Adventures in Babysitting
Well, it was released by Disney's Touchstone film division but no matter...
It's always been one of my favorite films for several reasons, Elisabeth Shue, being one of them.... but I won't digress with childhood fantasies that I'm sure everone shared back then. It's simply a fun ride and one of those films you can watch over and over, only to appreciate it all the more... much like our beloved Short Circuit.
The film touches on almost every genre one could want... action, comedy, drama, musical, romance and even jokes around a bit with horror subplots. Speaking of which, it was co-produced by Debra Hill, procucer of John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN and various other gems... and there's even an easter egg scene wherein Chris and Sara are watching Halloween. Obviously not a well-known fact but now YOU know.
It boasts an AMAZING soundtrack that fits the mood of the film perfectly... mind you, an unreleased soundtrack that I've recently compiled via hunting down every track used in the film... not an easy task but well worth the effort.
Well I could go on and on with the various reasons why I love this film... but I'll simply suggest you watch it and judge for yourself.
You can WATCH
it on youtube, believe it or not!
