I liked Adventures in Babysitting more than I should of, if I'm going to be honest. It's a typical campy 80's comedy film that is definitely meant to be family friendly. Despite missing the boat on this film as a kid, I really enjoyed it as an adult. It's funny, cheesy, ridiculous, and a little charming. Definitely not for people looking for something realistic. But anyone looking for a funny film with a healthy dose of 80's cheese will definitely like Adventures in Babysitting.

Kind of fun 80's comedy that contains Thor's first big screen debut.

One of the movies I remember most when in reference to my childhood [and when watching this movie as an adult, I realized my parents were not very careful about movies we watched when I was a wee lad], this film is great. Classic Chris Columbus, this film oozes with 80s charm and urban wit. A masterpiece of comedy, adventure, and the outrageousness of comedy that we all love.

I loved loved loved this movie growing up. It came out when I was seven years old and I still watch it from time to time 21 years later. It's a wildly crazy 80s kid adventure flick. When I was a kid I loved the adventure and I thought Elisabeth Shue and Keith Coogan were sooooo cool. Now as I watch it, I relish in the wondersul 80s fashions and trends. A young Anthony Rapp, of Rent and Dazed and Confused fame, brings many funny one liners in this movie that has become a classic in my house.

Yes, this movie is fluff. But it's such pure, unadulterated fluff that it should be labeled as such by the Food and Drug Administration. The plot is beyond realistic and yet that is what gives this film as much charisma as it has to have remained fairly well known among the Disney watching community. There are a lot of people that would familiarize themselves with Elizabeth Shue in movies such as Back to the Future and as Daniel Larusso's girlfriend in The Karate Kid. But this was one of the films that pushed her career into the spot light. The other thing that I get a kick out of is seeing Vincent D-Onofrio as Thor.
