After their trip into the big city in the movie Chris once again is asked to baby sit Brad, Sara and Daryl for the night when a simple trip to the store turns into a hostage situation. ... See full summary »
Simon Templar (The Saint), is a thief for hire, whose latest job to steal the secret process for cold fusion puts him at odds with a traitor bent on toppling the Russian government, as well as the woman who holds its secret.
Chris Parker agrees to babysit after her boyfriend, Mike Todwell, stands her up. Expecting a dull evening, she settles down with three kids for a night of TV...and boredom. But when her frantic friend, Brenda, calls and pleads to be rescued from the bus station in downtown Chicago, the evening soon explodes into an endless whirl of hair raising adventures. Chris and the kids leave their safe suburban surroundings and head for the heart of the big city, never imagining how terrifyingly funny their expedition will become.Written by
When the kids are driving through the alleyway with the car thief, the exterior setting was the same setting used in The Fly (1986), which starred Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis, and which was also filmed in Toronto. The setting was used for the exterior shots of Seth Brundle's apartment/laboratory. See more »
While driving into the City of Chicago, the Sears Tower on the right (meaning they were coming from the south side), but later on, when Pruitt is towing away the car, the Sears Tower is on the left (meaning they're going back south). Plus, they're coming from west suburban Oak Park, which means they shouldn't have been coming from the south going into the city. See more »
The chick is losing it.
I am not!
[to Daryl and Brad]
You guys want some candy?
[Brad takes the chocolate bar from Sara. Chris turns and knocks the candy bar from his hands]
Brad, no chocolate! Your acne! Sara. It is time for your cough syrup. Daryl, fasten the seat belt!
She's definitely losing it.
I am not losing anything, I am still in control here! Got it?

A really sweet and innocent comedy about a girl who babysits but has to take a tour downtown.
This is a really funny movie because you never really know where it's going. Basically everything that happens in it happens by accident. It's not only funny but also exciting if you aren't that old. I think it's great.
It sort of reminds me about "Afterhours" (starring Griffin Dunne) but this is the family version of that movie. Anything can happen during a crazy night or so it seems. Elisabeth Shue is good in this movie and everyone in it seems to have had a good time making it. If you just want to see a cute movie which makes you feel good , or if you've had enough of over-dramatic epics , action that blows you out of your seat and bloody horror movies , check this out. It's sweet , funny , lovable and adventurous all at the same time. If you don't like it , there are more than enough of violence out there for you.
