Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead

Other mistake: When Sue Ellen gets the roses from Gus, the tickets in the card have a date of April 6th 1990. This is suppose to be the summer of 1990, which means the tickets are no good. (01:03:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sue-Ellen has just come home from work, she places her pocketbook on the kitchen island. In the next scene the secretary is going through Sue-Ellen's office and finds her pocketbook and goes through it. How can that be if Sue-Ellen brought it home with her? (01:17:15 - 01:19:35)

Audio problem: When the drag queens are stealing the kids' car, Sue Ellen and Kenny look at each other and say "Liza," but both of them mouth "sh*t." This was changed to keep the movie's rating down. (00:28:40)
