Chris is about to go on the best date of her life with her totally cocky boyfiend Mike. Mike shows up at her door and cancels their date claiming his little sister got sick and he needs to take care of her. Chris decides to accept a job babysitting for Brad(who has a huge crush on Chris) and Sarah, the kids who live down the street. All is going well that night until Chris' friend Brenda calls from a train station in Chicago, pleading with Chris to come and pick her up there. Chris agrees to take Brad and Sarah with her to go pick up Brenda. Brad's undersexed friend Darryl convinces Chris to let him tag along also. Chris blows a tire on her Mom's station wagon on a major expressway. The four wait to be towed back to a garage, when the garage owner catches his wife cheating on him. The garage owner fires a gun and the kids jump into an empty car. The car is then stolen with them in it and brought back to a "chop shop" where the kids are held captive. The kids escape from the shop, but Darryl has taken an issue of Playboy with some important numbers and contact information written on it. This causes the owners of the shop to chase the kids all throughout the city on a wild goose chase adventure.
