A teenage girl babysits two young kids while the parents go out to a party. Her boyfriend is coerced (with the help of alcohol) by an old 'friend' into going to the house. Both boys are obsessed with the babysitter, as is the father of the two children. The story basically shows the effects drink has on different people.Written by
The name of Alicia Silverstone's character is not revealed until 84 minutes into the movie. She is mostly just referred to as "the babysitter." During the final moments of the film, seconds before she is pulled away in the back of a police car, her name, Jennifer, is disclosed. See more »
When the babysitter is putting the baby in the crib, as she first stands there holding it, you can clearly see by the stiff limbs that it is a doll. The next cut, with the camera looking in past her shoulder, does show a real baby. See more »
Alicia Silverstone is so pretty, so good, I hope she gets some decent material someday. This film wasn't very good. Miss Silverstone was good, but the film could have really used some more exposure (wink, nod). At least she did spend a fair part of the movie in a bubble bath, but she seemed to have a flesh-colored towel in there when she was moving very much. I will have to give some credit to J. T. Walsh and Lee Garlington as the Tuckers. It was fairly fun to watch them get more and more hammered at the party. I've heard that drunkenness is difficult for an actor, but these two made it quite believable. Overall, this film is of interest only to Silverstone fans, (real ones, because she does NO nude scenes here) Grade: D
