Adventures in Babysitting Synopsis

Chris has a big night out planned when her boyfriend cancels on her. She agrees to babysit for Sarah, a preteen girl, and sarah's older brother, Brad. She's settled in for a dull night when a friend calls her to say she's marooned at a downtown bus station, with very seedy characters around. The three (plus Brad's friend, Daryl) get into Chris' station wagon for a trip to the inner city.

Another one of those 80's teen comedies that proudly straddled the Family and Teen genres - an utter rarity these days - yet gets everything right. Shue is superb, her mettle and comic timing sharp and brimming with fizz. The supporting cast are all highly sympathetic and get at least one zinger line each. What could have been an extremely pedestrian film full of unbelievable mishaps strung together by a flimsy plot, is anything but. Interestingly, Penelope Ann Miller, as Shue's nerdy best friend stuck in a bus station who gets a smattering of short scenes, has the most memorable moments. This is one of those films that gets better with repeat viewings.

  • One of my favourite 80s films. The opening credits, singin' the blues, all of Penelope Ann Miller's scenes - love it!
