Product Description


Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead aspires to be a cross between Home Alone and Risky Business, with Christina Applegate as an inadvertent scam artist who gets in over her head and somehow pulls it off. When her mother goes to Australia for two months, Sue Ellen (Applegate) thinks she's going to be in charge--until an elderly tyrant of a babysitter arrives. But on the very first night the old lady has a heart attack and keels over. Sue Ellen and her siblings leave the body at a mortuary, only to discover afterward that all the money their mother had left for the summer was in the babysitter's clothes. So Sue Ellen has to get a job. Thanks to a trumped-up resume, she ends up as an executive assistant at a clothing manufacturer. For a while she keeps her head above water by skillfully exploiting a friendly coworker, but her brothers and sisters are running amok at home and a venomous receptionist has it in for her at work. The role-reversal humor of Sue Ellen having to mother her siblings is unsurprising, but Applegate is unexpectedly appealing; her scenes with Josh Charles (Dead Poet's Society, Threesome) have a sweet chemistry. Joanna Cassidy (Blade Runner, The Laughing Policeman) plays Sue Ellen's boss and a young David Duchovny (The X-Files, The Rapture) is a weaselly clerk. --Bret Fetzer

3.0 out of 5 stars poor Quality Oct. 7 2013

I love this movie but I found that the copy I had received had poor quality. It made me dizzy to watch sometimes and I feel as though my VHS copy had better picture quality. On a side note, the delivery was super fast and it was an inexpensive purchase :)

This too was purchased for my daughter for Mother's Day who had watched it several times as a young person. She commented that she now sees and understands a lot of the things that didn't click on her years ago.

2.0 out of 5 stars don't tell anyone you watched this movie Nov. 18 2007
By falcon
it isn't good.i didn't find it funny at all.i did find it boring and
stupid,though,so i guess that's something.not something good,but still
something.i couldn't finish the whole movie,i was so bored.in the 45
minutes i watched,i never laughed once.i figured if the movie wasn't
good by then,it wasn't gonna get any better.the premise is an
interesting one,but the execution falls flatter than than a
pancake.somewhere between page and scree it falls apart.the average
rating here is 4/5 and i would have to disagree with that rating.for
me,Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead is a just slightly above awful

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead July 10 2004
By Mac
Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead is an okay movie; it is different and that makes it different from any other slapstick comedy.The cast isn't that big besides Applegate.The old lady in the beggining is really funny.It is full of funny moments, but the plot is to different and that is what made me give it a lower rating.The is definetly a perfect six.The children in this film are so trashy and realistic in that kind of setting and I think that's hilarious.Applegate does a great job and serves up quiet a few laughs.The pothead older brother is kind of annoying along with some other characters.One of the main promlems is that the film is so predictable.The outfits and hair cuts are fun to make fun of when there is nothing really important is going on.If you are up for a good laugh and something deifferent check it out, but don't expect to much from this little comedy.
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...
"Predictable, but not wholly unlikable."
