I was today years old when I found out one of my favorite movies: Adventures in Babysitting (1987) has a remake & it was also the 100th Disney Channel Original Movie (DCOM).
So I'll be watching the original Adventures in Babysitting before I watch the remake some other time. I'm no doubt gonna find problems bc y'know...1980s and all
Chris dancing & lip syncing to The Crystals', "And then he kissed me" is a mood!
All this to get ready for her way too cool for school, 1980s jerk boyfriend to pick her up. At least she's having fun!
Holy crap! Bradley Whitford is said 1980s jerk boyfriend 😮 I hadn't realized before.
Mike's all: "Girls like you come along once in a lifetime"

Chris don't fall for that crap!!!
Not even a kiss goodbye bc his little sister's sick. Yeah but what's that gotta do with a goodbye kiss? Puh-lease!!
Ooh Chris's friend Brenda was OG Barb!! Was Barb based on Brenda?🤔
Brenda's like: Chris he's lying. Which sounds like this to Chris:

CHrIs hE'S LyINg

Chris is clearly head over heels into Mike's too tight designer Jeans
CHRIS: Listen to Brenda!!! Speaking of Brenda...look at her glasses!! Love em!
Chris wants to spend her night being depressed her BIG, life changing date at a French restaurant was cancelled.
The Anderson's called. They need a sitter but Chris is all, "I'm too old to babysit"
Girl, WHAT??? Your privilege is definitely showing you out here turnin' down an opportunity to earn extra coins???? Pfft
Of course there's a Brad in this. There's a Brad in all the 80s movies!
Clearisal was brown??
Sara: "Thor's my hero!"
Ikr, Sara? I agree.

Fun fact: the first time I saw Adventures in Babysitting (1987) was the first time I'd ever heard of Thor. It's safe to say it was some time in the 90s. Sara Anderson was the first Thor stan I'd seen.
This movie is just under 90 minutes but the way my brain is set up...this thread is probably gonna be like 2 hours, maybe a little less 😂
Remember when TV/movie moms looked like this?
Anyhoo, Brad was mindin' his face, looking for Clearisal until his sister, Sara tells em she used it for a brown crayon whilst coloring Thor. What brown though?
Also, Brad clearly needed that Clearisal to cover his zits to impress Chris. 😑
This whole thing is so short notice. Suppose Chris couldn't babysit? What then, Andersons?
Clear 80s fashion defected. Might be vintage chic now idk.
Uh first problem: Brad used a homophobic slur describing Thor 🤦🏾‍♀️ I knew I'd find problems. 80s and all
The heartbroken look on Sara's face when Brad said that I felt pained. Ha, her pushing em down the stairs I guess is justice? I don't condone violence tho.
Brad: "Your eyes ..."
Chris: "What about them?"
Brad: "They're so well placed"
"Chocolate will give you zits"
It's the best friend, Daryl who I'm now thinking is Michael Cera before Michael Cera...super bad 😑🤦🏾‍♀️
He's gotta Playboy 🤦🏾‍♀️ same as Michael Cera in Superbad. Was Evan inspired by Daryl???
Sara to Chris: "Are you going to college?"
Chris: "No."
Brad: "Thank God"

Just gonna keep digging that ditch arentcha buddy?🤦🏾‍♀️
Chris: "Where are you?"
Brenda: "The bus station. I ran away from home"
Chris: "Don't go anywhere"
Brenda: "I can't. I spent all the money on the cab ride to get here"

If you're running away maybe it's a good idea to have a plan 😉
Meanwhile Brenda's in this guy's house!
Just in time for #AvengersEndgame #Endgame
Sara's such a Thor stan!! Loving it!!
Dude keeps his hand in the glove compartment? 😑 Oh, no, it's a gun mkay
So the first Black person is a car thief? Mkay. At least Joe got a code right?🤦🏾‍♀️
You can see the differences in eye-care here. Brenda's asleep in a bus station, took her glasses off meanwhile a women next to her tries em on to find she can finally SEE 😑 Brenda's glasses cute tho
This is Brenda without her glasses #AdventuresInBabysitting
Joe watching all of em escape was too stressful
Who writes important notes in a Playboy? Quick notes maybe but whole details??🤦🏾‍♀️
Nobody leaves this place without singing the blues #AdventuresInBabysitting
Chris got the babysitting blues #AdventuresInBabysitting
Welp Brad shot his shot. Hit & a miss there buddy
Poor Brenda without her glasses picked up a sewer rat thinking it was a kitty 😑 ooh girl in a bus station? Really?
Dance off? Sing off? Oh wait, they got knives!!!😑 #AdventuresInBabysitting
Hot dog guy: Cash only. No checks

Brenda: It's a perfectly good check.

Hot dog guy: You slip me the cash. I'll slip you the weener

Brenda: But I don't have any cash

Hot dog guy: Then I don't have a weener
Tee hee hee he said no weener 😂 I know. I'm a child. Next!!!
So they're at a Kappa party, guy finds out she's a senior in high school and still flirts with her...the cops are clearly in ALL the wrong place throughout this movie 🙃
Big dumb beau hunk? 🤔🙃
Sounds like a backhanded compliment to me. Idk
Kappa guy gave them $45 for their tires! What a miracle Sara had to pee or they'd have never had enough for their car
It's Thor!! Sara pledges her allegiance to who she believed to be Thor.
This is the part where Thor would've said mine's bigger than yours #AdventuresInBabysitting
Again, I'm a child. Tee hee hee 😂
It's the return of her jerk boyfriend! He took someone else on their date, using the same line: "girls like you come along once in a lifetime"

Dude what??!!! He ain't 💩
Now he's gaslighting her? 🤦🏾‍♀️
That was a perfectly good donut and she threw it on the ground 😭 was that necessary? #AdventuresInBabysitting
Probably the most stressful scene of Adventures in Babysitting (1987)
Will Sara fall? Trip? Will glass break? Will the bad guy chasing her grab her? Let her fall? Is Sara gonna be okay???

Just some of the questions in my head while the scene played out
Brenda got her nerve! "What took y'all so long?"

Girl, please! Be grateful Chris came to pick you up at all
Y'know that trope where guys find the girl without being given their address but it's supposed to be romantic? Well 1. IT'S NOT 😭 2. It didn't happen here bc Kappa guy found Sara's missing skate that happened to have her address so he drove ALL the way across town to return it
Still creepy bc he's a grown man who's clearly into Chris which would be fine if Chris wasn't a 17 year old girl in HIGH SCHOOL
What??? They're kissing while "And then he kissed me" is playing?? Noooooo 😭😭😭😭
I really enjoyed this movie but NO! He's a grown MAN. She's a teenage GIRL. NOT okay!
It was just a simple babysitting gig GONE HORRIBLY WRONG
