Then her friend Brenda (Creator/PenelopeAnnMiller) (best known as Mrs. Elizabeth Louise 'Betty Lou' Perkins in ''The Gun in Betty Lous Handbag'') calls in a panic, having tried to run away from home with just enough money to cover cab fare to the bus station and the cost of a payphone call, and she asks Chris to pick her up in the city. Chris can't leave her charges behind unsupervised, so she takes them and Brad's friend Daryl Coopersmith (Anthony Rapp) along with her. She gets a flat on the highway en route, then realizes she forgot her purse. Things just get more crazy from there.

Creator/ChrisColumbus' directing debut, and the first starring role for Shue, this 1987 comedy was also the first PG-13 film released by Creator/{{Disney}} (albeit under the Creator/TouchstonePictures label, to avoid the association with strictly family content) (same goes with ''Creator/{{Paramount}}'' when they released a PG-13 follow-up which is ''Film/TheBradyBunch'' after what ''Elisabeth Shue'' did to make fun of ''Series/TheBradyBunch'').
