Goofs

When everyone is looking at Lola's photos in the closing scene, the final pic is of Trey washing Lady Marmalade being viewed by a shocked Helen Anderson. Lola gave her camera to the security guard at the concert, so she would not have been able to take that picture, nor would it have been on the memory card she was transferring the pictures from.

Katy Cooper: You know a professional manicure could do your hands wonders.
Lola Perez: How old are you?
Katy Cooper: Seven.
Lola Perez: [bragging] You wanna know what I was doing with my hands when I was seven?
Jenny Parker: [interrupting] No, and she doesn't want to!

Not as fun as they intend to be

A typical remake nobody asked for, but in this case doubled up, because in order to make it different, we don't have one babysitter but two of them. But that doesn't mean the movie was going to be twice as funny, actually this version is half as funny as the 1987's Chris Columbus release (no wonder the original one has 77% in Rotten Tomatoes), but even letting aside the original, this is not as watchable as other Disney movies like Descendants or Cloud Nine. But the most awkward thing Disney did to promote this movie was to take poor Sofia Carson and make her wear an impressive one piece swimsuit showing the best legs in Disney Channel's history, when there was absolutely no reason for that. Let's face it: that's the only one good reason to watch this movie. But when Disney tried to recreate one of the highlights of the 1987's version, only achieved to stage the most shameful rap performance ever seen on TV ("We're not quitters / we're the babysitters"). For these reasons, I don't think this remake should have a positive review. But I would like to see more from Sofia in the future, maybe not in Disney but, you know, if have it show it.
