The Baby-Sitters Club is a 1995 film based on the hit children's book series The Baby-Sitters Club.

The film stars seven tweenage girls in a small American town. The girls run a babysitting business where the babysit younger children. The main plot revolves around the leader, Kristy, deciding to create a day-camp for the summer.

This film provides examples of:

  • The Film of the Book: The film is a general adaptation of the Baby-Sitters Club books. It's not based on one specific book.

  • 555: The phone numbers begin with 555.
  • In Medias Res: The film starts several books in. Dawn and Mary Anne are already step-sisters and Mary Anne had her haircut already.
  • Most Writers Are Adults: True to the books, most of the 12-13 year old girls act more like 15-17 year olds.
  • Sand In My Eyes: Kristy protests to her mother that she's not crying— she's got allergies.
  • Visit by Divorced Dad: The movie has Kristy's Disappeared Dad visit for the summer. He only reveals himself to his thirteen-year-old daughter (ignoring his fifteen-, seventeen-, and seven-year-old sons), forcing her to keep it secret and basically lie to her family and friends all summer, before he leaves unexpectedly because his job prospect didn't pan out.

How well does it match the trope?
