    I never was a huge fan of the movie as much as my eldest sister was.

    But as for the books well, out of morbid couriosity I ask one of the girls in my class to get me into reading them...she said to read the first book before diving into the series and I wasn't at the end of the second chapter when I said....."screw this these girls are morons" and then checked something else out at the libary. So I just love your review on the movie it seems to say everything that I really thought about it.

    Though I am no fan of the Nostalgia Chick (because she is not as crazy as the Critic)... I admit she do a good job.

    Nice one Chick
  • Witney  - Memories... of beatings...
    Seeing as I don't have one of those... what did you call them? Vaginas?... Yeah, beause of that, I never got around to reading and of "The Babysitter's Club." I do, however, have a sister three years my senior who had an ample collection of them. She stacked them in a large yellow drawer along with her "Sweet Valley Twins/High" books.

    I recall that she was fiercely protective of these books. And not in the usual way (like the way some of my male friends protected basball cards, no); she was mean about it. If I, a mere six-year-old, was to touch her books, she would use her nine-year-old strength to pummel me and set my hair on fire.

    These threats only made wanting to se these girly books all the more alluring. What feminine secrets was she hiding in those secret tomes? I had to know.

    One afternoon, when I knew she wouldn't be home for a while, I peeked in the drawer. I flipped through some of her books, trying to find the secrets. I saw some bland illustrations of girls screaming and sitting kids, but nothing dark or revelatory. My curiosity piqed, I left them alone.

    Of course she knew that her books had been touched (how do big sisters do that?). She gave me an Indian burn that hurt the rest of the day.

    Thanks a lot Nostalgia Chick. My arm hurts again.

    oh lord, i had finally forgotten about the babysitter-s club, and the babysitter's club little sister. I was forced to read a few of the books in 3rd grade... -shutters- i was more of a Nancy Drew//Hardy Boys books type of girl....

    Well, let me first say, that from the moment I first saw you in the Ferngully review, I have been in love.
    Now that that creepiness is over...
    I don't remember this movie at all, at first I thought it was the Elisabeth Shue movie. But, great as always, funny and great music at the end.
    You probaly have already picked a new line but, here is my suggestion none the less

    "Im the Nostalgia Chick...Need I say more?"
    and then just wink and smile at the camera
    ;)

    Thanks for all the reviews
    laters

    Nostalgia Chick, you are amazing! This is great! Keep up the great work! You should review, "Jem and the Holograms" next XD

    Although I remember growing up with the books and the series I never watched/read them. But boy did that theme song [b]haunt[/b] my dreams every night.
  • SpazzMaster  - What the hell? "PUPPIES!!!" was pure GOLD!!! lol
    avatar
    Good review, as usual, but I still can't help to feel that [i]something[/i] was missing. Maybe it's because I'm a guy. I don't know. Fuck, I grew up with Power Rangers.

  • lissy  - Man did I hate this show
    avatar
    I hated the book series hated the show (I saw one episode and flipped the channel) and you couldn't pay me enough to watch the movie I never understood why people liked them then again I have never been quite right socially speaking and have never fit into one of the stereotypical clicks.
  • Daeron
    great as always, damn was that hilarious.
  • Witney  - One more thing.
    That film has an amazing cast!

    In addition to Rachael Leigh Cook and Schuyler Fisk, it had Bruce Davison (who is less Sen. Kelly and more Willard in my mind), Brooke Adams, Colleen Camp, and Acadmey Award winner Ellen Burstyn!

    I'm surprised to didn't make any Exorcist jokes.

    [b]DIABETES![/b] :shock:

    Holy hell, "The Babysitter's Club"!

    It's funny, I totally collected those books when I was a kid (hey, it was the trendy thing at the time!)...I even had a board game where they had to solve a mystery or something! The weirdest part is that I totally forgot all about them until now.

    I never did see that movie during my Babysitter's Club "obsession" (if you could call it that) but based on that "rap" scene alone, maybe it's a good thing I didn't see it.

    Keep on rocking, Lindsay! :D

    You know, I liked that rap scene better when they did it on Happy Days. And it wasn't a rap.

    As always, excellent stuff, Lindsay! ^_^
  • YigSnakeDaddy
    Is it just me or hasn't Zach Braff aged since this show?
  • LordOrin  - "I love diabetes."

    Hilarious :lol:

    Also awesome choices of music B)
  • Erinaceus  - I Still Have a Thing for Larissa Oleynik...
    avatar
    A movie that uses Diabetes as a thinly-veiled metaphor for AIDS?

    Apparently, this film didn't have the budget to hire any medical consultant who could've told them just how poor such a metaphor would be.

    On a lighter note, as a male, I never read the books or saw this film, and the only actress I recognized was Larissa Oleynik, as I was an Alex Mack fan as a kid, and I still find her attractive.

    Damn... I wanted Alex Mack to continue beyond its apparent finale, but no, Larissa had to leave to become Cobra Commander... erm... *[i]Tommy's[/i]* love interest in 3rd Rock From The Sun.

    But perhaps a future Nostalgia Chick review of Alex Mack will suffice instead ;)

    I kinda regret that I didn't get in on that catchphrase gig... maybe it's not too late... I'll make a suggestion as soon as I think of one as good as some of those.
  • lackeyofthecritic  - Really?
    I'm the same with you, except the only girl [u][b]I[/b][/u] recognized was Marla Sokoloff, or "Cokie", and that's cause I'm a Full House fan. :D
  • Shadow_Dinosaur  - Swell

    [color=navy]I enjoyed this review Lindsay! Great job with it! ^^

    P.s Those are some funny catchphrases.[/color]

    another great video as usual.

    Haha this was actually on t'other day. God it was awful... Also the channel airing it kept putting apostrophies in the title card, but it kept moving. It was odd.

    The film itself was prety... confused. Also if they are actually just a bunch of steriotypes how did they get together to form the club in the firstplace.
  • SnapperCarr

    I would've gone with:
    Are you DENSE?
    Are you... RETARDED or something?
    Who the hell do you think I am?
    Etc.

    Although, now that I think about it, it would be more appropriate for Linkara anyway.
  • Lucia32  - ......
    But he already has a catchphrase:

    "I AM A MAN!"


    I would have gone with the double x-chromosome one. It just screams GIRL POWER.

    i usually like your work,just felt rushed in this one.

    great potential there, just needs some breathing room and nice build-up and timing
