Disney Managed To Remake ‘Adventures In Babysitting’ And No One Noticed
Look, you can call me a nostalgia whore all you want but damn it this must be said, Disney you fucked up my childhood! That’s right I said it. Turns out that the mouse is sneakier than we all thought. So sneaky in fact, he managed to take a popular 80’s cult classic and has remade it into a cheesy, sappy, corny, Disney channel original movie without any fucking body noticing. Confused? Let me explain, you see Disney apparently bought the rights to the 1987 film (and personal favorite of mine growing up) ‘Adventures In Babysitting’. Turns out Disney not only bought the rights without anyone noticing but they also made a remake without anyone noticing. Now, granted, we sort of had a remake already with that Jonah Hill shit show called ‘The Sitter’ back in 2011. That film was a very hard R and for no real reason other than the “shock value” of hearing a little kid say the word “fuck”. It was too much and lacked sweetness of the original. This time around though we have a hard G, which means any edge that was in that original film will be gone. Watching the trailer was very hard for me, Elizabeth Shue has been replaced by not one but two of Disney’s tween stars who look like they should have a fucking babysitter themselves. They’re a little nods to the original but they’re drowned out by all the crappy, sentimental shit Disney throws in all their original movies. Heres the synopsis for this train wreck of a remake:
In Adventures in Babysitting, a dull evening for two competing babysitters, Jenny (Sabrina Carpenter) and Lola (Sofia Carson), turns into an adventure in the big city as they hunt for one of the kids who somehow snuck away. Written by Tiffany Paulsen (“Nancy Drew), it will be directed by John Schultz (Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer, Like Mike) and executive-produced by Michelle Manning (Teen Beach 2, The Breakfast Club).
