Home Alone: Taking Back the House (also known as Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House or simply known as Home Alone 4) is an American family criminal comedy television movie. It first aired on ABC on November 3, 2002. Home Alone 4 was directed by Rod Daniel and is the fourth movie in the Home Alone movie series.

The movie has some of the main characters from the first two movies, but all of the roles are played by different actors. The story is in Chicago, but the movie was actually filmed in South Africa.

The movie was not very popular. A planned TV series based on the movie was cancelled because of the poor reviews. It's an intrequel to the first two movies. In the film, Kevin (Mike Weinberg) gets upset when he hears his parents, Peter and Kate McCalister (Jason Beghe and Clare Carey) will get divorced. He is forced to choose where to celebrate Christmas, at his house or at his dad and his new wife, Natalie's (Joanna Going) mansion. Begrudgingly, he chooses to spend it at Natalie's mansion. However, when he gets there, he has to protect the house from his old nemesis Marv (French Stewart) and his wife/sidekick, Vera (Missi Pyle).
