Okay, I have to take a deep breath. Give me a minute…
Okay. So, Disney are making a straight-to-cable sequel to one of my most beloved movies of all-time: Adventures In Babysitting. I reviewed Adventures In Babysitting (also known in some countries as A Night On The Town) HERE as part of my CPD Classics series where I used to review my very favorite films. My sad 80’s dorkiness is on full display in that review (and my obvious girl crush on Elisabeth Shue at the time). I don’t care – I’m not ashamed. It’s a great movie and really deserved way more recognition than it got.
I read about the sequel in this article here: moviefone. It’ll be called Further Adventures In Babysitting and will star Disney Channel actresses Sabrina Carpenter & Sofia Carson (before they move on to twerking and Spring Breakers 2 if previous Disney Channel stars are anything to go by). 😉 Speaking of that, the article mentions that Miley *barf* Cyrus (I just threw up in my mouth) was once attached to the project so thank god for small favors, I guess – that may have pushed me over the edge. I’m trying not to lose my head!
No. Just…. No. This will be SO bad. It’ll be so tame and “Disneyfied”. Adventures In Babysitting was sort of a “family film” but it was aimed more at teens & pre-teens with some slightly saucy scenes & naughty language. It had some balls and was actually funny.
Well, if anything, it gives me a chance to mention the original again to anyone who’s never seen it. I highly recommend Adventures In Babysitting, especially to anyone who is fond of the 80s. 🙂
