Adventures in Babysitting Reviews

Easy-to-take effort that primarily benefits from a charming performance by Elisabeth Shue.

Like "Home Alone," "Adventures in Babysitting" is a lightweight comic adventure, but it's effective in what it sets out to do . . . and that's entertain.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

The light tone, classical style, and Shue as Sandra Dee stand-in are more indicative of a cinematic mindset from approximately 25 years earlier.

Seemed fun at the time, in '87, but dates badly. Still, kids might like it.

Chris sets off on a rescue mission, and ends up running the gauntlet of big city perils in a belaboured spinning-out of a weak storyline.

Fun for kids, maybe. Sheer drudgery for anyone beyond a Jr. High School reading comprehension level.

Aw, c'mon, who can't like a movie that has The Mighty Thor as a major component?

So much fun it might make babysitting a real career choice.

A fluffy but extremely lovable teen fantasy that folks of a certain age will remember with great fondness.

By the end of the film, I'd had a couple of real laughs and a few interesting moments, but that was about all.

This is really just innocent material with a tendency to flout basic guidelines and stray from the perimeters of believability.

A sweet-natured, adolescent variation on the big-city black comedy After Hours.
