YMMV / Adventures in Babysitting

  • Critical Research Failure: The writers are somehow under the impression that there's something special about Thor's helmet. As in Marvel Comics Thor. In the comics themselves, the only thing special about Thor's helmet is...he wears it.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: A gravelly-voiced Albert Collins issues the decree of "Nobody leaves this stage without singin' the Blues." And thus, we demonstrate that Elisabeth Shue has surprisingly good pipes.
    • The Rolling Stones. "Gimme Shelter". What else can you ask for? note 
  • Ear Worm: Percy Sledge's "Just Can't Stop."
    • "And Then He Kissed Me" could be this as well, having to hear it at the beginning and end of the film.
    • And let us not forget "Baby Sittin Blues" ...baby baby!
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • The first PG-13 film released by Disney, in 1987, has Marvel's Thor as a plot point. Flash forward 22 years, when Disney buys Marvel.
      • And what do they do in their second Thor movie? Give this film's skyscraper-scene a Shout-Out!
    • For bonus points, Vincent D'Onofrio is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not as Thor, but as the Kingpin.
    • Also, the whole joke is that Thor was an obscure character who only major comics nerds would care about.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Admit it, wouldn't it have been fun to see how the gangsters could have done to sing the blues to get out of that club to continue the chase?
  • Values Dissonance: The use of "homo" as an insult was considered less offensive at the time when the movie came out.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: The film was shown on Disney Channel one time.
