When Chris is talking with Brad and Sara in their living room, scenes from the movie Halloween can be seen on their television. As you have previously read, Debrah Hill is the producer of this film and Halloween as well. See more »
Throughout a lot of the shots of the gang in Chicago, Brad and Sara's parents' building is shown facing them as they are running through the city. This is geographically impossible, as the diamond cut of the building actually faces Lake Michigan. See more »
That was Mrs. Anderson, she wants to know if you can babysit tonight.
[sees the look Brenda gives her]
No, tell her I can't.
Because I want to sit at home and be depressed.
Oh, sit for the Andersons, that'll depress anyone.
Mom, I'm too old to babysit.

The UK cinema version (released as "A Night On The Town") was cut by 8 secs for a PG rating to remove uses of the word 'fuck'. Later video versions were released under the original title and uncut after being upgraded to a 15 certificate. The print UK television uses for daytime showings however is the PG-friendly cut cinema version, carrying the 'A Night On The Town' title - so it can appear on UK television under both titles at times depending on the time of day it is shown.

One of those movies you grow out of, but don't stop liking
I grew up with this movie and always wanted to be like Chris. She was so beautiful and handled the toughest situations so well. She took the deadliest situations and got the kids out of them so safely. Well, now I babysit and I'm glad I never got in the same situation, but it still made for a great and fun movie.
Chris is a senior who has a big date planned with her boyfriend, but when he cancels, she is forced to babysit the Anderson's daughter, Sara. They also have a son, Brad is a couple years younger and has a huge crush on Chris and decides to cancel on his friend, Darrel to stay home with Chris. But when Chris's best friend, Brenda, calls her from the Anderson's, she finds out her friend is stranded at a bus station and can't get anyone else to help her. So Chris takes Brad and Sara and is forced to take Darrel since he won't leave them alone, they all go into the city of Chicago and end up getting a flat and get into one deadly situation after the next, even getting chased by the Mafia!
This is a fun flick that I still watch 'til this day and have so much fun with. I would always recommend this also for anyone, I truly hope it is discovered by new generations. I still enjoy singing along with the "Babysitting Blues", I think I finally feel Chris's pain, after all, I'm too old to babysit. :D
