This is a great movie for the pre-teen or anyone who enjoys the baby sitters club books. It is just plain fun.

What's up with the casting??

"Being a BSC fan, I saw this movie right when it came out, and I also have a copy of it at home. It's a great film with a good storyline, but I can't help wondering what was wrong with the casting. Let's start with the leader Kristy Thomas. There's nothing wrong with Schuyler Fisk's acting, but she simply couldn't carry out the bossy, assertive, character that Kristy had. In this movie she's whiny, wimpy and totally takes a back seat--all the qualities that the character certainly should not have had. The other six girls were decent, but if you want to see these books come to life, stick with the videos that came out in the early 90's. Those girls knew how to carry out these roles--the movie is weakened by the poor acting and the changed personalities of the leading girls. It is a sweet story and has a fine message--very much in the Baby Sitters Club tradition--but the video series is 100 times better. BSC fans might be disappointed with this movie."
Watching this movie brought back a lot of memories!

"I was a huge fan of the Baby-Sitters Club book series when I was younger, but I'd never seen the BSC movie before...UNTIL TODAY! Comcast was featuring the movie on On Demand, and I watched the entire thing. I absolutely loved it! Yes, there are some things that are different from the book, but overall I think the film did a great job of maintaining the integrity of the series. The casting was perfect: the seven BSC members were all great and remained very true to their characters. The story was good and I think this is a movie that parents will enjoy watching with their kids. I'm sure that kids will enjoy this movie even if they haven't read the BSC books, and maybe the film will even inspire them to seek out the books on their own. (As good as this movie is, nothing beats Ann M. Martin's paperback classics!) Perhaps the people who will enjoy this film most of all are people like me: women in their late 20s who grew up reading the BSC books. It was delightful to sit back, watch this movie, and rehash all those great memories.
Long live the BSC!"

"This is a true-to-the-books movie. I really enjoyed this movie and gave it 4 stars because it was PG. I think that it should have been G for the younger kids who read these books.In here the BSC is running a summer camp and run into alot of trouble. Kristy's dad comes back, Claudia is failing science and might have to drop out of the club, Stacey is in luv with a 17 year old, Mary Anne is forced to keep Kristy's dad a secret with Kristy, Dawn has to deal with a cranky neighbor who wants the camp to go away, Mallory and Jessi just trying to keep up with everything. What will happen? Find out in this must watch for BSC fans! I"
