Five siblings are left alone all summer when their mom leaves town and the evil babysitter bites the dust.
The original script was written with Winona Ryder in mind for the role of Sue Ellen Crandell. Justine Bateman was later cast as Sue Ellen but then left the project. Christina Applegate was cast after her Married with Children (1987) costar Ed O'Neill, who was friends with a producer of the film, gave her the script.

Bryan: I am the stork of fast food.
