You get in that bed, young man.
Excuse me, but I saw a man in Karen Stephen’s bedroom, a little older than Dad, and he was wearing butt inspection gloves.
I have warned you about that telescope. You look through it long enough, you’re gonna start seeing things, whether or not they’re there.
Well, I guess you have to be 35 before anyone around here listens to you.
Don’t get smart with me, Alex. Sick or not, I am very angry with you. You caused a lot of trouble today. Dad and I have to replace a door at the Stephens’. Do you think we’re happy about that?
This movie is not so bad
Everybody says this movie sucks…i don’t think that at
We can’t have kevin forever…he’s gotta grow up at some
That’s why it was good to go with a new family that would keep the spirit of
home alone alive…remember it’s for the kids.
plus the bad guys were more advanced then marv & harry (not saying that i
didn’t like marv & harry) but these guys had high-tec equitment that was
pretty cool. This movie was new,fresh,well acted & had good direction.
WAY-TO-GO JOHN HUGHES!!!!
