Chris Columbus' charming comedy Adventures in Babysitting comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. There are no subtitles, but the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. Although there are no supplemental materials of any consequence, the inexpensive list price makes this disc a great purchase for anyone looking for a comedy the whole family can enjoy.
It's a 80's classic Great for adults & kids would.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Teenage film holds up for adults too.
First watched this movie on ABC family I think, and I thought I would give it try. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Such an adventure, comical, action-packed, and just a fun movie. Elisabeth Shue plays (Kris) the fun, sensible, and mature babysitter just trying to keep the kids alive in this action adventure while trying to pick up her friend. Each time, they run into strangers good and bad. I'm glad I bought it because it's a feel-good, adventure, comedy. Speaking of comical, is it just me or do the brother and sister and the friend Darrell remind you and look like Hermione Granger, Harry Potter w/o the glasses, and Ron Weasley from the books and movies. I noticed right away the looks, and the hair color I thought the resemblance was uncanny! Overall, the characters, story, and the different stars throughout the movie was great! What an adventure and the parents didn't even know! Love this 80's babysitting movie, let's face it babysitting is an adventure.
My wife and I enjoyed this movie so much that, with Best Buy's fantastic pricing, we could afford to buy a copy for my daughter and her family.
Who hasn't experienced both being under the care of a teenage baby sitter in your youth and then, as teenagers themselves, working as a baby sitter to earn some much appreciated spending money. It has always been a "right of passage" from adolescence to the teen years and is usually the only opportunity for a 'first job'.
However, this particular babysitting job suddenly becomes "An Adventure in Babysitting" when it slowly and continuously wends its way through hysterically funny and exciting twists and turns that will leave you laughing throughout all the unexpected situations and how each resolution brings on another more funnier and more challenging situation to overcome.
Fortunately, the events of this fictional movie never occurred in our experiences but are the result of a great storyline, great writing and best of all a great and believable cast, led by Elisabeth Shue. This movie is guaranteed to tickle your funny-bone and could easily bring you your most unforgettable and enjoyable movie experience.
