    Watched this for about the 30th time in bed this morning. I will never get tired of this movie. This is true 80s nostalgia. From the station wagon, to the subway gangs and payphone booths, it's a trip down memory lane to a much simpler america.

    Sporadically funny, kid-friendly version of AFTER HOURS

    Adventures in Babysitting is the sillier, kids version of Scorsese's terrific black comedy After Hours.
    This is the template for the recent and pretty bad comedy "The Sitter".

    Basically, the story is about a babysitter, who because of a rather stupid friend who for some reason "ran away from home" to the bus station, needs to go and pick up her friend.

Even just the way that 'the city' is considered as and is portrayed as is a really amusing look into that culture's mindset. I suppose…

    I've just seen three people shoot up, a bald Chinese lady with no pants on, and there's an old guy outside who wants his bedroom slippers!

    Adventures in Babysitting was one of my earliest introductions to Chicago in movies. I think that's part of why I was never intimidated by the Second City and instead always saw it as a place for excitement and possibility. Elisabeth Shue is immensely likable in this role, starting with that terrific lip syncing performance that opens the film, right through her showdown with the two gangs on the El, and onto the cheesy wrap-up at the end.

    This is one…
