Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead

I choose this rating (5/5) because the movie is good. What I like about the movie is that “It's Home Alone times five.” (Jeff Craig, Sixty Second Preview) It's a summer full of unexpected fun and foul play when mom takes a trip to Australia leaving Sue Ellen (Christina Applegate, “Married with Children”) and the kids behind. What they didn't expect was the babysitter mom left to take care of them-an elderly tyrant who's ready to make their lives miserable-until she keels over dead on the first night. Now the kids figure they can have the summer of their dreams, only they don't have any money for the basics-like movies, dates, and pizza. It's up to Sue Ellen to find a job, but to make it in the adult world she has to fake it from the top of her resume to the tip of her nail polish. If she succeeds, Sue Ellen and the kids are going to have a summer they'll never forget... so long as they Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead. What I dislike about the movie is that I wanted to see more of it. I would recommend this movie to other people.
