Adventures in Babysitting Reviews

James Plath
Movie Metropolis

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.

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

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

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