I was a huge fan of the Baby-Sitters Club book series when I was younger, but I'd never seen the BSC movie before...UNTIL TODAY! Comcast was featuring the movie on On Demand, and I watched the entire thing. I absolutely loved it! Yes, there are some things that are different from the book, but overall I think the film did a great job of maintaining the integrity of the series. The casting was perfect: the seven BSC members were all great and remained very true to their characters. The story was good and I think this is a movie that parents will enjoy watching with their kids. I'm sure that kids will enjoy this movie even if they haven't read the BSC books, and maybe the film will even inspire them to seek out the books on their own. (As good as this movie is, nothing beats Ann M. Martin's paperback classics!) Perhaps the people who will enjoy this film most of all are people like me: women in their late 20s who grew up reading the BSC books. It was delightful to sit back, watch this movie, and rehash all those great memories.

Long live the BSC!

Being a BSC fan, I saw this movie right when it came out, and I also have a copy of it at home. It's a great film with a good storyline, but I can't help wondering what was wrong with the casting. Let's start with the leader Kristy Thomas. There's nothing wrong with Schuyler Fisk's acting, but she simply couldn't carry out the bossy, assertive, character that Kristy had. In this movie she's whiny, wimpy and totally takes a back seat--all the qualities that the character certainly should not have had. The other six girls were decent, but if you want to see these books come to life, stick with the videos that came out in the early 90's. Those girls knew how to carry out these roles--the movie is weakened by the poor acting and the changed personalities of the leading girls. It is a sweet story and has a fine message--very much in the Baby Sitters Club tradition--but the video series is 100 times better. BSC fans might be disappointed with this movie.

This is a true-to-the-books movie. I really enjoyed this movie and gave it 4 stars because it was PG. I think that it should have been G for the younger kids who read these books.In here the BSC is running a summer camp and run into alot of trouble. Kristy's dad comes back, Claudia is failing science and might have to drop out of the club, Stacey is in luv with a 17 year old, Mary Anne is forced to keep Kristy's dad a secret with Kristy, Dawn has to deal with a cranky neighbor who wants the camp to go away, Mallory and Jessi just trying to keep up with everything. What will happen? Find out in this must watch for BSC fans! I

Yes, the dialogue is corny, Mallory and Jessi get shafted (practically no lines for Jessi at all), and the tv series was much better. But this isn't a terrible movie either. I was a huge fan of the books as a kid, but hadn't seen this movie until my little sister rented it recently. I expected terrible acting, but Rachel Leigh Cook (of She's All That) really stands out as Mary Ann, and Larisa Oleynik (10 Thing I Hate About You, The Secret World of Alex Mack -what a great show!) and Schuyler Fisk (Orange County) do well too. Ellen Burstyn's appearance, while a bit random and very corny, is entertaining. The only one I wasn't impressed with was the actress playing Stacy. There's a whole lot going on in this movie, as each of the five older babysitters gets a least some subplot to herself, but it all ties together pretty well. There are some genuinely funny moments, and some more serious issues as well (Kristy deals with the reappearance of her deadbeat dad, who wants her to keep his presence a secret from her friends and family). While the movie will be most appreciated by younger girls, I think that people like me who grew up in the nineties will get a kick out of it too, with it's dated clothing, music (that awful rap scene!), pop-culture references, and of course, the babysitters themselves (and in their original form, great for those of us who remember the times before Dawn was replaced by Abby and similar blasphemous changes made).

This has to be one of my favorite Rachael Leigh Cook movies I have seen, it is also the first one I saw. The Babysitter's Club focuses on young girls who are all a part of a club called the Babysitter's Club. I'm not sure how many there are in it but I know they are all girls.
The Babysitter's Club decide to build a Summer Camp for little kids for the Summer. Some of the members of the Babysitter's Club have some of their own troubles like: Kristy's father returning home, Stacey lying to her boyfriend that she is 16 when she is actually 13, Mary Anne having to keep Kristy's secret a secret from the Club and Claudia's test that she is going to have to pass in order to stay in the club.
In the end, everything turns out good: Kristy's father leaves on the day of her birthday but sends letters everyday to her now instead once every year, Stacey's secret has finally been let out and her boyfriend still loves her, Mary Anne now has nothing to hide from the Club and Claudia passes her test. An amazing movie that can never be bored, I've watched it over and over again and I'm still loving it.
Expect to see Schuyler Fisk (plays Kristy Thomas), Bre Blair (plays Stacey McGill), Rachael Leigh Cook (my favorite actress. Plays Mary Anne Spier), Larisa Oleynik (plays Dawn Schafer), Tricia Joe (plays Claudia Kishi) and so on. It's a real good movie so if you haven't seen it, get off your butts and go out there and rent it!
