okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay...I know...
10 March 2002 | by Jusenkyo_no_PikachuSee all my reviews

Okay, so maybe I am a 17-year-old guy now. That never stopped me from Liking The Baby-sitters Club and I only stopped reading the books because my mother didn't want me to.

I still haven't popped out of the phase, and I occasionally go back to read the books.

When I saw the movie appear, I wanted to go accompany a friend to see it (she was only 7).

Anyhow, I missed my chance there and didn't get to see the film until it appeared on Showtime down here (a year after it was released on video).

I still found it appealing. Mainly thanks to the park bench scene between Stacey, Luka and Rosie (I always thought Stacey was Charlotte Johanssen's favourite...)

Basically the Club of the title is holding a playgroup (I now scare you by saying it sounds like book #7) except there is a perturbed neighbour who threatens the club, and Kristy's father demands that she spends more time with him while letting nobody else know of his existence in Stoneybrook.

On top of that, Claudia has summer school, Mary Anne is the only person to know the truth about Kristy and Alan Gray (stupid jerky dweeb extraordinaire) is trying to date Dawn using tips from Logan. And diabetic Anastasia Elizabeth McGill is in love with a guy four years her senior.

That's pretty much the books done for you
