      Adventures in Babysitting was a fun little movie directed by Chris Columbus that came out in the eighties. Elizabeth Shue plays the perfect combination of girl-next-door and blonde bombshell who every guy wants to call his girlfriend. Starring in the title role, Shue hams it up nicely as the girlfriend rejected by her (as she discovers) louse of a boyfriend who cancels their big date because his sister is

      home sick and he must stay home to take care of her.

      Starting with her night of babysitting to fill-in-the-void, Shue endures one mishap after another. Of course, none of the string of incidents are evenly remotely plausible, but each is fun and sometimes funny (even suspenseful) to watch play out. Gags and gaffes aren’t limited to Shue’s character, though.Everyone gets their share of the limelight as the ...


      • night wears on.

        Some of the funniest scenes involve when people mistake Shue’s character for a Playboy centerfold. This all begins when one of the kids nabs his father’s private collection and tries to show it to his best friend (two of the three kids babysat and along for the ride).

        From high tension scenes (tip-toeing across rafters) to scaling skyscrapers, SHue and the rest of the kids engage in

        someof the funniest, most endearing fun Chris Columbus has directed. And this happened to be early in his career. This one set the pace for what would come to be known as a recognizeable Chris Columbus film. And what a way to start out!

        If anyone is looking for a fun live-action family film with only a bit of “adult content”, Adventures in Babysitting is probably your surest bet.
