The Top 80 movies from the 1980's in 80 Days (DAY 18):

63. “Adventures in Babysitting” (1987)

Movie Summary:

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! Written by Anonymous

Chris has a big night out planned when her boyfriend cancels on her. She agrees to babysit for a preteen girl and a pubescent boy. She's settled in for a dull night when a girlfriend calls her to say she's marooned at a downtown bus station with very seedy characters around. The three plus one of the boy's friends get into the parents' station wagon for a trip to the inner city. All is well until the flat tire. Written by John Vogel
