: She thought babysitting was easy money - until she started hanging out with the Andersons.

"Adventures In Babysitting" was Chris Columbus' directorial debut & it is one of the better teen comedies to come out of the 80's.  Elisabeth Shue, in her first major starring role, plays Chris, a babysitter who takes the children she is in charge of, with her to downtown Chicago to help out a friend who is in need. This is when the fun begins as Shue & the kids go from one mad-cap disaster to another, before returning home safe & sound. Shue is excellent as the teenage babysitter & the musical number, "And Then He Kissed Me" that Shue mimes in the opening credit sequence is a standout. Another highlight in the film is Shue & the kids performing the "Babysitter's Blues" in a Chicago niteclub. "Adventures In Babysitting" is a fun film that can be enjoyed by everyone, teens & adults.
"Adventures In Babysitting" is now on DVD.
