Remote (1993)

Remote (1993)

Directed by: Ted Nicolaou

Starring: Chris Carrara, Jessica Bowman, John Diehl

“All right, Home Alone was good, but we can do it better! For instance, there isn’t a single shot of the kid playing with a remote control car… so let’s make our movie NOTHING BUT THAT! BRILLIANT!”

This one nerd kid really, REALLY likes remote control cars and planes and what have you. His parents threaten to take away his toys after an accident, so he takes them all and hides out in the attic of a model home, where he meets George Michael Sr. Wait, no, three crooks hide out in the house, and the kid feels compelled to fuck with them with his various devices.

I don’t really know what else there is to say. Home Alone spawned a billion clones, so much so that it’s basically a genre on its own, and Remote doesn’t take any chances by doing anything new or interesting with the formula. An easily skipped film.
