Home Alone 2: Lost In New York (1992)

Home Alone 2 has a preposterous plot but it's even more preposterous to see Ally Sheedy reduced to playing an under-five ticketing agent!   He's not forgotten this time, but after another mad-dash to the airport, Kevin McAllister is separated from his family and boards a plane for the Big Apple.  In a city of millions of people, he just happens to run into the two burglars he outsmarted from the first film.  Wash, rinse, repeat.  Despite the recycling, it is a staple on my Christmas movie list.
