About the DVD
In this hilarious holiday tale for all ages, 10-year-old Finn Baxter (Christian Martyn) thinks his family's new house in Maine is haunted - but the truth might be even scarier! A trio of thieves (led by Malcolm McDowell) is after a priceless painting hidden in a secret room by the previous owner. So when Finn and his sister (Jodelle Ferland) find themselves home alone, Finn rigs up an elaborate array of techno-gadgets and booby traps to protect his pad from the bumbling criminals trying to break in. It's a delightful comedy caper that will steal your heart again and again!

My Take on the DVD
My kids liked the first two Home Alone movies, but I have to be honest and say that they were luke warm to this one. Not that there was bad acting or anything, just a bit weaker plot and a story line that seems to keep coming back in these movies. We didn't think that it was as funny as the original movies and our young daughters were actually a bit scared when it came to the idea of ghosts. While in the end this is a good family movie, it just was not the same as the original cast and family from the first round of movies.
