We all have those movies that we love even though no one else has heard of them. There are way too many to list them all, but when it comes to weird cult classics, Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter Is Dead is one that you absolutely need to remember.
If you've never seen it, the premise is exactly as weird as the title would lead you to believe. When the Candrell kid's mom is on a vacation for the summer she leaves her kids with a babysitter who passes away. This leaves the eldest Candrell sibling, Sue Ellen, to find a way to earn money to support her younger siblings.
Honestly there are so many questions that we have for this movie, some of which are answered by in the movie, but let's get into them.
1. Why does this mother leave her children for two months with a stranger?
Having kids is hard, especially when you are single. But honestly, leaving your children with a total stranger for two months while you go half a world away seems like a questionable choice. Also, maybe you should have a backup person come check on your kids every few days to make sure the stranger you left in your home is doing a good job.
2. Does a 17-year-old really want to take care of her siblings?
If it were me and my younger siblings were relying on me to take care of them I would definitely call for backup as soon as I could.
3. Do these kids go to jail for dumping a dead body?
I have never dealt with a dead body personally, but I feel like leaving it in a trunk at a funeral home is not the proper protocol.
