Storyline

When a petty criminal escapes from jail, she lays low by posing as a babysitter for two semmingly precious children. But when she decides to sell them for a quick profit, she gets more than she bargained for. A wildy clever family comedy in the tradition of "Home Alone" and "Mrs. Doubtfire". Written by Concorde - New Horizons (with permission).

C movie with A comedy
25 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Look this picture isn't winning any academy awards, but you have to watch it with the right frame of mind. The humor is as dark as they can get away with for the time and mainstream market. It's about selling children. You can either find the humor in that or you can't. If you're that guy that always laughs when someone falls down the stairs, then you're probably going to enjoy this movie. Perhaps a better litmus test would be if you enjoyed "Welcome to the Dollhouse." Beverly D'Angelo really delivers on the humor of the script and I think her talent is often overlooked. The only real problem is that the movie was pushed too hard for a mainstream market. This movie borderlines on campy but doesn't go quite far enough to be a cult classic. You can choose to watch it with an open mind and enjoy it for what it is, or be too uptight about the comedy and miss the whole point.
