DON’T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER’S DEAD
1991, 102 min, United States, Dir: Stephen Herek

“Dishes are done, man!” Sue Ellen (Christina Applegate) and her siblings (including ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING’s Keith Coogan and HALLOWEEN 4’s Danielle Harris) are left with a particularly nasty babysitter when their mother goes to Austria for the summer. By divine intervention, the babysitter dies, leaving the kids free to enjoy their summer as they please - until they realize that all the money their mom left for them went with the now-deceased babysitter to the mortuary. Forced to support her family and save the summer, Sue Ellen lands a dream job at a fashion company by using a fictitious résumé. Now she must keep up the charade so no one at the company finds out who she really is and for that matter, that the babysitter is dead.


WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT?
1988, Disney, 103 min, USA, Dir: Robert Zemeckis

Director Robert Zemeckis (BACK TO THE FUTURE), with the help of producer Steven Spielberg, made this exhilarating, groundbreaking movie blending live-action and animation, with real people and cartoon characters co-existing in 1940s Hollywood. Toon star Roger Rabbit (voiced by Charles Fleischer) goes to down-on-his-luck private eye Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins), hiring him to investigate his supposedly two-timing wife, Jessica. With Joanna Cassidy, Christopher Lloyd, Stubby Kaye. "Sheer, enchanted entertainment from the first frame to the last - a joyous, giddy, goofy celebration of the kind of fun you can have with a movie camera." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
