Trivia

Second DCOM to be a remake of another movie, being Adventures in Babysitting (1987). The first was the DCOM Freaky Friday (1995), which was a remake of Freaky Friday (1976) and was remade later as Freaky Friday (2003). See more »

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.

One night, two babysitters, five kids and various adventures!
24 June 2016 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews

Now its Maya's (Sabrina Carpenter) turn after Riley's (Rowan Blanchard) 'Invisible Sister'. I'm referring the two best friends from 'Girl Meets World'. This film saw a delayed release and initially it was said to be a sequel to the 80s film of the same name, but now it stated as an official remake. The basic theme was retained and the rest was modified to the present trend. They aimed for G and/or PG, not anything above that, so they had to give up those risky stuffs from the original, hence became a simple one night adventure.

The 100th film under the Disney channel's belt. I neither liked nor disliked it. It's a mixed feeling to me, but if you had loved the original film, which was for all ages, most certainly you won't enjoy this. This film is for those who had not seen the old version and it specially targeted for the little kids and tween audience. The main issue was the film characters doubled with the two babysitters and their two sets of children to be taken care, which means the adventures drastically shrunk.

There's no innovation and those altered scenes didn't do anything to lift the spirit of the narration. Especially the rap song was a disappointment compared to the 'Babysitting Blues' and also weak negative characters let the film down. But the display from the cast was amazing, if only they had refined story upto 60-70% new ideas, it had a good chance to impress the viewers. Overall, as a television film it did fared decently, but only when compared with the original, it goes stumbling.

5/10
