whole scenario is ridiculously unlikely. Everything could have been solved in a quick and amiable way but then it wouldn't have been a "Home Alone" movie. Well, actually it strays so far from the original concept that it isn't anything but a cheap attempt to attract more viewers through the title. It's nothing like the first two movies.

    I will change my rating to 10 if it is scraped out of existence.
    Why does this film exist? It's so horrible that it's beyond imaginable. What a mess truly. The film has no redeeming moments. By far the worst of the franchise. They could head in so many directions and even use original casting to bring the franchise back but once again they've dug up an old title and made a hollow, soulless movie.. it looks and feels like a low budget sitcom. Director, cast and production all just dreadful. File this one under "should not have happened" but again in todays industry its about quantity not quality. Everyone involved got paid well but they'll probably regret doing this one later on in their careers..

    worst kid ever
    I'm rooting for the 'burglars' in this movie.

    It's literally just a film about a privileged british child torturing two lower class parents trying to receive something that the kid STOLE from THEM. They try to excuse it by saying the kid thinks they're gonna basically human traffic him or something, but this kid is literally a psycho.

    The best parts of the movie would just be the cameo of buzz and callbacks to the original movie. Some moments are funny but god i wanna punt this kid so bad. They say kevin mccalister was like jigsaw? This kid beats him by tenfold. He shoots the female burglar with at least twenty nerf bullets with needles attached. It's terrifying.

    .5 out of 5 stars.

    One of the worst films ever. First of all, the couple that was trying to break into the home was not really the bad guys. They were trying to claim a antique doll that was there. Except, the kid Max (Archie Yates) took from there house. It was difficult to even care for Max when he was annoying and more of the bad guy. The characters are unlikable. The script is annoying with cringy dialogue. The humor is stupid. Lacks the fun the other films had. And there was not one good thing about the film.

    a nightmare of bad. just stop this home alone franchise.
    This was terrible. A movie that is painful. The movie is not fun. It's really poorly done. The acting is garbage. The script is awful. The kid in the film as the main character is annoying. The film is not funny.
