We all know the "Adventures in Babysitting" cover art, but do you really know what this 1987 comedy is all about?
It's Elizabeth Shue at her feel-good-movie best. It's also the major motion picture version of an afterschool special about the dangers of the city. It might even be an attempt to lampoon the fears of '80s suburbanites.
Putting Christopher Columbus' box office debut under the Shat microscope reveals a lot of things: like a horribly miscast Vincent D'Onofrio, a hidden hero, and the fact Big D no longer likes fun.
This anniversary gift of a Shat The Movies episode takes us back to a simpler time when Playboy magazines were the center of young boys' world, girls pretended their hairbrushes were microphones, Thor didn't need big muscles, parents partied in skyscrapers with open windows, and blue clubs catered to teens who couldn't dance.
