Chris Parker agrees to babysit for a neighbor after her "dream" date stands her up. Expecting a dull evening with three kids and the TV, the hair-raising adventure soon explodes when her friend Brenda calls and begs to be rescued from the bus station in downtown Chicago.
After her boyfriend cancels a date, 17-year-old Chris agrees to babysit for 15-year-old Brad and his younger sister, Sara. When she gets a call from her best friend who's at the bus stop in downtown Chicago deciding not to run away, Chris packs the kids in the family car to go fetch her. En route, they run into every imaginable hitch, including having to sing the blues to escape a neighborhood club, accidentally stealing vital financial information from the mob, and witnessing a tow-truck driver's wife's infidelities.
