Critic Reviews for The Babysitter
Not only as a star vehicle [for Alicia Silverstone] but also as an impressive debut for Guy Ferland, its writer and director.
It does get at something dark and wormy in American masculinity.
Bad horror almost saved due to Silverstone's 'hotness' factor.
Audience Reviews for The Babysitter
My original rating of 3 holds. I first saw this a few years after its release in the 90's, and now again in 2017. It's funny how I relate now to Dolly, the older woman, but when I first saw it, I related to the babysitter. (Despite being nothing like either of them). This is actually borderline disturbing, as the babysitter is a flat character whose name we don't even discover until the final scene (Jennifer, in case you're interested). She has little to do but be a pretty girl. The real story is of those interacting with her. Her ex boyfriend, current boyfriend, the parents of the children she is babysitting on the evening this movie takes place across. Through them you see little scenes based on what they are reflecting in Jennifer. Jealousy, in Dolly's case, as she feels old and unattractive and her husband clearly has eyes for the young babysitter. Even the young boy she babysits has secret thoughts and fantasies. Some of the thoughts are violent and make for uneasy viewing. This is an interesting idea, not sure about the execution and Alicia is kind of wasted as this could have been any pretty teen.
What the hell was Alica Silverstone thinking ?
