(1995) from Tuna
| The Babysitter is about the obsession of two
teenagers, and a grown man, with babysitter Alicia Silverstone. She is
sitting for a couple bound for a party. Both the man and woman drink
too much and weigh too much. Silverstone's boyfriend and a school
acquaintance, who happens to be the son of the couple giving the
party, try to plot a way to get in her pants. Also, one of the kids
she is sitting, about 9 or 10, wants to see her naked. Most of the
film involves these 4 males fantasizing about her, mostly in the tub.
Through all of this fantasizing, Silverstone stays covered.
We do have some brief breast exposure from Tuesday Knight as a
waitress that one of the guys has had sex with.
When the film isn't confusing us with fantasies, it is repulsing us
with such delights as a kid puking all over the side of a Porshe, the
father passing out in his car, and the mother making a drunken play
for her host at the party.
Rumor has it that Silverstone
turned the part down several times, until they removed her nude scenes
from the script, thus deleting the only possible thing of merit in
guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of
excellence, about like three and a half stars
from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this description, this
film is a D.
