Where to watch Home Alone: Stream Home Alone 2 and more

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The holiday season is officially in full swing. More importantly, the holiday movie season is off and running. From romantic comedies to family classics, there are plenty of titles to choose from for your next movie night. However, it just wouldn’t be the holiday season without sitting down to watch one of the most iconic Christmas films of all time, Home Alone.

The 1990 holiday classic stars Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister, the eight-year-old boy accidentally left at home when his family flies to Paris for Christmas vacation. At first, Kevin enjoys his freedom, eating ice cream at all hours of the day and staying up late to watch scary movies. When his house becomes the target of two burglars, Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern), it’s up to Kevin to defend his house and save Christmas. Experience the Christmas hijinks of Home Alone in the comfort of your own home on a streaming service.

Where to watch Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992) Trailer #1 | Movieclips Classic Trailers

As much as we love the original Home Alone, we have a soft spot for its sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. You can’t go wrong with Kevin running amok in the Big Apple, conning his way past Tim Curry, Dana Ivey, and Rob Schneider to stay at the iconic Plaza Hotel, and meeting the fearsome (and sure to be stinky) Pidgeon Lady, played by Academy Award winner Brenda Fricker.

As you can expect, you can find Home Alone‘s sequel on the same platform as the original. That’s right, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is also on Disney+, along with the far inferior sequels Home Alone 3, Home Alone 4, Home Alone: The Holiday Heist, and the recent reboot, Home Sweet Home Alone. We advise to stick with Mac and watch the first two only though.
