Should Home Alone 2 character, Kevin McCallister, be in jail?

We all know and love the Home Alone series and for many Christmas isn’t Christmas until it’s been watched at least once. But when The Secret Barrister sat down to watch Home Alone 2, he spotted a series of legal issues which included the possibility of Kevin being sent to prison for four years. Now admittedly he’s applying English and Welsh Law to a film set in America, but heh, it’s all a bit of fun, so sit back enjoy the crtique through the medium of Twitter.


This lecture explores the Christmas classic ‘Home Alone 2’ through the lens of English and Welsh law.

Contributions and observations are welcome, but I’m perfectly prepared to tweet the entire film to a wall of embarrassed silence.
