If you haven't seen this movie at all or even recently, make plans to do so!

It's a great mix of humor and adventure against the backdrop of downtown Chicago, what could be better?

One of the best movies of 1987, even though the only throne in the movie is using a homophobic slur being repeated many times. Otherwise, it's an excellent movie. Elisabeth Shue is quite charming as a babysitter who must babysit three kids and at the sam times they go on adventure to go pick up her friend in downtown Chicago. Shue is fun to watch and the kids aren't bad either.
