Adventures In Babysitting
Chris Parker (Elisabeth Shue, THE KARATE KID, CALL TO GLORY) agrees to babysit after her "dream" 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!

Plot Synopsis:

After her boyfriend cancels a date, 17-year-old Chris agrees to babysit for 15-year-old Brad and his younger sister, Sara. When she gets a call from her best friend who's at the bus stop in downtown Chicago deciding not to run away, Chris packs the kids in the family car to go fetch her. En route, they run into every imaginable hitch, including having to sing the blues to escape a neighborhood club, accidentally stealing vital financial information from the mob, and witnessing a tow-truck driver's wife's infidelities.
