Movie Reviews

Mediocre adaptation of a great short story
Scott Richardson | Chicago, IL USA | 04/05/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Robert Coover's 1969 short story "The Babysitter" (included in his ground-breaking collection "Pricksongs and Descants") is a masterpiece of postmodern short fiction. The beauty of the story was its ambiguity and the way truth and fantasy seamlessly blended into each other until the reader is left completely unable to discern between reality and fantasy.While this film adaptation blends the characters' fantasies with reality, it ultimately settles on a solid reality for its ending.The other problem that many viewers may have is that there really isn't a whole lot that happens in the film, and while this is directly from the story, it doesn't make for much of a cinematic experience.Ultimately, this is probably for two groups of people: hardcore Alicia Silverstone fans (her performance in the film is decent) and hardcore Robert Coover fans (there have to be some others out there). Other than that, this film doesn't have much to offer."
A pretty good movie, if you want to see Alicia
Brandon Crawley | Pelham, AL | 08/30/1999

"This movies not to bad if you have nothing else to watch and you like Alicia Silverstone. The plot is not good, and the acting is worse. The only bright spot in the movie is Alicia. But that's just my opinion. You can see the movie and form your own."
Okay Story Ruined By Poor Plot Development
Sebastian Sanjurjo | Miami FL | 01/08/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Every movie has it's strengths and its weaknesses, whether it be the plot, special effects etc. in this film we have a semi- interesting plot about a young babysitter named Jennifer (played by Alicia Silverstone) she begins her day by going to school and of course end's it by babysitting at night. That is pretty much the initial plot; the rest is bunch of fantasies from different men who want to be with her. As mentioned earlier every movie has its strength and weakens and in this case it's weakness is plot development. The story never really reaches its point it just simply jumps from a scenario in which Jennifer is babysitting and answering calls to ludicrous dream world where her seductive look captivates them. Sure enough the movie does have some good moments such as the baby sitter's boyfriend being convinced by a wrong source that she is cheating on him. This of course leads him to investigate and stock our fellow protagonist "the babysitter". But ultimately the good moments are once again ruined by the painfully boring and simply stupid fantasy scenes. i only recommend it if you're a fan of Alicia Silverstone's work other than that pass it.

Rather good

"It's not her best movie, but it's ok I think. I must say I found the plot a bit screwed - but Alicia's so wonderfull that she alone makes it worth watching. END"
