I’m right on top of that Rose! It’s the box-office bomb that became an all-time Cult Classic. Cristina Applegate stars as Sue Ellen Crandell, a teenager who is eagerly awaiting her mother’s summer-long absence for a season of fun in the sun. But when the babysitter abruptly dies and her siblings run wild, she’s got more problems than a sunburn, she’s got to join the rat race to keep them all mom-free. Grunion runs, clown dogs, drag queens, and the ultimate 90’s fashion show are just some of the delights of this timeless teen classic. So bring your friends or siblings for some summer fun, because as you’ll soon know The Dishes are Done!
