Bachelor and all-round slob Buck babysits his brother's rebellious teenage daughter and her cute younger brother and sister.
Some later VHS releases removed the adult family members from the poster artwork (leaving just Macaulay Culkin and Gaby Hoffmann behind the door Buck is about to knock) to put emphasis on the two popular child stars.
Get your bag off the table, people eat there.
Maisey Russell: People eat off of plates.
Tia: Don't give me any crap, Maizy.
When Miles unpacks the lunch that Uncle Buck has made for him and asks the boy to his right "Would you like to talk about a possible lunch trade?" (27:51 to 28:10), the scene cuts to an overhead shot (28:11 to 28:12) of the three boys at his table propelling their chairs backwards across the room. The overhead cut has numerous continuity errors. At 28:11, (1) Miles is still unpacking his lunch so his hand is back in the lunch bag and he is missing the canned sardines and two plastic bags, (2) the boy to Miles' right is wearing a solid purple shirt rather than a blue shirt with black stripes, and (3) the sandwich in the right hand of the boy to Miles' right has been replaced with a bag of Fritos.
When the movie finishes, John Candy's voice yells "Wake up!", followed by the sound of an air horn and John laughing.
Scenes from Maisy's classroom are edited from TV-versions.
