Home alone 1 vs Home alone 2..What is your fav?
I much, much prefer part one as it felt fresh and original at the time. Also I felt John Hughes script was much tighter and clever than part 2. I watched both back to back and I do feel part 2 suffers when watched right after the 1st one. Part 2 is pushing the suspension of disbelief to breaking point. I know the first one is far from realistic but the second one is so ridiculous that it nearly feels like a parody of the first one. The shovel man was one of the emotional part of the first one and he was a well written character and I loved that scene he had in the church with Kevin, in comparison the bird lady did not have the same emotional depth and she clearly felt like she was written to take the place of the shovel man from part 1. Also I know the actress who play bird lady she lives in Dublin and I always see her on the week end when I go to the market.She's retired now, she always say she wants to adopt my dog lol so it sorts of break the fantasy. Not a bad film and I loved it as a kid but as an adult part one is definitely my favorite out of the two.share
