Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the young child in this slapstick comedy has to face adult burglars by himself because nobody believes that he's telling the truth. The kid's attempts at fighting back include lots of slapstick violence and comedic peril (falls, injuries, hot fondue incidents) ... just like in the rest of the Home Alone movies. There are also clumsy attempts at coping with the issues of divorce and adult relationships.
Kevin's dad and his girlfriend share long, sensual kisses.
Slapstick violence and perilous scenes: a mansion gets flooded and trashed, the bad guys fall through a window, feet get stomped on, boiling buckets of fondue drop on heads. Kevin's brother bullies him, while their mom does nothing about it.
Bullying language between siblings: "lame brain," "cheese face," "wedgie," etc. Bad guys tell Kevin to shut up and call him a moron.
Though the moral of this story ends up pointing to the joys of homey family life, the excesses of extreme wealth are so prevalent that the humble life seems absolutely bland by comparison.

Adults drink wine and champagne at dinner and parties. Kevin's dad's girlfriend "goes out" every night.
