Adventures in Babysitting

A night of babysitting goes awry for Chris, the leading lady.

 I look no further than this movie if ever I’m in need of a good pick me up. In certain ways, it’s your typical 80s’ teen movie, but what I love about it is that it also goes beyond the typical: take for instance, the characters portrayed (like the young girl who idolizes the superhero Thor of all people), or the sticky situations they get into, which forces them to step out of their comfort zones. It’s a lot of fun, and I always enjoy watching it (and sort of wish my babysitting gigs were this insane). Now why don’t they ever run it on AMC???

The best line of the movie belongs to Chris for saying:
