This film provides examples of:
- The Film of the Book: The film is a general adaptation of the Baby-Sitters Club books. It's not based on one specific book.
- 555: The phone numbers begin with 555.
- In Medias Res: The film starts several books in. Dawn and Mary Anne are already step-sisters and Mary Anne had her haircut already.
- Most Writers Are Adults: True to the books, most of the 12-13 year old girls act more like 15-17 year olds.
- Sand In My Eyes: Kristy protests to her mother that she's not crying— she's got allergies.
- Visit by Divorced Dad: The movie has Kristy's Disappeared Dad visit for the summer. He only reveals himself to his thirteen-year-old daughter (ignoring his fifteen-, seventeen-, and seven-year-old sons), forcing her to keep it secret and basically lie to her family and friends all summer, before he leaves unexpectedly because his job prospect didn't pan out.
