Silly but fun comedy for an MTV audience starring Christina Applegate as a young girl who supports her siblings by getting a job after the elderly babysitter dies when their mother goes away on vacation.
It's not particularly memorable and the story is quite lamentable, but considering the sillyness of the title, you pretty much get what you expect.
4/10
