The 17 School Days of Christmas: Latest `Home Alone’ movie deserves to be left alone

The newest Home Alone film shows a light at the end of the tunnel for the franchise.

Home Sweet Home Alone starts with a couple trying to sell their house while the new Kevin McCalister (Max Mercer) wanders through the McKenzie home. Max steals a family heirloom, an old, disfigured doll at an open house.

Holiday hijinx then ensues, with a cat and mouse dynamic between the couple and Max like the previous movies, but with a modern twist. 

The film is hurt by very redundant dad jokes that flood the dialogue. There are, however, a few funny jokes and references that save the movie.

Director Dan Mazer isn’t known for his cinematography, but this movie was shot like one of those low-budget, Disney XD direct-to-TV movies where the puppies go to Hollywood or do something to save the day.

This is a low-brow movie with no standout actors. There is a cameo from Buzz, Kevin’s older brother from the original Home Alone installments, as Officer McCalister. 

This film is a perfect example of greedy Hollywood executives continuing to milk the already bone-dry cash cow which is the Home Alone series. 

The movie is geared towards a younger, more immature audience. Younger families trying to find their holiday groove and could possibly find it enjoyable.
