Babysitter, The (1969)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Fairly crazy drive-in flick has the future D.A. (George E. Carey) about to take on an important case of a biker killing a woman. He's having trouble at home with his unloving wife (Anne Bellamy) but soon finds comfort with his underage babysitter Candy (Patricia Wymer). The biker's girlfriend plans on blackmailing the D.A. because his daughter is a lesbian but she gets better stuff when she realizes the babysitter is doing more than just watching kids. This thing packs a lot of "story" into its short 75-minute running time but that's okay because it makes for one wild ride as far as "B" drive-in films go. This is certainly one of those "groovy" movies aimed at teenagers at drive-ins and on that level the film works because it's not a great piece of art yet it does keep you entertained with its nudity, silly story and insane dialogue, which includes plenty of "peace of love" hippie talk. The greatest line is when the elder D.A. says everyone would benefit from "a little hippie in them". Another great line is when the D.A., taking the babysitter out, says that he respects teens because of their willingness to try new things like tacos!!! Yes, tacos were apparently a way to show freedom. Wymer does a very good job in her role as the young babysitter who wants to experience life as well as teach an older man how to life. She's certainly cute enough for the role but she also has enough charm to make you understand how the old man would get caught up with her. She also comes off appearing to have a brain in her head, which also helps make her character more believable. Stone, who wrote the story for himself; imagine that, is pretty flat in his role, which doesn't demand too much except getting turned on by a teenager. He's pretty weak in the role, which doesn't help the film any. You really can't go into a film like this expecting anything great so the main goal should be to keep the viewer entertained and this film is successful at that. The nudity, silly rock music and wild story make for some decent fun as long as you know what you're getting into.
