Home Alone: The Holiday Heist (or Home Alone 5) is an American children's criminal family comedy television movie. It is set in Maine. It is the fifth movie in the successful Home Alone movie series. It stars Christian Martyn, Malcolm McDowell, Debi Mazar, Eddie Steeples. The movie was first shown on ABC Family on November 25, 2012.[1][2] It is the second and final film to be made-for-television. Like Home Alone 3, it does not focus on the McCallister family or any of the characters from the first two movies. Home Alone: Taking Back The House has some of the main characters from the first two movies, but all of the roles have different actors. It includes many references to the original movies.
