ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING
1987, Disney Pictures, 102 min, United States, Dir: Chris Columbus

When Chris Parker’s (Elisabeth Shue) boyfriend cancels their romantic dinner date at the last minute, she reluctantly agrees to a babysitting job. What starts off as a boring night quickly changes when Chris receives a frantic phone call from best friend Brenda (Penelope Ann Miller), who is stranded at a bus station in downtown Chicago. Chris agrees to pick up Brenda but has to bring the kids along with her. Their rescue mission quickly goes off the rails as a flat tire on the freeway sends them spinning into a night of chaos filled with one-handed homicidal tow truck drivers, a car theft ring, a blues bar with one sacred rule and the almighty Thor. Chris now must survive the night and gets the kids home safely before their parents return home.


DON’T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER’S DEAD
1991, 102 min, United States, Dir: Stephen Herek

“Dishes are done, man!” Sue Ellen (Christina Applegate) and her siblings (including ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING’s Keith Coogan and HALLOWEEN 4’s Danielle Harris) are left with a particularly nasty babysitter when their mother goes to Austria for the summer. By divine intervention, the babysitter dies, leaving the kids free to enjoy their summer as they please - until they realize that all the money their mom left for them went with the now-deceased babysitter to the mortuary. Forced to support her family and save the summer, Sue Ellen lands a dream job at a fashion company by using a fictitious résumé. Now she must keep up the charade so no one at the company finds out who she really is and for that matter, that the babysitter is dead.
