Home Alone 2 becomes the focus of some well-deserved mockery on the new episode of Saturday Night Live.
You might think that the joke is Kevin McCallister (Melissa Villaseñor) being so self-absorbed and unattuned to the world that he prioritizes spreading Christmas cheer to the pigeons rather than his homeless friend, the Pigeon Lady (Kristen Wiig). But then the Wet Bandits show up and we take a very dark turn.
This short is funny largely because Wiig is a comic master. She turns a very mundane parody into something really amazing with her sharp wit, which includes the way she drops that one pigeon and in the last bit of wisdom she shares with Kevin.
