If isn't leading Oldman around by his dick, she's destroying his life and the people in it. Yes its not a cinematic high point, but it's entertaining and I'm a Oldman fan. Violence, many a steamy moment and Juiette Lewis doing a sexy dance is enough for me.

(gb) wrote: I was nervous revisiting this film that I absolutely adored growing up, because many of my childhood favorites don't age so well. But Adventures in Babysitting is so wonderful, and doesn't feel like it has aged at all. The story totally holds up, and I love pretty much every aspect of the film. Each little dangerous twist and turn that the plot takes adds to the fun, and the logic of why they end up in each place makes total sense. There are certainly some silly moments (like the scene in the blues club) but I just chalk that up as movie-logic utilized for a joke. This film was actually Chris Columbus' directorial debut, and he does a great job with it. One of the things that Columbus seems to be able to manage remarkably well are child actors. He almost always casts kids that are quality actors, and directs them so they will realize their full potential. Of course the cast entirely hinges on Elisabeth Shue, who is simply adorable in this movie. I had a pretty big crush on her back in the day, but seeing it as an adult I can still say her performance is superb. I particularly love the scenes where she starts to panic because of all the insanity going on around them, but simultaneously fights to maintain her role as babysitter watching over the kids. There's very little that I don't enjoy about Adventures in Babysitting, and as I said it holds up pretty well today, so I would highly recommend it.

It helps that Bride of Frankenstein is essentially a camp take on the first film, so the film only has to faithfully replicate the visual style and tone of the films and then nudge them just a bit more into the direction of comedy- a little police captain with an immovable fake arm here, a little Doctor and Monster "Putting on the Ritz" there.
