A must-have for Phoebe fans
2 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a TV movie, Baby Sister is just slightly above your run-of-the-mill. Simple plot, but interesting and entertaining nonetheless. The acting is competent, not cheesy as you come to expect from 70s-80s TV fare. And good dramatic snippets throughout, it never felt boring.

But who's kidding who, the reason to watch old productions with Phoebe Cates in them is to... well, see Phoebe Cates do her thing. And she never looked better. Tall and slim and 19, with her engagingly expressive face. If you loved her before, you'll love her twice as much after watching this.

Ridgemont was great and Gremlins was charming, but this is the one the Phoebe fan will keep at the center of their collection.
