What? That's a fantastic title. It's original, memorable, fits the movie to a tee, and all while conveying far more about its subject than the vast majority of titles manage to do.
Many (good)titles can be taken different ways, but there's no mistaking the snarky humor found in "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead,"
and most people will instantly have a vague notion of kids disobeying their parents while away.
If you want good titles to compare to, you can start right here Mister.
