The “Alone at Home” movies have become a Christmas classic for many. The first film came in 1990. The success was colossal, and only two years later came the second part.
In total, the two films brought in earnings of more than 450 million dollars, which is equivalent to 3.9 billion crowns.
It’s hard to top this success. However, Disney chose to make the new recording “Home Sweet Home Alone,” which premieres on Disney+ Friday.
This is how it is now – 30 years later
The story is similar to the original from 1990. The premise is that boy Max (Archie Yates) and the family go on vacation to Japan. The problem is that Max spent the night before the plane sleeping in the car, and no one in the family remembers when they went to the airport. As in “Alone at Home”, thugs come to his house, this time named Jeff (Rob Delaney) and Pam (Ellie Kemper).
Originally, it was Harry (Daniel Stern) and Marv (Joe Pesci) who did everything to break into the family home. This time a man and a woman.

Good acting and humorous script
Festmo Burger I NRK Filmpolitiet It is, on the other hand, more positive, as the movie gives a dice roll of four. It is believed that the film is not trying to transcend the original, but that does not mean that the film is bad.

– Do your own thing
When it became known last year that a remake was coming, the director behind the first “Alone at Home” movie, Chris Columbus, was asked if he was involved in the movie. Then Columbus expressed it He wasn’t involved, nor happy that the movie was coming up.
– what is the point? I am against remakes of timeless films like “Alone at Home”. You won’t reinvent the wheel. It just doesn’t happen. Why do you do that? Do your thing. Columbus said that even if you fail completely, you can still come up with something original from the inside.
