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: 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!

There's only one Adventures in Babysitting....
12 April 2018 | by MinistryofDoomSee all my reviews

....and this is not it. Where have all the Hollywood writers gone? Is everything now just a remake? Are studios just lazily taking short-cuts to profit earnings? I don't know who decided that one of the most quintessential 80s movies needed a remake for the pre/early-teen Disney generation. Somethings should not be touched. Elizabeth Shue's version of Adventures in Babysitting is absolutely one of those things. The writers took the script of the 1987 version and tweaked it jusssst enough so that kids today could find enjoyment and in doing so, they created a poorly acted cheap thrills forgettable TV movie that fails to capitalize on the legendary status of it's namesake. For what it's worth, I'm a parent and I watched the original version.....and this version......with my kids. They enjoyed the original version more than this one (bonus points for the Thor lookalike). There's no reason anyone should have ever made this film and there's no reason you should ever feel the need to waste an hour or so watching this version as long as the original version still exists.
