Since the ratings were pretty decent and since it was Chris Columbus’ directing debut, I was quite eager to check this flick. Furthermore, the title sounded pretty neat as well. Unfortunately, I thought the whole thing was rather disappointing. Indeed, in my opinion, the concept was actually really similar to ‘Home Alone’ which would be also directed by Columbus 3 years later and would turn ... read more

Chris Parker agrees to babysit after her "dread" 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!

"Re-watch - May 5th I haven't watched this movie since high school, but I watched it several times back when it was on cable all the time. It's still my favorite Thor movie, though it blew my mind to find it was Vincent D'Onofrio who played the Thor-like character. Even when I saw his name in the credits I couldn't believe it was him. Anyway, the movie is still entertaining and fun, so I'll probably sit through it again down the road at some point. Currently streaming on Netflix"
