When the bad guys are chasing Sara, she leaves perfect chocolate fingerprints on the elevator buttons. However, when she stole the chocolate pastry from the French restaurant she was wearing green gloves. She had them on when she ran to the building. The chocolate never touched her hands, so she couldn't have left the fingerprints on the buttons. However the chocolate fingerprints have the visible imprint of the wool fabric, so they were made with the gloves on. See more »

The UK cinema version (released as "A Night On The Town") was cut by 8 secs for a PG rating to remove uses of the word 'fuck'. Later video versions were released under the original title and uncut after being upgraded to a 15 certificate. The print UK television uses for daytime showings however is the PG-friendly cut cinema version, carrying the 'A Night On The Town' title - so it can appear on UK television under both titles at times depending on the time of day it is shown.

In the suburbs of Chicago, the seventeen year-old Chris Parker (Elisabeth Shue) is in love with her boyfriend Mike (Bradley Whitford). When Mike stands her up and cancels their dinner in Chicago, Chris accepts to babysit the siblings Sara (Maia Brewton) and Brad (Keith Coogan). But her friend Brenda (Penelope Ann Miller) calls her telling that she decided to run away home but now she has repented; she begs Chris to rescue her from the bus station in downtown Chicago. Chris makes a deal with Sara and Brad and when she is ready to drive to downtown, Brad's friend Daryl (Anthony Rapp) overhears the negotiation and blackmails Chris to go with them. However, when they are on the expressway, Chris has a flat tire and she realizes that she has forgotten her purse in the house. The mechanic Pruitt (John Ford Noonan) stops this tow truck and offers to truck the car to his garage. Chris sees no other option and accepts the offer in the beginning of an unforgettable night of adventures in Chicago.
"Adventures in Babysitting" is one of those adorable cult-movies for the entire life. I saw this movie in the 80's and since then, it has become one of my top movies ever. There are unforgettable scenes and maybe my favorite is when Albert Collins says that nobody leaves the club without singing a blues. The 25th anniversary Blu-Ray is really a worthwhile shopping. My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): "Uma Noite de Aventuras" ("One Night of Adventures")
Note: On 16 April 2019, I saw this film again.
