Don’t waste your time

This movie is not about the antics of a group of friends spending the summer babysitting. One of the main plots is about a romance between a 13 yr old girl and 17 yr old boy. Another plot is about a deadbeat dad who shows up unexpectedly, only to let the child down again. On top of that, it’s pretty boring - my easily amused 11 yr old thought it was OK and I hated it.

Disappointing

I watched this movie with my 10-year-old daughter and her 11-year old friend. We all found it boring. We had been looking forward to watching a movie about a "babysitting club", but that was not the main storyline. Instead, the main plot was about a divorced dad showing up in town and secretly meeting his daughter. Just weird. The "babysitting club" element involved the girls running a day camp for 30+ little kids, which we found very unrealistic. And the girls acted 16, rather than 13. A disappointing movie.

A wonderful movie for kids of all ages

I watched this movie when it came out since I remember reading the babysitters club series. The movie was just as positive as all of the books. Each of the girls are great role models, and have positive attitudes. These girls are level headed, business minded, and care about everyone. They practice sign language with a child who can't hear. I think the negative messages in this movie turn out to be positive. Kristy lies about where she is going, but in the end fixes the problem she caused. Stacey lies about her age to a boy, and neglects to use her medicine because she doesn't want to look silly. However, in the end Stacey tells her guy friend the truth, and this movie sheds some light on Diabetes, which some kids have no knowledge of. I would recommend this movie for any child, any age. It has great lessons, and no negative messages that I can think of.
