    Though many people know Elisabeth Shue as Jennifer from Back to the Future II, they don’t recognize her as Chris from Adventures in Babysitting. A classic 80’s movie all about a group of teenagers, (accompanied by a tiny child Thor who Chris is also stuck babysitting) who go through an all-night adventure before the parents get back home. Sound familiar? This movie takes the concept of Ferris Bueller's Day Off and moves it up a peg in the most memorable…

    I have nothing to offer here. Not really the kind of movie where you pay a lot of attention to anything. It's there as something familiar. Background noise. For me, anyway. Loved the opening credits, especially (though the other musical number always kind of makes me cringe for some reason).

    Holds up surprisingly well. I little bit of bad acting, but otherwise great fun.

    Adventures in Babysitting is one of those "classic" 80's films that people always talk about. It adds up to a fun enough movie, but some of the pieces are problematic, including an amazing scene where four white kids from the suburbs teach an entire club full of black urbanites about the real meaning of the blues. Stereotypes are all over the place in this movie, racial and otherwise, though my favorite character is probably Joe Gipp (Calvin Levels), the cart…

    Having not seen this movie in nearly two decades, I decided to revisit it. When beautiful Chris (Elizabeth Shue) is stood up by her boyfriend, she takes on a babysitting job, that turns into an insane adventure through the mean streets of Chicago. It's kind of like THE WARRIORS meets FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF.

    Shue isn't too hard on the eyes, and both Keith Coogan (Brad) and Anthony Rapp (Daryl) play well of each other. However its Maia Brewton that…

    Adventures in Babysitting is one of those movies soaked in "80's-isms", and while some of the time an aspect like that can work against a film, it mostly works in this film's favor. There's a certain cute charm to the movie and the main group is fairly endearing for the most part, especially Elizabeth Shue. Even the youngest kid, a type of character who more often than not can be pretty annoying or overwritten in movies such as this, was…

    What an entertaining watch!
    80s cult is definitely one of the greatest 'genre' of film.

    The babysitter blues really got me going, was in tears.

    This is the reason so many of us young boys developed a crush on Elizabeth Shue in the 80s.

    This movie.

    It's pretty funny. Chris Columbus made his bones as the screenwriter of several quirky kiddie movies. But he didn't write his directorial debut... As such, it's a madcap misadventure in the John Hughes mold.

    It comes off a little bit like a noir variation on Ferris Bueller's Day Off. It actually resembles that movie quite a bit, as far…
