In time-flies news, the comedy “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead” turns 30 this week! Initially released on June 7, 1991, the film (which is currently streaming on HBO Max) didn’t exactly garner big box office numbers or rave reviews upon its debut but thanks to regular airings on HBO as well as VHS rentals (remember those?) became a cult favorite and remains insanely popular today. Not only is there a remake in the works with Treehouse Pictures, but the lines “The dishes are done, man!” and “I’m right on top of that, Rose!” endure as oft-quoted fixtures of the pop culture lexicon.
