Monday night I was reminded of one of my favourite movies as a kid. It was modernized and updated for today’s youth but there were just enough subtle reminders of the original movie throughout to help us ‘oldies’ still feel the nostalgic. In case you missed it I’m talking about the 80’s classic Adventures In Babysitting.
Available on DVD on June 28th
“Adventures in Babysitting,” inspired by the hugely popular 1980s film of the same name, is an upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie starring Sabrina Carpenter (of Disney Channel’s hit comedy series “Girl Meets World”) and Sofia Carson (of the hit Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants”). In “Adventures in Babysitting,” a dull evening for two competing babysitters, Jenny (Sabrina Carpenter) and Lola (Sofia Carson), turns into an adventure in the big city as they hunt for one of the kids who somehow snuck away.
So what did we think:
K (11 – girl) – “I really liked it because it was funny and it had a lot of “Oh no! What’s going to happen next” moments, I also liked the ending and now I want to see the original movie!
L (9 – boy) – “I liked it because it was funny and I’d kind of like to see the original movie.”
Me – I thought the movie was really well done and it had enough different elements from the original that most adults shouldn’t be bothered. It was a great family night movie that we really enjoyed.
So, have you seen it? What did you think?
