She gets worried upon learning that they have her friend Ray (a wise guitar-playing janitor) tied up. Therefore, Izzy decides it’s up to her to save the day. So she sets about pranking the robbers in hilarious ways. Directed by Michael Kampa, this ‘Home Alone’ clone stars Danny Glover, Cameron Seely, Katrina Begin, and Denise Richards in lead roles.
