Adventures in Babysitting



Chris Parker (Elisabeth Shue) agrees to babysit after her "dream" date stands her up. Expecting a dull evening, Chris settles down with three kids for a night of TV ... and boredom. But when her frantic friend Brenda calls and pleads to be rescued from the bus station in downtown Chicago, the evening soon explodes into an endless whirl of hair-raising adventures! Babysitter and kids leave their safe suburban surroundings and head for the heart of the big city, never imagining how terrifyingly funny their expedition will become.

Way before she grabbed an Oscar nomination for her searing performance as a world-weary prostitute in Leaving Las Vegas, Elisabeth Shue was known as one of the squeaky-clean actresses of the '80s. Having made a splash in The Karate Kid and the '60s-nostalgia TV series Call to Glory, Shue cemented her good-girl reputation with the charming but badly titled Adventures in Babysitting. Set in the John Hughes-style suburbs of Chicago, the titular adventures follow babysitter Chris (Shue), who agrees to watch the Anderson kids (Keith Coogan and Maia Brewton) when her boyfriend cancels their anniversary date. All is quiet on the home front until Chris is called upon to rescue her best friend (Penelope Ann Miller, also doing good-girl duty) from the seedy downtown bus station. She can't leave the kids, and she can't leave her friend alone in the big bad city, so she packs everyone in the station wagon and heads into Chicago. Screwball craziness begins as they encounter car thieves, knife-wielding gangs, gun-toting truck drivers, and, worst of all, Chris's duplicitous boyfriend. It's hardly mature entertainment, but Shue makes it work; when she wins over the audience at a blues club with her improv singing, you'll be won over, too. In his directorial debut, Chris Columbus (who later went on to helm the sap-fests Mrs. Doubtfire and Home Alone) gently skewers the suburbia white-bread mindset of the main characters, and plays up the comedy over the schmaltz with a subtlety of which he now seems incapable; the near romance between Shue and Coogan is played lightly and adorably. Look for brief appearances by art-house faves Lolita Davidovich as a college party girl and Vincent D'Onofrio as an unlikely savior. --Mark Englehart

Spent the day in the sun with friends and some film cameras. Baby A snuggled right into Kayla, my 15 year old wunderkid of a babysitter, for three hours of traipsing through Ottawa. He slept the whole time, bunny ears and all:).

Took this with my supersampler, but did not try out my Diana yet - tomorrow:)).

Thanks Ian for a great idea and for the 120 film. There are some awesome shots already posted by Nat from today. Film is fun:).

The vendors sit on the ground here (both Laotians and Thais seem super human flexible in this way) with their goods spread out.

When you buy something, they take your money and slap it on every item they have for sale and chant, "Lucky lucky lucky." The people of Luang Prabang are very interested in luck.

Recorded for NPR:

Tired of the loneliness of major airports, while traveling, I decided to actually try talking to somebody. At first, I thought my pick, an elderly, dignified black woman, was confused because she kept repeating herself--"They don't believe in spanking and he's a bad grandbaby." "Time out?" I asked. Instantly she recognized the term and began repeating that too.
