There are a series of not-so-great Christmas sequels that were released that you’ve probably never heard of.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation 2: Cousin Eddie’s Island Adventure (2003). This time around, Eddie (Randy Quaid) and his family find themselves celebrating Christmas while trapped on a tropical island. Who knew that movie existed?!?!
Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House (2002). Kevin McCallister (Mike Weinberg) has to defend his house--actually his divorced dad’s girlfriend’s house--where he’s spending Christmas.
Home Alone: The Holiday Heist (2012). This film opted for a brand new set of characters, but the set-up is the same: Christmas, thieves and a booby-trapped house.
A Christmas Story 2 (2012). This direct-to-video sequel takes place five years after the first movie. Ralphie, having worn down his father enough to get a Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range model air rifle, now has his heart set on a car.
