This is a sassy little comedy of wit and intelligence from the director of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Miss Applegate is charming when the screenplay allows her to slow down. Working against her is the director, Stephen Herek, who pushes every gag so hard and fast that he seems to be keeping up with a laugh track only he can hear.

Rating: 2/4 -- Once the babysitter dies and her body is deposited anonymously on the steps of a funeral home, the movie is free to reveal its real purpose: This is a consumerist, escapist fantasy for teenage girls. Full Review

Product Description:

School is out, mom is on vacation, and the Crandell kids are ready to party! Their baby-sitter, however, has other things in mind. But just as the Crandell kids are about to give up on having any summer fun, the baby-sitter dies leaving them free from adult supervision.

Plot Synopsis:

Christina Applegate, who plays Kelly Bundy in the hit TV show "Married With Children," is the star of this wacky comedy about a group of kids trying to cope with a very weird situation.
While mom takes off for a trip to Australia with her boyfriend, the kids are left in the care of the elderly babysitter from hell. Then things go from bad to worse: the old lady dies, leaving them without a cent to their name.
Teenager Sue Ellen, the oldest sibling, realizes that they'd better do something fast if they want to eat. Because one thing's for sure: no one wants to let mom know that the babysitter's dead...
