More Info IMDb

Keith Coogan, who starred as Brad in ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING, is coming to the Alamo Drafthouse for a live Q&A after the screening!

To be honest with you, I think I learned more vital life lessons from ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING than I did from three years of junior high school.

What's the best song to listen to while preparing for a hot date? "And Then He Kissed Me." Should I accept help from a trucker with a claw hand? Absolutely! Is it a good idea to date guys with a license plate that reads "So Cool"? Definitely not. Should I ever venture into a Chicago bus station? HELL NO. Is it creepy for a college guy to hit on a high school girl? Not in a movie! And the greatest lesson of all? Say it with me now: Don't f*ck with the babysitter!!!

Seriously, you have no idea how much this film raised my expectations of babysitting. Chris Parker gets to sing at a blues club, fight off a gang AND meet a hot car thief (does anyone else wish she'd ended up with Joe?). Meanwhile the craziest thing that happened to me while watching kids was The Case Of The Missing 101 Dalmations DVD.

So if you need a refresher on important life lessons, or if you're just craving some adventure, I hope you'll join me for this special edition of Girlie Night with Keith Coogan live! We'll cheer for Brad when he takes a knife in the foot, drool over Thor (Vincent D'Onfrio what?!!) and pump our fists when Daryl kicks Mike McDouchebag straight into a table. SO COOL! (Sarah Pitre)
