Bonus Material: Adventures In Babysitting (Full Movie)
"Nobody Leaves This Place Without Singin' The Blues!"
This post is really just a fluke, I was only planning on adding the two musical numbers from this movie (the opening sequence where Elisabeth Shue dances around lipsynching to Then He Kissed Me by The Crystals, and when they sing The Babysitting Blues) because it was one of my top 5 fave movies as a kid and still remains one of my top 20 fave movies as an adult. Then I came across the entire movie and I thought... Why The Hell Not?!?! I think you all deserve a treat.
Certainly I don't expect everyone to take 2 hours out of their day to sit and watch this on my blog, but for those of you who ever have some time to spare and are looking for a really funny classic movie from the 80's, it's here if you want it.
Fun Fact: One of my first guy crushes was on Anthony Rapp in this movie (he plays Daryl Coopersmith), who went on to appear in "Dazed and Confused" and originate the role of Mark in the Broadway musical "Rent" and later star in the film version. I thought he was insanely cute. It was a tie between him and Judd Nelson as John Bender in The Breakfast Club. Hmmm, memories!
Starring: Elisabeth Shue (Chris Parker), Penelope Ann Miller (Brenda), Anthony Rapp (Daryl), Keith Coogan (Brad), Maia Brewton (Sarah), and a young Vincent D'Onofrio as Thor.
