Critic Reviews of "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead"Variety Staff VarietyJuly 25, 2007
Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead starts with an enjoyable, if crude, black comedy situation promised by the title, but then it turns into an incredibly dumb teenage girl's fantasy of making it in the business world.Vincent Canby New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Miss Applegate is charming when the screenplay allows her to slow down. Working against her is the director, Stephen Herek, who pushes every gag so hard and fast that he seems to be keeping up with a laugh track only he can hear.Peter Travers Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
Blame the smash of Home Alone for the new herd of kids-on-the-loose movies. Let's hope none are dumber than this one.Hal Hinson Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Don't tell the studio, but its movie's dead. And as we used to say as kids -- rest in pieces.Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Once the babysitter dies and her body is deposited anonymously on the steps of a funeral home, the movie is free to reveal its real purpose: This is a consumerist, escapist fantasy for teenage girls.Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema CrazedFebruary 23, 2013
A fun experience for anyone who remembers fawning over Christina Applegate.Brian OrndorfJune 09, 2011
A picture with obvious flaws, but one that attempts to subvert the norm with a few curveball jokes here and there. It's not awful. It's not good either.Ken Hanke Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)September 04, 2003
Predictable, but not wholly unlikable.Jeffrey M. Anderson San Francisco ExaminerAugust 30, 2002
A would-be black comedy that turns white too earlyScott Weinberg eFilmCritic.comJuly 26, 2002
Silly and pretty mindless, but still a worthwhile cable-time comedy.
