Not based on the slightly pretty reasonable Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992), and not the lack lustre Home Alone 3(1997). Especially not the direct to video Home Alone 4 (2002) or Home Alone: Holiday Heist(2012). For Goodness sake, it is not even based on the new version – Home Sweet Home Alone, coming to Disney+ in November 2021.
