"Adventures in Babysitting," inspired by the hugely popular 1980s film of the same name, is an upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie starring Sabrina Carpenter (of Disney Channel's hit comedy series "Girl Meets World") and Sofia Carson (of the hit Disney Channel Original Movie "Descendants"). 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.
As a child of the 80's, Adventures in Babysitting was one of my all time favorite movies. So when I heard that Disney Channel was making an original movie inspired my childhood favorite... I was excited! This was going to be a great opportunity to see a fun new movie and share it with my seven year old daughter... who just happens to be a huge Girl Meets World and Descendants fan.
We sat down one night with popcorn and this movie for a fun girls night in. I loved how the new movie mirrored some of my favorite parts of the 80's hit. For example: the amazing clip above of the Babysitter's Rap that just brought me back to Chris Parker's fabulous rendition of Babysitting Blues, the towing company sporting the same name, and more! Jenny and Lola kept us engaged throughout this crazy adventure. While the girls are very different, they have one thing in common - they need to find the kid and get all of the kids back home! But it's not as easy as it sounds. And quickly enough they realize that working together is their only hope.
This was a very fun movie night for me and my daughter. We laughed a lot, and my daughter has been asking to see it again! I would say that's a big win for the Disney Channel!
