Chris' friend Brenda calls desperately from the downtown bus terminal as she has run away from home, but is stranded. Thus begins a crazy adventure as Chris must take her three charges with her--lovelorn Brad, Thor-idolizing Sara, and Brad's annoying friend Darryl--and weave in & out of each ludricous moment, while trying to get home before the parents do.
Fledgling director Chris Columbus guides the film deftly through a harrowing comedy maze. There is a subtlety here--particularly in the delicate "can-never-happen" romance between Chris & Brad--that Columbus achieves that makes his bigger success of "Home Alone" seem syrupy in comparison. One of the highlights--when the kids stumble into a blues bar while trying to escape the bad guys & have to sing the blues--could have easily been far-fetched. Instead, it's charmingly fun to watch. Slightly over 90 minutes long, it's amazing how many twists & turns happen in this movie.
This is a comedy which can be watched over & over again!
