i said the same thing.i dont even think or consider 3 being part of the series.they just probably added a 3 to it since they wouldnt be able to call it home alone....but the 1st one is my favorite.i like the 2nd one but i would watch 1 over 2.

Home Alone 4 is supposed to be Kevin and one of the Burglars is supposed to be Marv. The movie is pretty bad.

Well, the 3rd one I saw only once. It was awful, and I never watched it again. Haven't seen the 4th one yet.

So the first 2 Home Alone movies get a big 2 Thumbs UP, the 3rd gets a big 2 Thumbs DOWN.

I go back and forth between 1 and 2. 3 totally stunk. My kids love them but my step-daughters call each other buttheads a lot after they watch them. Not too cute after awhile.

I love 1 the best. 2 is pretty good and I don't totally despise 3. I just don't include it in my Christmas viewing! I didn't even know there was a 4!!!

I loved 2. Just the idea of wandering around a big city on your own, with hundreds of other people but nevertheless, you were alone. And this time, he wasn't even "home". I just think it had a much bigger scope and much more heart (the bird lady, the scene in the park at the end.)

For some reason Roger Ebert like the third one better than the first two. Something about more character development or something.
